"The other statement that was made was by the President, saying to senior citizens, 'We don't know if you'll get your Social Security checks in August.' There were people in Dexter, Iowa, who canceled their Internet, who canceled their satellite TV because they didn't think that the President was going to get their Social Security check to them. That was more than irresponsible, it sent a very bad signal. I wouldn't do that to senior citizens."
—U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann
