Bachmann And Weiner Spar Over Debt Ceiling (VIDEO)

Face The Nation yesterday featured some, er, spirited debate from Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Anthony Weiner (D-NY), Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL), and Rep.-Elect Mike Kelly (R-PA) over the debt ceiling.Sample exchange: Weiner accused the Republicans of heading toward a government shut-down. Bachmann replied: “You’re stating it falsely. We are not looking to shut the government down, no one benefits. But at the same time we are not looking at wanting to continually raise the debt ceiling.”

Weiner shot back: “I don’t know what you call it Michele, but that’s shutting down the government.”

The whole thing’s about 15 minutes, but things get good about halfway through:
