"Well I think if that gets us to where we need to be, it may be something we need to consider, because the one thing we won’t do is put the full faith and credit of the United States at risk," Bachmann said according to Roll Call. "It’s foolish, and I don’t think that’s going to happen."

As of Thursday morning, the details of a proposed debt limit deal were still unclear.
