Pelosi: GOP Is Saddling Children With Debt

A press release from the Speaker Of The House:

Pelosi Statement on Republican Opposition to Jobs Bill

WASHINGTON, Aug. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in advance of tomorrow’s vote to create or save 310,000 American jobs – preserving the jobs of teachers, nurses, firefighters, and police officers, and boosting the private sector – and in response to Republican plans reiterated on the Sunday talk shows yesterday to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest few Americans and protect tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas:

"Taking a page out of the failed Bush playbook, Congressional Republicans want to saddle future generations with nearly $700 billion in debt to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest few, while opposing a fully paid-for jobs bill that reduces the deficit and keeps teachers in the classroom and police officers on the beat.

What a study in shameless mendacity. This is amazing, even for Ms. Pelosi. Now she is worried about saddling future generations with debt?

And exactly how does giving yet another $26 billion dollars to public sector unions reduce the deficit?

Instead, Congressional Republicans demean our educators and law enforcement officials as ‘special interests’ – and fight to protect a glaring loophole that encourages corporations to ship American jobs overseas.

"Why wouldn’t House Republicans want to keep 310,000 teachers, first responders and private sector workers on the job instead of on the unemployment lines?

You see, as always, there are no other people who can possibly be fired. The cities are at rock bottom. They have fired everyone else.

And exactly which private sector workers will get any of this money?

"America’s workers and families deserve better. Democrats are fighting for the middle class and working to create good-paying jobs here at home and keep America number one around the world.

Yes, if you have any question about how good these jobs are, just look at the salaries for Los Angeles city workers we posted earlier.

"Congressional Republicans promise to return to the ‘exact same agenda’ that cost millions of Americans their jobs, homes, and life savings. We are moving our country forward. And we are not going back to the failed Bush policies that left us with deep deficits, a deep recession, and the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression."

Mr. Bush’s tax cuts did all of that? We thought they had lifted us out of a recession and got us through 9/11 and Katrina with a growing economy and record low unemployment numbers. Is there no end to his perfidy?

By the way, isn’t Ms. Pelosi the ‘Speaker’ of the whole House? Just like Mr. Obama is supposed to be the President of the entire nation, both Democrat and Republican? Has there ever been such a partisan Speaker? Such a partisan President?

But Ms. Pelosi is absolutely correct to call this latest bailout is a ‘jobs bill.’ In fact, it’s a keep Congressional Democrats’ their jobs bill.

    The psychopathy of Nancy Pelosi leaves no other possible explanation than she has a brain tumor.

    Or, she is the hand maiden of Satan.

    I can’t come up with a third answer.

    • proreason says:

      Her brain was probably damaged at birth……in addition to a brain tumor in recent years.

      And the botox might have seeped into her cranial cavity.

      I would like to see her go through a bettery of simple tests:
      – use a letter opener to open an envelope
      – crack an egg
      – open a locked car with a key
      – etc.

      the results would be enough to get her impeached.

    • jobeth says:

      Every time she opens her mouth lately my jaw drops and I just want to yell…WT, uh… heck!!!!!!…(I try not to use the F word…:-D )

      She is so “out there”.

      I don’t see how she can lie like that. Watching her…even SHE stumbles all over her lies. And that’s saying something when a pathological liar can’t even get through her own lies with out stammering and stuttering.

      She needs a rubber room and a new wardrobe (straight jacket)

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Her brain was probably damaged at birth….

      You cannot damage that which does not exist.

      For when she was …uh….”born”….the midwife removed said brain and gave it to the family fish. The empty cranium was thus able to be replaced with dogma, pot smoke, free love and “compassion” for seals and sea otters and whales.

      It’s a language only a few understand. And they are proud that the uncool, unenlightened masses don’t know how to speak “hip”.

    GBJ – She is a Democrat.

    Yes,yes – when you are pushing through yet another deficit raising, Union payback, non pay-go bill – point out that the GOP wants to keep tax cuts (to the rich) still on the books.

    Any distortion, any lie, any crappola – when you got the media on your side – it’s a win-win – Blame Bush got the most inexperienced, most empty of suits, most divisive liar into the WH – this is just child’s play. And they are going to try it again in the midterms.

    Still bet buried deep in this pos Union payback is the last homage to the Unions – Card Check.

    Impeach, Repeal, Restore – Three little words that will make such a difference in NOvember.

    Why SNL hasn’t copped Ol’ Crazy Eyes yet is beyond me.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      It’s not funny to make public fun of the mentally handicapped. (just sayin’)

    • AcornsRNutz says:

      Because they only had attractive females, so they could only mock Palin. They’d have to go get the corpse of Gilda Radner for this mission.

  4. Right of the People says:

    “We are moving our country forward.”

    The Botox Queen left off two words there or maybe she was misquoted. It should read:

    “We are moving our country forward to socialism.”

    There, it makes more sense now.

    Jack, a tumor would probably be an improvement to that peanut that is rattling around inside her cranium.

    • jobeth says:

      “We are moving our country forward to socialism.”

      I seem to remember Maxine Waters letting that slip out once…lol. Even the people around her couldn’t hold the laughter in.

      If Nance is afraid to use the “S” word, someone should be letting her know even Newsweek mag has spilled those beans.
