LAS VEGAS (AP) — Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann says when it comes to the tax code, “everyone should pay something.”

Bachmann says during a Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas that she wants to encourage an “economic miracle” that came about under President Ronald Reagan during the 1980s.

But she says every American should pay some amount in taxes “even if it’s a dollar.”

Bachmann reiterated her calls to repeal a health care plan pushed under President Barack Obama and tighter regulations on the financial industry.
