Pelosi: 'There's No Cuts to Make'
on Sun, 22 Sep 2013
Appearing on CNN’s State of the Union on Sunday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explained that there were no cuts left to make to a federal budget that runs in excess of $4 trillion each year. "The cupboard is bare," she said. "There’s no cuts to make." She claimed that everyone wanted to cut the deficit, but "you cannot have any more cuts just for the sake of cuts. Right now you’re taking trophies." She then labeled Republicans who have not funded Obamacare in the house "legislative arsonists." Pelosi attempted to drive a wedge between House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and the rest of the Republican caucus, stating, "I certainly don’t paint the spaker with that brush, but there are enough of them in their caucus to shut down the government. That would be a victory for them."
