Update: Aug. 16
The New York Times blogs, in a piece ("The Caucus") by James Dao, explains how a President Bachmann could reinstate the "old ban" (mandatory asking) by fiat, here. And the Huffington Post has an article by SLDN's Aubrey Sarvis, "Somebody should tell Bachmann: Our military leaders ended DADT", here. "Perhapth" with some arm twisting. A deeper point seems to be that someone with the irresponsibility of Bachmann should not be in office at all. Someone who think's it's OK for the country to stiff people on due bills is a bit unpredictable.
