House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently made the statement that there is just nowhere else to cut from the federal government. She said people just need to know this. She also made the claim that, in his original campaign for office, President Obama promised to cut the federal deficit in half, and that he has now accomplished that.
She also said that the Republicans’ goal is to let Medicare and Social Security die on the vine. She also said that we need to pass Obamacare so we can find out what’s in it.
She wasn’t joking when she said these things – she was dead serious. This lady is one of the highest ranking Democrats in the legislative branch of our government, and she obviously must think she can get away with comments like this because the American people are stupid.
Come to think of it, maybe she’s right. Maybe we are stupid. After all, we are the ones doing the voting.
