Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) on Tuesday warned the Republican leadership in the House to take a stand on the debt ceiling, saying in an interview it's what voters expect. 

Bachmann, who was at odds with her party's leadership over the budget deal struck earlier this month said in a Fox News interview that voters aren't in a compromising mood when it comes to the debt ceiling. 

"That's our hope that they do that and that's what the expectation is of the people," Bachmann said when asked if she was confident House leaders would hold out for major concessions on spending before agreeing to raise the debt limit. "At least two-thirds of the American people are just saying, 'No, don't raise the debt ceiling at all.'"

The Minnesota Republican, who's weighing a presidential run next year, said the only way she would vote for a debt ceiling increase is if it came with a "total defunding of ObamaCare."

"It's possible I might be at odds with the Republican Party again," Bachmann said of the upcoming debt limit vote. "I know very clearly what people are telling me in my district in Minnesota and around the country. They're saying, 'We're tired of giving the government more authority to borrow money.'"

As for 2012, Bachmann reiterated that she expects to make a decision by June, though she left the door open for an earlier announcement. She also touted her first quarter fundraising haul, singling out former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

"And last quarter, I raised more money than any of the other candidates, even Mitt Romney," she said Tuesday.

Between her political action committee and her congressional campaign account, Bachmann raised some $2.2 million. That topped the $1.9 million raised by Romney in the quarter. 

"You've often heard candidates say they have to know they have the fire in the belly and they have to be convinced that this is the right thing," she said of a 2012 run. "That's what my husband and I are doing right now."
