Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), a Tea Party favorite and possible presidential contender, says that the rumored government shut down "won't happen because it won't serve anyone's interests."


In the interview with Newsmax, Bachmann also took the opportunity to bash Obama's presidency, saying that the GOP needs to "win the White House...to see the repeal of Obamacare."
