**GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachman (R-Minnesota) has identified a way to get her to vote for raising the debt ceiling instead of tanking the economy. From the Hill:
"They'd have to cut an enormous amount, including they would have to defund Obamacare," she said on Fox News in response to a question about the circumstances under which she'd vote to raise the debt ceiling. "Because that's the largest entitlement in the history of the country."
A new report out this week says that under federal health reform, states stand to save $100 billion from 2014 to 2019.
