WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann says she has no "inside information" on the sexual harassment allegations swirling about GOP rival Herman Cain and says it's unfortunate the controversy is overshadowing discussion of how to fix the economy.

The Minnesota congressman tells NBC's "Today" show "you won't find any surprises with me." Otherwise, she refuses to talk publicly about the allegations against the Georgia businessman.

Bachmann says people want to know "when in the world are we going to see this economy turn around."

She said her proposals would make the tax system simpler, fairer and more equitable. Bachmann also says that the political furor surrounding Cain is "garnering a lot of attention" but at the cost of a meaningful discussion on how to get people back to work.
