Facebook fans weigh in on Michele Bachmann

The Minnesota congresswoman has yet to declare, but she's taken extreme positions on issue after issue—supporting Republican plans that end Medicare as we know it, make tax cuts for the wealthy permanent, and repeal health reform.

With 1,500 votes, the fact our Facebook fans find most alarming is Bachmann's support for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, a plan that would increase our deficit by at least 75 percent.
