House Democrat Minority Leader Pelosi Says Tax Hikes Must Be Part of Next Deficit Deal … Dems Look for Additional $1 Trillion in new Taxes in 2013
And you bought the notion that Democrats just wanted to tax the rich … Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the Democrats have not even yet started to tax “We the People”.
House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi says that tax hikes must be a part of the next fiscal deal. Hmm, they have already taxed the rich and now they are coming after the rest. Never forget that Democrats want to tax your dreams as well. Elections have consequences and sadly too many suckers bought Obama’s class warfare rhetoric and now ALL Americans will face tax increases.
From The Hill, Democrats want nothing to do with cutting back their wasteful and over the top spending, they just want to continually tax We the People . At some point the American people need to take the credit card away from these children.
Democrats say they want to raise as much as $1 trillion in new revenues through tax reform later this year to balance Republican demands to slash mandatory spending.
Democratic leaders have had little time to craft a new position for their party since passing a tax deal Tuesday that will raise $620 billion in revenue over the next ten years.
The emerging consensus, however, is that the next installment of deficit reduction should reach $2 trillion and about half of it should come from higher taxes.
This sets up tax reform as one of the biggest fights of the 113th Congress, which began on Thursday.
Republicans say tax reform should be revenue neutral. Additional revenues collected by eliminating or curbing tax breaks and deductions should be used to lower rates.
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has dismissed the possibility of negotiating additional tax increases.
House Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Botches Speech: “We Don’t Have the Majority but We Have the Gavel” Um, Really?
Nancy Pelosi may want to look the definition of “minority” leader up.
Yesterday during an interview with reporters, House Minority Leader San Fran Nan had a wishful thinking moment and told reporters, “We don’t have the majority but we have the gavel.” Hmm, not so fast Nancy. Last time I checked the Republicans still held the House. Pelosi then corrected her gaffe and got a good laugh out of it. I guess Nancy needed to read her prepared speech before she knew what was in it. What is frightening is that this is what Democrats call the leader of their party in the House. Pelosi certainly presents good material to write on, but does little to further the help that America needs during these trying times. She announced that she would seek another term as Minority leader.
For all those who think that Obama has a mandate because he won the 2012 Presidential election, by only 2% might I add, who thinks that Pelsoi is going to back down in the House as the minority party?
Nancy Pelosi Doubles Down … ‘It Is A Fact’ That Somebody Told Harry Reid About Romney Not Paying Taxes
Welcome to the Nancy Pelosi – Bill Clinton semantics game. Ever wonder why we loathe politicians and why their approval ratings is below pond scum, House Minority Leader Pelosi has much to do with it. Sadly, the Democrats have decided to play gutter politics. However, these are Barack Obama campaign approved gutter politics …
In a perfect example of water seeking its own level, Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defends Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his comment that Mitt Romney had not paid taxes in 10 years. but in this case the water is more pond scum. Did you catch what she said? Its a fact that some one told Reid that Romney had not paid taxes, not that it is a fact that Romney did not pay taxes. Sleazy politics at its worse. We knew because Obama could not run on his record this would be one of the worst low ankle biting campaigns ever, but this one will be hard to challenge, EVER!
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) fired back at Republicans accusing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) of lying about a Bain Capital investor telling him that Mitt Romney hadn’t paid taxes in 10 years. They don’t know what they’re talking about, Pelosi says.
“Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,” Pelosi told The Huffington Post in a Sunday interview. “Whether he did or not can easily be disposed of: Mitt Romney can release his tax returns and show whether he paid taxes.”
Both Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus came out swinging against Reid on Sunday over his claims about Romney potentially not paying taxes. Asked to respond to Priebus calling Reid “a dirty liar” over the situation, Pelosi initially responded, “Who?” She went on to say that Priebus doesn’t know what he’s talking about since he wasn’t part of Reid’s conversations.
“Well he doesn’t know that,” Pelosi said. “Harry Reid is a person who is, as we know, A, is a fighter, B, he wouldn’t say this unless it was true that somebody told him that.
So if some said to a Republican that Pelosi was a tax cheat and had made money illegally from her position as Speaker of the House and Minority Leader due to her ability to get inside information, would that be a fact as well? BTW Harry, I was told that you did not pay them either, I think you have to show your taxes as well. Isn’t it rather comical and typical that Dingy Harry refuses to provide his tax returns while calling for others to do so. Put up or shut up you hypocrite!
All this while Democrats refuse to talk about the economy and jobs and just play slight of hand political games.
US Rep. Allen West (FL-R) Calls Nancy Pelosi ‘somewhat delusional’ … Sarah Palin Trumps Him With Pelosi is a ‘Dingbat’
SAN FRAN NAN SOMEWHAT DELUSIONAL OR A TOTALLY MOONBAT DINGBAT … YOU MAKE THE CALL
US Rep. Allen West (FL-R) voiced his opinion as to Democrat House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s response to the SCOTUS ruling that Obamacare. West called Pelosi “some what delusional” to her comment regarding Obamacare, “if it’s good for the country, basically, who cares how we got there?” This might be the first time I have disagree with Col. Allen West. Somewhat delusional sir? How about completely delusional? This coming from the individual when she was Speaker of the House, that “we need to pass the bill in order to find out what is in it.” West also pointed out that the Obamacare was a deception on the American people from the outset. Once the healthcare bill was passed along a Democrat party vote in the House and Senate, we found out what was in the bill … IT WAS A TAX!!!
Check out the VIDEO here … Freshman Rep. West: Nancy Pelosi ‘somewhat delusional’ – The Hill’s Video.
Allen West, a freshman member of the Republican Study Committee, called former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) “somewhat delusional” Thursday evening during an interview on Fox News in response to a question from Fox’s Patti Ann Browne.
“You heard Nancy Pelosi saying, look, if it’s good for the country, basically, who cares how we got there?” Browne said. When asked for his response, West didn’t hold back.
“Well, I think that former Speaker Pelosi is somewhat delusional, but also you have to remember that this was the person that said that we have to pass this bill in order to find out what is in this bill,” West said from the Capitol Rotunda.
“There has been a deception against the American people from the onset … the president said that this was not a tax. Now we know it is only constitutional because it is seen as a tax.”
Sarah Palin: “Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat …”
“Nancy Pelosi is a dingbat and the perfect spokesman for Barack Obama and the entire agenda of the far left.”
Video Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
However, “some what delusional” has been trumped by Sarah Palin calling Pelosi a Dingbat. Priceless. Palin gets an A+ for using an Archie Bunker, ‘All in the Family’ reference. This is why Sarah Palin resonates so well with those on the RIGHT and drives the LEFT up the wall and off the ledge. Is there a better word to describe Peloso’s and the Democrats vision? Sorry, but I am going to have to go retro and use “dingbat” rather than the current “moonbat” reference. OMG, next thing Palin will call Harry Reid a “meathead”. If that happens I know that I have died and gone to Heaven. If I were elected President, I would make Sarah Palin my Press Secretary and have here drive the inside the Beltway, White House media insane. That would be must see TV … JMHO.
Nancy Pelosi’s & House Democrats Disrespect for Slain Border Agent Brian Terry, Botches Terry’s Name While Addressing Congress on Holder Contempt “Fast & Furious” Charges Before Walking Out (VIDEO)
The disrespect continues toward the family and the memory of slain border patrol agent Brian Terry by House Democrats and Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). While speaking on the House floor opposing the contempt charges of Attorney General Eric Holder and calling it a political witch hunt, Pelosi actually managed to mess up saying Brian Terry’s name. Really? San Fran Nan has no problem using the words witch hunt and racism, as well as actually walk out of the House without casting a vote, but she can botch the name of an American hero gunned down as a result of “Fast and Furious”. One would think that the leader of a party would want answers for the family. Who is playing politics Nancy?
cat got your tongue Nancy? As Pelosi expressed condolences to his family, she called him “Brian Tay, Tay, Terry”
NANCY PELOSI: I think we all also agree, I think we all very, very much agree that we are very sad and seek justice for the family of border patrol agent Brian Tay, Tay, Terry. His loss is a tragedy for all who knew him, for all of us who care about him, and we offer our condolences to his family. So sad.
Just curious, how sincere is a condolence when you cannot even spit the individuals name out?
I’m sorry, I must have missed how child sex trafficking is about banking and against the 1%? Child sex trafficking is pretty much universally condemned as one of the most vile, disgusting, reprehensible and immoral acts known to mankind, except by the Occupy Oakland protesters. How could anyone support child sex trafficking?
VIDEO of Occupy Oakland protesters – “Occupiers: All your credibility is lost after antics like that.”
On Wednesday, June 13, members of the Occupy movement protested against a conference dedicated to combatting child sex trafficking — thus, the Occupiers in essence were coming out in favor of one of society’s most loathsome moral crimes.
The protesters mostly were members of Occupy Oakland Patriarchy, a group within the overall Occupy movement tasked with overthrowing our civilization’s “patriarchy.”
The conference which so infuriated them was called HEAT Watch, short for the National Human Exploitation And Trafficking Watch Conference.
If there’s one issue that unites Americans of all political stripes, it’s the sexual enslavement of children. Whatever our opinions on other issues, we all agree that sex trafficking and the prostituting of children is an outrage and a tragedy. Thus, conference attendees included liberal, moderate and conservative politicians; progressive nonprofit organizations; law enforcement groups; religious leaders; and (according to the conference Web site) “social services, medical providers, mental health, education, probation, and
The Gateway Pundit reminds us of Democrat House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s praise of the Occupy protesters, “Bless Them”.
Seriously, check out the complete insanity of what has become the Occupy Wall Street movement, courtesy of the Occupy Oakland and all of the pics and videos from ZOMBIE. This is beyond insane and reprehensible. Do these whack jobs have any idea what they are protesting, or worse, do they? SM echoes the outrage of the Lonely Conservative … “These people are nuts. Watch them “bum rush” the conference. Zombie said they also threw paint bombs, eggs and unknown liquids. As if that’s supposed to make them sympathetic figures.”
UPDATE I: Powerline has a great post on the demise of the Occupy Protest Movement.
Nancy Pelosi Says Hillary Clinton Democrats Best Shot in 2016, as Obama Battles for Reelection in 2012
Talk about your lack of confidence and focus for their President seeking reelection …
As Democrat Barack Obama heads into a tough reelection 2012 campaign for the Presidency, Democrat House Minority Leader provides and underhanded slap to Barack. As reported at the Politico, regarding Hillary Clinton … “She’s our shot” that year. Quite interesting that Hillary Clinton continues to take the spot light away from Obama. Just how many Democrats have buyer’s remorse and wish they had voted for Hillary in the 2008 Democrat primaries?
Nancy Pelosi, who touched off a new wave of Hillary Clinton-for-president buzz two months ago by talking up the secretary of state as a 2016 candidate, keeps it up in an interview with the Chronicle’s Carla Marinucci:
Pelosi is upbeat about the prospects for a female president in her lifetime, namely her friend Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Why wouldn’t she run? She’s a magnificent secretary of state,” Pelosi said when asked about Clinton’s prospects in 2016. “She’s our shot” that year, Pelosi said.
Why wouldn’t she run? Well, if hell freezes over and Obama is reelected, the United States is going to be in such disarray the last thing that the voters would want is another liberal Democrat. Also, if Romney wins and fixes the economy, how does Hillary even think that she could win? That’s how Nancy. Democrats are in the middle of a 2012 election year that could see them lose the White House and the Senate to Republicans. Why on Earth are they talking about 2016?
Nancy Pelosi … Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Obamacare … San Fran Nan Likens Obamacare to Declaration of Independence
Does Democrat Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have no shame? How about any common sense?Nancy Pelosi actually had the audacity to liken Obamacare to the Declaration of Independence and “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness”. UNREAL. This coming from the Democrat who told us we must pass the bill in order to find out what was in it. Last time I checked Nancy, “We the People” did not require “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” to be shoved down our throats against our will.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday evening that the 2010 healthcare law, which prompted complaints from conservatives that Democrats far exceeded their constitutional authority, actually helps people meet the goal outlined in the Declaration of Independence, which promotes mankind’s rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Pelosi’s Daughter Says She Wants (Prefers) to Retire … Now Pelosi’s Office Says Daughter is Wrong when she Says the California Democrat wants to Leave Politics
This has all the making of a 1970′s Miller Lite Beer commercial with the former and dearly departed Yankees manager Billy Martin and owner George Steinbrenner.
Just the other day it was reported by Big Government that Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra Pelosi said her mother wants to leave Congress and that she remains in Washington only at the behest of her campaign donors. Of course my first thought was, wow, what a martyr Pelosi is. Heavy is the crown that Pelosi wears. Pelosi borrows a line from God Father III, “Just when I thought I was out…they pull me back in.”
She would retire right now, if the donors she has didn’t want her to stay so badly. They know she wants to leave, though. They think she’s destined for the wilderness. She has very few days left. She’s 71, she wants to have a life, she’s done. It’s obligation, that’s all I’m saying.
There are many of us that want her to retire right now as well.
Well, looks like the news has hit Nancy Peloi’s $10,000 a night hotel room in Hawaii. A spokesman for Democrat House Minority Leader Pelosi says that the story just is not true. How could Pelosi think of leaving Congress, how would she be able to use inside government information to make stock trades? Outside of the Beltway, this would be a crime.
However, the point could be moot after the 2012 elections if Democrats lose even more seats in the House, the GOP regains control of the Senate and Obama loses reelection. If any one, two or all three of these things occur, Democrats are going to have to go a different direction in leadership. It is hard to imagine that Pelosi would stay in Congress as just a back bencher.
Nadeam Elshami, a spokesman for the House minority leader, said it’s simply not true.
“This may be wishful thinking on the part of a right-wing blog, but it is totally untrue,” Elshami said. “When the day comes and Leader Pelosi’s work is done, she won’t be announcing it there.”
Alexandra Pelosi didn’t deny uttering the remark but declined to expand in an email to POLITICO.
One way or another, if Dems lose control of the Senate, Obama loses or the House goes further Republican … Democrats will look for new leadership in the House and Nancy Pelosi will retire.
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!”
Despicable … OWS Protesters Target School Kids in Their Day of Outrage … OWS Protesters Chant “Follow Those Kids!” So this is what Obama, Pelosi and Reid endorse, eh. The OWS protesters have so crossed the line on acceptable behavior. This is not freedom of speech.
The Occupy Wall Street movement is officially over … you claimed to be protesting banks and economic inequality, code for redistribution of wealth. Yesterday OWS targeted and harassed school children. Stick a fork in OWS, they are done. What little support that remained for the OWS protesters just went out the window. On Thursday in NYC, OWS protesters harasses children and working folks alike as they caused chaos th the city. One question, what are you trying to accomplish, how hated a movement can become?
They were caught in the middle of madness.
Some grade school students were forced to walk a gauntlet of screaming “Occupy Wall Street” protesters just to get to school on Thursday.
It was a wild day in lower Manhattan for most everyone involved, including elementary school children who had to brave the mayhem just to get to class on the other side of Wall Street.
In the middle of thousands of protestors yelling and chanting — some kicking and screaming – CBS 2’s Emily Smith found little school kids trying to get to class. Nervous parents led them through the barriers on Wall Street. The NYPD helped funnel the children, anything to ease their fears while some protestors chanted “follow those kids!”
“These guys are terrorists, yelling at little kids,” one father said.
Follow those kids? Seriously? Weasel Zippers reminds us that the number of school kids stalked and terrorized by Tea Party member is ZERO! These protesters do not represent the 99%, they represent the worst of what American can be and mob rule. Who in their right mind would target children? President Obama, Pelosi and Reid … Where is your outrage or is this what the Democrat party in 2011 now stands behind? This endorsement from Democrats will come back to haunt them in the 2012 elections.
More pics and VIDEO at the Gateway Pundit.
The mood of most Americans is becoming the attitude shared by that of Rep. Michael G. Grimm (R,C-NY) regarding the Occupy Wall Street mob … “it’s time for the OWS protesters to pack up their tents, buy a bar of soap, and head home.”
“These people have overstayed their welcome and it’s time they get the heck out of New York City. Between the filth, the smell, the incessant noise, and threat to public safety, they have done nothing but cause a nuisance to the people who work and live in Lower Manhattan. They’ve cost the city and surrounding businesses millions of dollars, and it’s time these people find a more productive use of their time. New Yorkers have had ENOUGH!
