Nancy Pelosi – We Don’t Have A Spending Problem

There are times when someone says something so incredibly stupid that it just begs to be shared. Such is the case with the Democratic Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Madam Nancy Pelosi. She was on Fox News yesterday and she actually had the nerve to come out and say what is no doubt the prevailing opinion of the liberal wing of her party. I just can’t believe she said it on national TV.

(Breibart)With the sequester set to kick in on March 1, President Obama and his Democrat allies are hell-bent on shifting the conversation away from proper government cuts, and toward higher taxes. On Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) took to Fox News Sunday to explain that America does not have a spending problem. “It is almost a false argument to say that we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem,” Pelosi insisted.

Of course, Nancy Pelosi is only stating what we already know. President Obama point-blank told John Boehner that he was getting tired of hearing we had a spending problem, making it clear he did not believe that to be the case. This begs a question to be asked of the liberal Democrats. If they refuse to see how out of control government spending is destroying our country, how can they honestly negotiate an agreement to stop and repair said damage? The answer is simply a resounding, WE CAN’T! We can blame John Boehner for the lack of productive negotiations with the Democrats, I have done so myself, but in reality, how is he supposed to negotiate with an addict who refuses to admit they have a problem? More and more, I am convinced that this particular crop of Democrats can not be negotiated with.

Watch the video to see for yourself. If you are receiving the email newsletter and can not see the video, click-through to the post to view it. I still can’t believe she really admitted how she felt about spending.

    Well, she is right. We do have a deficit problem. What the liberals want to do is to keep giving America government programs until they can’t live without those programs. Then start paying for them (closing the deficits) by firtst taxing more the rich. When that is not enough, tax more the upper middle class. When that is not enough, start increasing taxes on all of the middle class. They will continue this until Americans are paying the level of taxes aas the citizen of Sweden pay, about 70%.

    It never occurs to them to increase revenues by doing things that might help the economy to grow.

  • People like Pelosi honestly believe, in their hearts, that more spending makes the economy grow. What Pelosi said here is just Liberal orthodoxy. The fact is it just shows how far out of touch she is – and why the “two sides” will never agree.

  • And they get all *butt hurt* when we call them Libtards…

  • Thanks for the link Larry! The first part of recovery is admitting that you have a problem and until that happens we will never see anything positive. Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have no intention of working with the Republicans to reduce spending, they only wish to increase taxes. At this point I see no reason why the Republicans should even try to negotiate with them, it is a losing cause and I say let the sequester take place at this point.

    • With the kind of attitudes we have seen on display from President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid, I would tend to agree with you. I see very little hope that we will ever be able to achieve real compromise with them. Unless the definition of compromise is to let the other side have everything they want, while making no concessions of themselves.

      Let the sequester begin.

  • I choked on my coffee when I read the title of this blog post. Saved my keyboard, though, by not spewing.

    The botox has migrated to Pelosi’s brain — or something.
