The thing is, if you ask self-identified Republicans around the country whether it's a good idea to gut Social Security and Medicare to fund tax breaks for corporations and the super-rich, a heck of a lot of them will say no.

Basically, this is Pelosi's way of saying that she isn't slamming Republicans per se, but that at the moment, their political leadership is advocating things that most Americans -- regardless of party affiliation -- would despise if they understood.

We can debate the details, but I think that's pretty reasonable.
