Pelosi: Revenues Must Be on Table
Posted at 12:55 p.m. on Oct. 30, 2013
President Barack Obama may be willing to accept a deal that replaces part of the sequester without revenue, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed the idea Wednesday.
“Our position is, we’re going to to the table in order to reduce the deficit, grow the economy, create jobs, end the sequester,” the California Democrat said at a weekly briefing with reporters. “Revenue needs to be on the table.
“You can’t just take a piece here, a piece there. It has to be comprehensive, and if you’re not going to have revenue, who is going to pay? Granny on Medicare?” she asked. “That’s not something that we can accept.”
