Press Releases Contact: Brendan Daly/Nadeam Elshami 202-226-7616 For Immediate Release 08/09/2010 Pelosi Statement on Republican Opposition to Jobs Bill
Washington, D.C. Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today in advance of tomorrows vote to create or save 310,000 American jobs preserving the jobs of teachers, nurses, firefighters, and police officers, and boosting the private sector and in response to Republican plans reiterated on the Sunday talk shows yesterday to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest few Americans and protect tax breaks for companies that ship jobs overseas:
Taking a page out of the failed Bush playbook, Congressional Republicans want to saddle future generations with nearly $700 billion in debt to extend tax cuts for the wealthiest few, while opposing a fully paid-for jobs bill that reduces the deficit and keeps teachers in the classroom and police officers on the beat. Instead, Congressional Republicans demean our educators and law enforcement officials as special interests and fight to protect a glaring loophole that encourages corporations to ship American jobs overseas.
Why wouldnt House Republicans want to keep 310,000 teachers, first responders and private sector workers on the job instead of on the unemployment lines?
Americas workers and families deserve better. Democrats are fighting for the middle class and working to create good-paying jobs here at home and keep America number one around the world.
Congressional Republicans promise to return to the exact same agenda that cost millions of Americans their jobs, homes, and life savings. We are moving our country forward. And we are not going back to the failed Bush policies that left us with deep deficits, a deep recession, and the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression.
Does somebody have a bucket of water to throw on this witch??
Pelosi, show us the bill that extends Bush's tax cuts for low and middle income? Without that, you are raising taxes on all income levels you pathetic lying old witch!!!

"Blah blah blah Bush's fault blah blah blah gotta support SEIU blah blah blah BLAH BLAH Blah. Blah Blah Blah spend more money spend more money blah blah blah."
She truly is nuts.
The sad fact is that the brainless imbeciles on the left lap this ‘shiite’ up.
Madam Speaker it is your party that took a mild recession after you captured the majority in 2006 and along with this failed President took us from “the ditch” and drove us right off a cliff into a bottomless and failed government spending!
I'd be interested to see a count of how many times that chorus is sung by the Party of Whine and Sleaze between now and election day.
She needs a bucket of SOMETHING poured over her!!!
I was thinking along the lines of The Wizard of Oz. :)
“.....teachers, first responders and private sector workers....”
Teachers (that don’t teach) and first responders are funded by local governments. Local governments are funded by the private sector.
As long as the federal government handcuffs the private sector, everything else will continue to fail.
Pelosi, as always, is an old and ugly lying bitch.
This is another DNC campaign slush fund bill. When are Repubs going to find some courage to say something?
