Bachmann Talks Up Anti-Global Money Amendment, Gets 30 Cosponsors

Bachmann's proposed constitutional amendment states: "The President may not enter into a treaty or other international agreement that would provide for the United States to adopt as legal tender in the United States a currency issued by an entity other than the United States."

Again, there is no such proposal on the table, to replace the dollar as legal tender in the United States. The proposal going around has to do with the creation of a new unit of exchange and reserves for international trade.

Bachmann seemed to understand part of this distinction during the Glenn Beck appearance, and was warning that the replacement of the dollar as the international standard would by itself seriously devalue the dollar. But she also gave a whole lot of dire warnings about the threat of international institutions subverting the constitution and American authority, so she definitely covered all the bases.
