Speaker Of House Pelosi - Taking Country In New Direction
In these first 8-months of 2010 more jobs will have been created than in the 8-years of the Bush Administration and when people paid their taxes in April they paid at the lowest rate since the 1950's.. We are taking our country on a path of fiscal soundness”. Referring to a statement by John Boehner that the bill was like using a nuclear weapon on an ant Pelosi said “no surprise the Republicans oppose this calling it an ant”.
When asked about a vote on the war supplemental package she said the men and women on the ground will not be lacking in what they need. Pelosi also said Republicans have said they want to pay for the war by raising the age of retirement for seniors. "If they want to pay for the war, I think a good place to pay for it would be by repealing the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest people in our country." Pelosi said the Bush tax cuts did nothing to promote growth of the economy. Pelosi said unemployment insurance benefits paid to the unemployed is a stimulus to the economy and is job creating.
