Congress - Nancy Pelosi

[9/22/13] | Rep. Nancy Pelosi on the debt ceiling - "There's no more cuts to make"

CROWLEY: But again, I just have to point out that President Clinton, President Bush, President Reagan, and this president have all negotiated the debt ceiling and given up something for that. So, why now
PELOSI: Because the coverage is there. There’s no more cuts to make. It’s really important that people understand that. We all want to reduce the deficit. Remember this, President Obama, when he became president, he said I’m going to cut the deficit in half in four years. He did it in four years and three months.

[2/26/10] "Mr. Camp, you said that the Medicare cuts in this bill cut benefits for seniors; they do not."

PELOSI: Mr. Camp -- Mr. Camp, you said that the Medicare cuts in this bill cut benefits for seniors; they do not. They do not. So I want the record to show, just in those two cases, where we may have differences of opinion and of approach and evaluation of the value of different things, but certain things are facts about our bills that I cannot let the opposite view stand when they are stated. Yes, it's hard to do this. The misrepresentation campaign that has gone on about these bills, it's a wonder anybody would support them, as Mr. Waxman said. But the fact is this, the President said many of these provisions on their own are largely supported by the American people.

[2/26/10] "There is no public funding of abortion in these bills."

PELOSI: I think it's really important to note, though, and I want the record to show -- because two statements were made here that are not factual in relationship to these bills. My colleague, Mr. -- Leader Boehner, the law of the land is there is no public funding of abortion and there is no public funding of abortion in these bills. And I don't want our listeners or viewers to get the wrong impression from what you said.

[2/25/10] "It (the health bill) will create 4 million jobs -- 400,000 jobs almost immediately."

PELOSI: So this bill is not only about the health security of America. It's about jobs. In its life it (the health bill) will create 4 million jobs -- 400,000 jobs almost immediately; jobs, again, in the health care industry, but in the entrepreneurial world as well.
