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. Its 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.

When asked about blowing up the government she said she would do it all again.
One world for leftists and another world for everybody else.
Get lost, b!tch. Your day in the sun is over.
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.
I am shocked Soros didn’t kick her to the curb.
If there is a hell, I hope this evil witch burns in it for all eternity for what she and her cohorts have done to this country.
The moron should be in jail.
wow, the comedy never ends
hahahahaha.... when did they ever live up to 'paygo'??
Don’t let the screen door hit you in your non existent butt on the way out.
I’m so glad you posted that. Looks like Boehner wants a *partner*. I still can’t believe it.
Oh, she's got worse in store.
Starting tomorrow, she flies Commercial.
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.
She is a Socialist Revolutionary.
Would you expect different?
