In an interview with ThinkProgress, the worst Speaker in US history who brought the deficit from $162 billion to over $1.2 trillion lashed out at Republicans today.
Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Republicans were not interested in deficit reduction. Pelosi asserted that the purpose of the GOP obsession with deficits is to destroy government, or “the public space.”
From the video: Pelosi said the programs under attack include “education, clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety” and more. Pelosi concluded, “You name it, they’re there to diminish it, destroy it.”
This follows her comments from last week that Speaker Boehner had gone to “the darkside” by cutting spending.
