Pelosi Says Cantor 'can't handle the truth'
Pelosi says Cantor 'can't handle the truth'

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday that debt ceiling talks were derailed in part by Republican leeriness over ending special interest tax deals.

The California congresswoman had particular scorn for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who last week pulled out of talks amid a flap with Democrats over taxes.

"Leader Cantor can't handle the truth when it comes to these tax subsidies for big oil, for corporations sending jobs overseas, for giving tax breaks to the wealthiest people in our country while they're asking seniors to pay more for less, as they abolish Medicare," Pelosi said on CNN's "State of the Union."

President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) this week are stepping into the debt ceiling morass with a series of high-level meetings aimed at working out a deal before an Aug. 2 deadline.

Pelosi said Republican determination to fix the deficit with tax cuts is a non-starter. "In the Bush years the Republicans said that tax cuts will produce jobs," she said. "They didn't. They produced a deficit."

4. They need to focus on those tax cuts during Bush.
And ask the question where are the jobs during that period?

5. The tax cuts didn't just produce a deficit -- they ruined the country.
While the Dems just sat by and let Bush rack up TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS by going to war in Iraq!!!

Bush racked up 8.3 TRILLION DOLLARS OF DEBT IN JUST 8 YEARS!!!!!
