Bachmann will announce decision on presidential bid by 'early summer'

Under the looming threat of a government shutdown, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) was one of six GOP members of the House to vote against a two-week extension on the budget last week.

Congress must now agree on a budget by March 18 or once again risk a shutdown. But, Rep. Bachmann says she will only support a budget proposal that defunds Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. So, would she be willing again to let the government shutdown?

And, will Rep. Bachmann join the 2012 race for the White House? Kiran Chetry talks to Rep. Bachmann in an exclusive American Morning interview.
