Pelosi: Tax Hikes Must Be Part of Next Deficit Deal (Video)

Is there anyone in politics today who has done more damage to the US economy… With the exception of Barack Obama?

Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, the worst Speaker in US history, says the next deficit deal must include more tax hikes?

The Hill reported:

Pushing back against the Republicans’ deficit-reduction strategy, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this weekend that more tax revenues – not just spending cuts – must be a part of Congress’s effort to rein in deficits.

Pelosi said the tax hikes in the recent “fiscal-cliff” deal are a start, but don’t go far enough to generate the revenues the government needs to run the country effectively.

    they’re progressive redistributionists and they’re coming for the middle class…the rich could pay 100% tax rate and it will never cover obama’s spending increases, much less what he started with.

    “effectively” would be the key word there Nancy.

    If he didn’t just retire I would say Barney Frank.

    I wish Pelosi would have a fatal stroke.

    …says the next deficit deal must include more tax hikes?

    Come on now. This isn’t a surprise, is it?

    The “fiscal cliff” agreement was the camel’s-nose-in-the-tent. With the next “deal” the objective will be getting more of the camel’s large torso inside.

    Note to Republicans: See what happens with the compromising? Keep on doing it, repeatedly, and you’ll discover at some point that the whole animal is inside the tent.

    Tax the dummasscrats and Im fine with it. Meawhile cut taxes on Republicans.

    That seems fair… They voted for it.

    Love how Madam Pelosi visualizes tax hikes as ” CLAWING DOWN ” into the middle class…. as she closes her spell casting fingers into a tightly clenched fist.

    its the incremental enslavement of the working by the political class.

    “the power to tax is the power to tyrannize” and we are definately governed by tyrants.

    if we don’t take our money back from the politicans we will never regain our freedom. its the weapon they use to enslave us.

    Once again. We need to tax wealth. Pelosi, et al, have their millions and they are not suggesting taxing the wealth they have accumulated. Plus, we have a spending problem which no one in DC seems to want to address. I cannot believe that each government agency cannot even have their budgets cut by 5%, to start. This whole dog and pony show is getting tiresome. Which is probably why they keep bringing it out. They’re hoping we’ll tire and just give up. Well, I won’t give up. As a matter of fact, 20% on their total wealth would be fair and finally make them have some “skin in the game.” Right now they are wanting to punish those who work hard and are trying to keep their businesses afloat. The long-term goal of these progs is to decimate the private sector thereby giving them more power and more control over the peons.

    Why do the unimpressive, inept, corrupt Clowns in the Marbled Monument to Murphy’s Law always speak of ‘the rich’ yet never once mention themselves? How many millionaires are now ‘fighting for their “District’s People”‘ but always seem to bypass most of the self-same taxes imposed upon a beleagured, embattled populace???

    Here’s an idea: Why not refuse to pay Income Taxes until the ‘Representative’ and ‘Senator’ at ALL levels of government publically submit THEIR tax returns???

    I think it’s past time to start keeping our money in our state and tell the feds to shove it. If we had control of our own hard-earned dollars, we could take care of our people much better than a top heavy federal bureaucracy whose only purpose is to demonize those who work hard and take every dime they can get their greedy hands on. Those who want to live off the government can move to the states who are willing to support parasites. Those states who do not want a dependent class forever leeching on the productive, can cut them off.

    I say, “Bravo!” Yep. Increase taxes. Let’s start with ASSET taxes. Instead of taxing income…tax assets of politicians.

    Actually, since the voters voted in the Democrats…lets give them what they want. Raise taxes. Let the American public pay for what they want. Stupidity SHOULD hurt.

  • bigkahuna

    Did you hear that botox filled skank… See how much more revenue we can get!!!

    I say lets see how much spending we can cut. I say start with 20% across the board.

    Oh by the way Nancy. STFU you biotch

    Look, there are taxes we should be for and quit being the Party of Stupid. Repeal the Hollywood tax cuts and hit them with a 40% surtax. This is the finance machine of the Democrats. They just had record numbers, now is the time to hit them hard. Also eliminate the tax deduction on additional homes, and tax municipal bonds. These are the areas where the liberals hide their wealth. I’m sure there are other areas like cable companies that should pay their fair share, but requiring ala carte programming would do more to help the Republicans than anything they could possibly do. We are funding through our cable rates huge numbers of liberals and their programming that could not exist without forced cable bundling. Think MSNBC as one example.

    Agreed we tax politicians double what the average citizen is in the same tax bracket. They screw us over and we screw them and show them congress is not a career.

    Pelosi means… “run the country their way”

    More “cow bell”

    With Democrats, it’s never about having any spending discipline. Their signature song is that old tune by Andrea True Connection, “More, more, more”, that explains in abbreviated clarity their approach to spending, taxation, and the national debt.
