Pelosi on Americans not paying income tax: I wish they would earn more so they can pay more [VIDEO] By Nicholas Ballasy 3:04 PM 04/20/2012
Addressing the percentage of taxpayers who do not pay any income tax, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said these Americans have skin in the game since they pay payroll taxes, adding, I wish they would earn more so they can pay more.
Well, you know, they do pay taxes. They pay payroll taxes. And this is a tactic that the other side uses to make it sound as if these people are not paying taxes. They are paying taxes. They do have skin in the game. And I think that that should be respected, said Pelosi at the Capitol Thursday.
I wish they would earn more so they can pay more, and thats what were about, the creation of good-paying jobs in our country that contribute to our international competitiveness to keep America number one.

She has botox on the brain.
Pelosi needs to understand the old saying “We work so we can live. We don’t live so we can work.” That goes for taxes also.
This woman is a complete loon.
For a moment, I thought, from the title, this was one of John Semmens’ semi-news/semi-satire pieces. You really can’t make this stuff up.

GOD help America, if some so called “Americans” continue to vote in blithering idiots like this broad!
Hey....those taxpayer funded bar tabs aren't cheap (puke)
This is the typical gold fish brained logic of liberals, without any concept of what a canibal act is, ie: of snake eats own tail and wishes it had more tail to eat more of it.
Their ponzi policies of minimum wage and social security is based on that.
That being said, well, duh, Pelosi. Ie, however, when the tax rate goes down, production does go up and revenues to the state increase.
Yep, everyday she looks more and more like a blow up doll full of air.
It used to boggle my mind how such losers could get elected ... until I finally realized that there really is no democratic party anymore; just a bunch of snot-nosed incompetents hell-bent on exploiting the poverty they create. And as long as they are successful in both, they will retain power.
The US tax system:
1) The Federal Reserve controls the value of our money.
2) We are taxed based upon the number of dollars we earn.
To maintain our standard of living is to enable the government to take more of our money. Time to embrace poverty.
My reaction is a mirror image of Pelosi's: I wish she would spend less so that we (including our children and grandchildren) could pay less.
It’s a district incorporating all of San Francisco.
Hardly “Americans” as you or I would define the term.
I meant she’s crazy as a loon. LOL
“Yep, everyday she looks more and more like a blow up doll full of air.”
Yeah, except who would poke it.
If Nan was so worried, she’d turn over her entire paycheck to help out the tax situtation.

With all her treadwear and rust, I thought Pelosi finally got turned in when “cash for clunkers” was going on.
