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.

    …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.

  • donh

    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???

  • Sasja

    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

  • J. Knight

    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.

  • bigkahuna

    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”

  • ClinkinKY

    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.

    Hey, I’d write my Congresscritter (Flores – TX 17) an e-mail, but his Web site doesn’t recognize my home address as being part of his Barony!

    And what’s this “Reconnecting Congress to America” horse hockey?????

  • lliberty

    Since they raised taxes on the wealthy the last time, this next one is really going to hurt! I wonder if they’re all short the stock market already?

  • bigL

    Cancel all entertaiment related tax benefitsand an immediate 20% surcharge on every ticket fo rentertainment, Anything with a gun or RPG etc or rifle gets at 40% surcharge.All Roku and Apple Tv type venues also included

  • Repousa

    That’s the plan, keep spending until it bankrupts the country then let your unemployed dem voters start rioting in the streets because of mandatory austerity cuts. Then blame the taxpayer for not paying enough. Since the non taxpayer out votes the taxpayer, we will see tax rates like France.

  • shadow

    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.

    Interesting concept, considering that of the 32 states that get more money back than they pay in federal taxes, 24 of them voted for Romney. And of the 17 states that get back less that they send, 16 voted for Obama.

  • #25…thats a bogus arguement and you know it. having a military base or a government facility in your state is not federal aid. states like florida that have a large number of senior citizens that collect social security is consider federal aid by the people that came up with that arguement.
    what states get the most money from the federal government for the dole would be a more accurate meausure of which states are actually getting federal aid.

    Well Nancy Nincumpoop, if it’s not enough money then donate your illegal offshore stash to pay for it.

    Obama supporters shocked that when he said he would raise taxes it actually included them! How unfair!

    Number 11’s comment sound intriguing. Especially since so many on the left are in favor of abortion, how about they abort some of their wealth. Think of it as an early death tax… Pick a number, $10 million, $20 million, whatever the Obama’s had before they hit the lotto and moved to Washington…whatever. Anything over and above that amount, 55% goes to the Treasury. Oh, and no exceptions for anybody. No hiding behind some law. If there’s one thing we’ve learned everything ceases sooner or later, including GM. So no Foundations, Endowments or Trusts, for profit or non-profits get spared . Since they’re people now too (for campaign purposes) they can pony up as well. How can the left complain? They wanted and gave us all this new spending, now they can pay for it. Either that, or start whittling. And lastly, it’s a far more transparent and “fair” way than the garbage the Fed has been piling on these past five years. Wow, five years…time sure flies when you’re having fun…lol. Think of it, the government taking 55% of all that accumulated wealth now! Warren Buffet keeps complaining, so maybe for guys at his level, we should take 99%. I hope he would appreciate the symbolism and irony. That would make a pretty big dent and we might even be able to cut taxes on the middle class! Great idea #11…you should run for office!

    Tommy, once again you’re using facts in your argument, and shadow has absolutely no interest in the facts. Carefully manufactured talking points and propaganda are his bread and butter. If you continue to throw facts at him, he will just change the subject …

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    “…considering that of the 32 states that get more money back than they pay in federal taxes,…”

    Considering that the original comment was about states having an the option to choose whether to support or not support freeloaders, one has to wonder what the hell this blubbering was about.

    If I had anything left or were a gambler, I’d bet it all that Pelosi’s stocks would tank, assets gone and she would been among those of us who are going to be taxed by her scandalous backroom deals on taxes hikes and especially have the same health care the underlings will have,

    in other words I wish she had done to her what she has done to us.

    She is one of the most vindictive person in Washington.

    More than likely a paid troll … where do you think all that missing stimulus money went?

    I would love to be a fly on the wall the day Pelosi discovers her number is up and her version of Catholicism does NOT get her a free pass to Heaven.

    botox is food poisoning. Botox has to be revamped at least every 8 weeks. Pelosi has been taking botox in for AT LEAST 2 1/2 decades.

    Does no one else think there MIGHT be a connection between injecting botulism into your face for 25 years and insanity?

    It’s like we are back in the middle ages when women put face powder with lead on their faces or in the 1700s when they took laudanum and poisoned themselves to go to sleep.

    21st century proves that though our ‘potential’ for IQ has gone up, our actual use of it has spiraled dramatically.

  • Jeannie

    Tommy, the notion that the military, with volunteers that put their life on the line for ridiculously low compensation, might ACTUALLY be entitled to living quarters does not compute to people who from birth to death expected to have their personal income constantly supplemented by freeloading off our tax dollars.

  • Jerry C

    Piglosi doesn’t take Botox. She’s a Succubus. A female demon spawn from the pit of hell. Except without the beauty & charm.
