"The Senate's plan has billions in tax increases and not one dime in spending cuts," Bachmann tweeted. "It's a recipe for massive job loss in 2013. Senators only got (the) legislative text 10 minutes before (the) 2 a.m. vote began. How many had enough time to print out bill let alone read it?"

"The tax this year would increase by two percentage points, to 6.2 percent from 4.2 percent, on all earned income up to $113,700."
