Pelosi says “Republicans Just Don’t Want To Tax Enough…”

Washington, D.C.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters in a briefing today that “Republicans just don’t want to tax enough to make this problem go away. Everyone knows that the government needs more money.  It is spending $1.5 trillion more each year than it brings in. This simply will not do.  If the people, the tea baggers and their kind in Congress can’t understand that their money is really ours – then I don’t know what planet they’re from.”   When asked what she meant by “tea baggers”, Pelosi, irritatedly dismissed the question by saying “You know full well what I mean.”

Pressed on what taxes she believed would raise enough revenue to solve the budget crisis, Pelosi replied: “All of them. We have to think BIG. This crisis wasn’t brought about with small spending and it won’t be solved with small taxing.” Regarding the upcoming Congressional Super Committee, she intimated that Democrats fully expect Republicans to give way on tax increases. “They really have no choice anymore. Punishing the troops with extreme cuts while protecting Billionaire Bob from paying his fair share would be a nightmare for them. It’s not really a matter of if but how much.”
