Pelosi: GOP Debt Ceiling Plan Is An Unworthy Gimmick
SAHIL KAPUR 3:19 PM EST, FRIDAY JANUARY 18, 2013
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) criticized the House GOP's new debt ceiling proposal via a statement from her spokesman, Drew Hammill.
“We need a clean debt ceiling increase and a bipartisan and balanced budget that protects Medicare and Social Security, invests in the future, and responsibly reduces the deficit.
“This proposal does not relieve the uncertainty faced by small businesses, the markets and the middle class. This is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. The message from the American people is clear: no games, no default.”

3. Give in now to keep the "high ground". Are you series? In three months the
GOP asshats will have more leverage. Strike now.
I dont want Republicans to switch parties unless they switch their ideologies at the same time. “You can paint a turd and sell it as a tart, but it’s still a turd.”
