Pelosi on last day as Speaker: 'No Regrets' on Deficit and Debt Tuesday, January 04, 2011 By Nicholas Ballasy

(CNSNews.com) - When asked if she regrets not using the last two years with a Democrat controlled Congress to do more about the national debt, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she has “no regrets,” adding that “deficit reduction” has been a “high priority” for the Democratic Congress.

Speaker Pelosi was asked, “Do you have regrets that you didn't use the 2 years that you had total Democratic control of government to focus more on jobs and especially the debt which we did not hear much at all from you?”

Pelosi, speaking on her last day as Speaker of the House, said, “No, we have no regrets. This House has over and over again sent to the Senate legislation for job creation, which the Republicans in the Senate held up. Deficit reduction has been a high priority for us, it is our mantra; pay as you go. Unfortunately, that will be changed now.”

She added, “This administration and this Congress inherited a near Depression. So, the initiatives that we took were positive for the American people. It’s not enough to save people from a Depression though – 9 and a half percent unemployment is intolerable and as long as we have that we have to continue to fight for job creation.”

I can’t believe that US politicians have always lied as easily as this crop of liberals do. This woman has the conscious of a lizard.

She's a vile, despicable, horrific person and represents the worst that the country has to offer. But don't underestimate her. She's incapable of being shamed. And she's resolute in her beliefs. She's also in a lunatic district where she cannot be defeated. Hugo Chavez could run in her district with a D beside his name and win a big majority of votes. Her district is a cesspool. Absolutely horrible and disgusting people whether rich or poor.

According to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury, the Democrat controlled 111th Congress added $3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29) to the national debt – more than the new debt accumulated by the first 100 Congresses combined.

The 110th Congress added the second largest amount to the national debt – $1.957 trillion while the 108th ($1.159 trillion in new debt) and 109th ($1.054 trillion in new debt), both controlled by Republicans, come in at third and fourth place among all U.S. Congresses in terms of accumulating debt.

We need to say this over and over again.

According to official debt figures published by the U.S. Treasury, the Democrat controlled 111th Congress added $3.22 trillion ($3,220,103,625,307.29) to the national debt – more than the new debt accumulated by the first 100 Congresses combined.

Notice how the article didn't say who controlled the 110th congress while the second largest addition to our debt was racked up. And then to point out that the Republicans controlled the 108th and 109th. That is why they lost the majority so the dems could control spending for the next four years but instead they stepped on the gas and spiraled us into despair and danger and then blamed it on Bush.

Almost...but not quite....makes me feel sorry for the TSA agent.

My bet? She charters a plane. She's got the bucks to handle it.

ROFLMAO! After creating an expensive new entitlement and adding almost a trillion dollars to our debt, she now says they were focused on “deficit reduction.”

Sure and Lyndon LaRouche is right the Queen Of England was a drug dealer!

Are you kidding? San Farn Nan tells lies that would make Bagdad Bob Blush!

I can only conclude she really believes her own lies. Not so long ago, that would get you admitted to a State Hospital; These days it will get you elected to congress!

Well Deary, at least we know that you’ll never ever be in charge of anything ever again and you and your party and your president are a laughing stock.
