I believe in the free market. I want to bring free-market policies back to health care. And that will give our people in this country better care."
Schieffer then asked Bachmann whether she would say anything like this when she is on stage with Romney at a debate (a possible reference to how Bachmann's fellow Minnesotan, Tim Pawlenty, famously choked on the same question at the last debate).

"But I'm sure undoubtedly, we'll be bringing up this issue of health care, because it's been the signature issue for President Obama. People are not happy with it. The President needed to focus on the economy, and what this will be is one of the largest spending projects that the federal government has ever taken on. And we simply can't afford it right now. So I-- undoubtedly, this is something we'll talk about."
