Nancy Pelosi Says Tax Cuts Are Gov’t Spending

From CNS News:

Pelosi: ‘Tax Cuts Are Spending’

By Terence P. Jeffrey | March 7, 2013

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said today that the government must cut spending, and then explained that: “Tax cuts are spending.”

“Our whole budget is what $3.5 trillion,” Pelosi said at a Capitol Hill press conference. “So, when we talk about reducing spending, we certainly must, and we certainly have–$1.6 trillion in the previous Congress, $1.2 of it in the Budget Control Act.

“But spending is also related to tax cuts,” said Pelosi. "Tax cuts are spending. Tax expenditures, they are called. Subsidies for big oil, subsidies to send jobs overseas, breaks to send jobs overseas, breaks for corporate jets."

There are no subsidies for sending jobs overseas. There are no tax breaks for sending jobs overseas. None. Zero. This is one of Pelosi and Obama’s Big Lies.

And, for the record, there are no subsidies for big oil, either. In fact, they don’t even get a tax break. They pay the same rate as other producers and manufacturers do, who deal in similar finite resources.

"They are called tax expenditures. Spending money on tax breaks. And that’s the spending that we must curtail as well,” she said…

So tax cuts are now government spending. Just like up is down. And war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength. Still, it’s only natural Ms. Pelosi would believe this, since she believes everything belongs to the government.

But, hell’s bells, if tax cuts are government spending, then why not have more of them? After all, we’re constantly told that government spending is the only way to grow the economy.

    Shipping jobs overseas is a tax break. You get a break from having to pay all the onerous pay roll taxes and obamacare taxes. Which is why democrats continue to kill American jobs with their taxes budget cuts.

    If not for wealth and political clout, Nancy Pelosi would be taking afternoon walks with the institution’s attendant.

    Pelosi reminds me of one of those robots from that Star Trek episode Mudd’s Women. Minus the obvious ‘woman’ ingredient.

      Ms Pelosi, you say that tax cuts are government spending, could you please explain further?

      “I’m sorry, I’m not programed to respond in that area.”

      (The episode was actually “I, Mudd” with all the androids he made to toil at his disposal. “Mudd’s Women” was the first episode involving Harcort Fenton Mudd where he was marketing women to ‘lonely’ men for a price.)

    • The truth is that Demonicrats believe it all belongs to them, and any attempt to lower the tax burden “costs the government” revenue. Listen for that phrase, i.e., “these Republican changes will cost the government…” blah, blah.

      Pelosi’s medication is what’s costing us. I’d give anything to see her prescription list and dosages. What exotic chemicals is she ingesting?
