Pelosi: Nah, we really don’t have a spending problem

Some of you might call this delusion but don’t be misguided. It’s a willful attempt to deceive the American people, to counter the Republican message that we do have spending problem:

    Where’s the budget Nancy? Its been an ENTIRE Presidential term.

  • Conniption Fitz

    We can always depend on Nanny Botoxilosi to say the exact opposite of the truth.

    • RocklinConservative

      Pretty consistently you can take about anything a lib says as the absolute opposite of reality.

      • Don

        The truth to a liberal is what they want it to be and not facts based on reality. The saddest part they are indocrinating their base to believe what they are saying without any regards for the truth whatsoever. Like a democratic caampaign manager said,” The truth is what you can make the American public to believe, nothing more.” Right now they believe their democratic leaders and truth be damned.

  • NanNJ

    Please Pelosi Family– Take this women home and let her enjoy her grandchildren. She is so out of touch with reality, she is dangerous.

    • Oh believe me…..she has a very good grasp on reality. It’s just not our reality but that of a full blown government take over.

      • sDee

        And she intends that those grandchildren and great grandchildren will be well pegged into the elites and their ruling class – have no doubt about that.

      • sjmom

        Actually, I don’t think she does and am beginning to wonder about her mental accuity.

    • OneThinDime

      She is much to out of it to be around children…nice retirement in the ME might be better for those grand kids.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Now that’s a compassionate plea I can get behind!

  • Diogenes_wy

    Just another inane rant from a LaLa Land crapweasel.

  • Ray

    She is a stupid, stupid woman. She throws wet dog poop at the wall to see if it will stick. She also stated that welfare checks will help the economy.

    • warpmine

      As so many have said, she’s not stupid but her constituents are box of rocks stupid and that’s the problem. The lamestream has her back so she can lie with impunity.

    • sDee

      Not so stupid

      Pelosis net worth went from $21.7 million to $35.2 million in 2010 alone.

      Her net worth is now estimated between $58 million and $88 million

      • Ray

        Didn’t she, like Kerry, marry into it?

        • sDee

          Knowing where the treasure is buried makes for easy digging for their spouses

          • Ray

            any old hag can say, “I am for gay marriage and abortion” and get elected in some parts of the country! P Lo is my example.

        • Don

          Nancy, like Kerry, does not have the brains to create. Kerry is on his second rich widow, just like his father married into it. Kerry, like Obama, has never had a real job. The only reason he put himself n for three (3) Purple Hearts in Nam, without spilling a drop of blood, was because that was a mandate for getting returned to the states. Word was he was out of Nam before the ink was dried on the third one.

          • Conniption Fitz

            Viet Nam, like Afghanistan, was a politician’s war. An unwinnable war to enrich the arms manufacturers.

  • tinlizzieowner

    “Pelsoi: Nah, we really don’t have a spending problem”

    No Tuna Fish Queen, you don’t. Unless to comes to spending your money. Remember when you voted against a minimum wage increase in American Samoa where one of your Star Kist plants is located. 😉 😉
    Hypocrite Twit.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    She’s willfully participating in bankrupting this country. And she can cut out the crap about cuts in spending hurting the economic recovery!!!! She’s so full of it!!!!!! Disgusting and dishonest!!!!!!

  • DCGere

    And the low information voters will believe everything she says.

  • aposematic

    Just another day in the Democrat’s fantasy land of lies to keep the braindead gullible fools deceived.

  • martha chandler

    Here’s my question, why isn’t this woman in a nursing home? I know they keep electing her in SF (why I can’t understand), but she’s will past the sell by date. She needs to go.

  • warpmine

    She’s right, we don’t have a spending problem we have a treason problem and it’s laced throughout the government. Vanquish all of them and we have a chance at Liberty.

  • TLaMana

    No, we don’t have a problem spending other peoples money…

  • PapaLouie

    “So, it isn’t as much of a spending problem as it is a priorities [problem], and that’s what a budget is, setting priorities.”

    Is Pelosi admitting here that Democrats are the problem? After all, Democrats refuse to set spending priorities and have not passed a budget in over four years. I love it when Democrats go on TV and condemn themselves.

  • The budget sequester is one promise that Obama needs to keep.

  • As long as the debit card issued by China still gives money, nahh we don’t got no spending problem!

  • 57thunderbird

    We don’t have a spending problem.We just need to steal more of the peoples hard earned dollars.

    The botox is leaking into her brain.SanFranFreakshow sure knows how to pick em.

  • tshtsh

    b.o. said via washington post that pelosi will be speaker soon. Guess he does not need the pen anymore (executive orders) now he can snap his fingers and the wuss will roll over.

  • mentally sick witch which ALSO said that unemployment money stimulates economy….
    RNC, make her unemployed…let’s see how she will stimulate the economy.
    Let ‘er show it to us.
    Same goes for Reids, Schumers, and other jokers there

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi: Spending cuts hinder growth.

    At 11:40 Pelosi says We avow the first amendment when talking about gun control.

  • repubboy

    this woman is an idiot.. we are broke.. and we don’t have a spending problem she’s correct I don’t have a spending problem but they do, every damn one of them republicrat and democrat all the same.. They love spending other peoples money ! This BS has got to stop NOW !

    What the heck! Scoop, are you nostalgic for the pre-2011 sessions of Congress.

    Do I really have to watch? Can’t I just brush my teeth and go to bed.


    Ok… watched it. I’ll need a shower to go with it as well.

    Pelosi … and that’s what a budget is… setting priorities

    and you’ve had a lot of experience with budgets there have you Nancy? Please tell us about all those budgets you have worked with. We’re listening. Just like your boss…we’re all ears…

    Bill Wallace! Must be a new guy in the media. Never seen him before.

  • aZjimbo

    We have a lack of brains problem. Hello nancy. Anyone home?

  • white531

    Can you imagine, for even a moment, that this one demented woman, who together with her husband, is a billionaire because of insider trading and all the other privileges that go with the office. Her brain is simply a cash register. Whatever decisions she has to make in an average day, are based on one question, and one question only. “How can I make money on this, and look good while doing it?”

    “Because the Idiots I represent, will believe anything I say at this point!”

    Operating with no brain that is perceptible to most of us, this one woman has such an incredible influence on the way millions of Americans live, and will live, in the coming decade.

    This one horrible mistake that we, as Americans made, will haunt us for a good number of years into the immediate future that we face. Right alongside the nightmare we call, “Obama.”

    I guess you could consider her as an example of where we went wrong. Along with her partner in crime, Harry Reid. Another disgusting human being, if there ever was one.

    This ridiculous woman, who is so close to the Presidency of The United States that I can’t believe it, is what some call American leadership. A person who spends a large part of her ill-gained profits, on plastic surgery.

    Someone the Founders would discard on face value, is actually considered one of our finest leaders, by the millions among us, who hope the Federal Government will come up with even more programs to support them, so they don’t have to work for a living, like the rest of us.

    We have one chance in three, of rescuing this great nation from people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Obama. I would even add to that Illustrious group, Marco Rubio.

    Because Marco Rubio is what I would call, “the next phase.”

    You think this country has seen destruction of our Christian values and basic Christian principles?

    All you have seen, so far, is the prelude to the Movie.

    This is just the Intermission. Go get your popcorn and drinks, and get ready for what’s coming.

    • clockwindingdown

      There really should be phycology tests done on these people, political representatives, before and during their term in office, with the test results made public.

      I have no doubt that the test results would be very interesting an enlightening as to their thoughts process’ and personality disorders.

      We would also see a high number of functioning idiots within this subject group, but then we already knew that…

      • notsofastthere

        My fear is that anyone testing Nancy would come down with Stockholm Syndrome. She is capable of driving anyone nuts!

  • sjmom

    Ms. Pelosi’s lack of common sense astounds me and each time I hear her speak I shake my head knowing she’s in Congress and responsible for our nation’s future.

    • white531

      At one point, she was third in line for the Presidency.

      • sjmom

        May God save us from the enemy within.

      • notsofastthere

        Look on the bright side of life. Biden is still next in line.
        Jihadists have to be laughing so hard that they peed on themselves.

  • stage9

    It doesn’t matter if she’s delusional or lying, it only matters if the American people buy it. And based on the last election results, they do.

  • People in totally safe districts are always the ones they send to make the batsh*t crazy statements for the media.

    Which is something to bear in mind for our “totally safe” Republicans as well. (Ron Paul comes to mind.)

  • clockwindingdown

    She is correct, we do not have a spending problem, what we have is a, “too much spending problem”. She and her crowd have no problem spending at all, they have done it to the tune of over 16.5 trillion USD with liabilities pushing over 90 trillion.

    Also her argument of investing in education has not worked. All it has done is created millions of college students and graduates so deep in debt they are virtually slaves to loans. Investing in K-12 also has not worked, it has mostly gone in to new buildings and support staff that are unionized, not the education of the kids.

    It’s funny to hear talk about “growth with jobs and thats where real revenue comes from”, she has that part right, we all know this, Reagan prove this, but then she goes on to talk about education and things that simply do not create jobs. Jobs are created by economic freedom, all the education in the world does not create a job.

    When regulations make it impossible to do business or make a profit there is no money to hire anyone, therefore no jobs… People can be trained to do many jobs on the job, without higher education needed. More people working with extra money in their pockets creates more jobs, simple, no brainer, you have money you can spend it, you don’t have money you cannot spend it. When more people have money and can spend it then more jobs are created for people to spend their money, and the cycle repeats itself, more people work, creating more opportunities.

    They believe their own lies, they do not live in the real world where performance is required to maintain employment. They believe in unions for job security, not in ability and performance. Their fallacy is what they are trying hard to make a reality for everyone. It is what makes for mediocre lives and standards of living, its what makes countries fail, people fail. It is why people left other countries, and came to America to get away from!

    • Conniption Fitz

      We the people don’t have a spending problem, but Washington has an OBSCENE spending problem.

      • clockwindingdown

        You are correct, our politicians have an over spending problem, and we need to point out “they have the problem”. We also need to point out they do not have an open invitation to our pocket books!

  • We so need term limits.

    • white531

      Yes, we do. I don’t see you here of late. I miss you. You must be busy.

      • I’ve missed you too! But I was on the busy thread yesterday and the night before. It was just so busy we didn’t see each other there. And I have been busy elsewhere. I hope I can be on more this week, but lots to do at home right now.
        Hope you have a Blessed week whitefriend!! 🙂

        • white531

          If I have a blessed week, it might perhaps be because I am blessed by friends like you.

          I don’t know about you, but I believe one of the great things about Scoop, is the wonderful people we meet here.

          Without question, you are one of those delightful persons. 🙂

          I don’t really remember having an affection for Ducks, that I recall. I guess it’s something that sort of sneaks up on you, when you aren’t paying attention. 🙂

          Ducks and Colliemum’s attack dog. Are these the things to occupy my dreams now?

          It is a real pleasure to me, to realize that most of us are just normal people, looking only to take pleasure in life, and enjoy each other.

          Why do so many others, want to get in the way of that basic human emotion?

          One of life’s mysteries, I guess.

          • I just hope you’re not dreaming of colliemum’s wolfies chasing duckie!! LOL!
            You’re sweet whitefriend- but then again, you knew that already!

            I agree. We all might have our moments here when we disagree or get a little hot under the collar, but we are still so much like a family- only more so. 🙂

    Frightful Nancy, go away.

  • Sandra123456

    We need more Ben Carsons, and less people like Nancy Pelosi in Congress. The only way we can give the Ben Carsons a chance is with Term Limits.

    Get citizens in Congress and out of Congress before power goes to their head and they suffer from Iknowbetterthanyou disease.

    • white531

      You know Sandra, there are millions of people in this country, who are just like Doctor Ben. They may not have his education, or his background, but they have the moral fiber that it takes to be a strong American.

      You would be surprised to know how very few of those kinds of people it would take to take our country back, if enough of those kinds of people were in the right places in our society. They would have you believe otherwise, but in reality, it would not take very many of us.

  • Ray

    Ok, all of you who doubted me on her stupidity, she actually had a staffer put this out, “The Senators feel the best course of action is to remove all weapons from law enforcement and private citizens so no one else gets hurt,” said a Senate communications intern. “When the gunman realizes that nobody else is armed, he will lay down his weapons and turn himself in…. that’s just human nature.”

    If I were her neurologist, I would have to conclude she is brain dead.

    • white531

      And you need a neurologist to tell you that? I believe you said it pretty well, yourself.

    • Jaels_Song

      If I were her dietitian, I would conclude that she is a ‘foolish vegetable.’

  • Funny. Previously, she said unemployment monies were the key to unlocking the economic boom. This idiot doesn’t know her ass from a hole in the ground, unless its making her more money, and the only thing dumber than a Pelosi is the dumbass that continually votes for one.

    Senile idiot.

    How on earth does she keep getting re-elected????? .. What on earth is in the water and air in California that would make the people out there vote for her???? Remember … this is also comming from one of the richest congressmen … She is worth a fortune … Erregant Rich Leftest!!!!!!!!!!

  • LiveFreeOrDie2012

    The Leftists truly believe there is not a deficit problem. They do this by claiming that all we need to do is get the deficits back to a ratio of Debt-to-GDP of 3% or less. Of course, this ignores reality, whereby we are going to face major problems just paying the interest on debt we have already accumulated when interest rates increase or normalize.

  • white531

    This is the woman who said, “we have to pass this bill, so you can see what’s in it.”

    I guess it would have been blasphemy, to say, “no, let’s see what’s in it, before we pass it.”

    What a horrible human being to be leading this country.

    • clockwindingdown

      It is amazing how the mouth can keep speaking after the brain has been clinically dead for so many years.

      Must have something to do with a “Botox affect” on the cognitive and disconnecting of what would be normal bodily function between the brain, mouth and larynx.

      Much in the way a rattlesnake’s head will continue to bite long after the head is separated from the body.

      Example A:

  • Rocco11

    Obama, Reid, and Pelosi are the perfect storm of idiocy.

  • Jay

    She gts another facelift she’s gonna have two more cheeks to powder and a beard to comb.

  • She keeps repeating the “oil subsidy” lie. There are no subsidies for oil companies, just the same deductions afforded any business. This lie is perpetuated to incite anger in the uninformed voters. The ends justify the means. Pathetic and despicable.

  • syvyn11

    She has a botox problem.

    and she doesn’t have a botox problem either…

  • bobemakk

    What can we expect from the “fried brain” Pelosi, she should retire. She’s an Obama cronie that is why she repeated what Obama said. Obamas impeachment is on the horizon.

  • c4pfan

    The GOP must agree, because they haven’t cut one program either.

  • mikeinidaho

    The lies of the communists are not surprising and will be believed by the “takers” in this country. We the People know better and it is our duty to spread the truth as best we can. The lies will be exposed as the “takers” see that there are no longer enough “providers” to supply their needs. That’s when the trouble begins, the riots start and war ensues. Store up food, fuel and ammo for the coming Second American Revolution. Pray for help and educate others.

  • Attn Ms Pelosi, aka delusional indoctrinated useful Obamcratic marxist idiot-

    “The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be filled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome be bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance”
    Marcus Tullius Cicero, 55 BC- Roman Statesman, Orator, and Philosopher

    “Those who steal from private individuals spend their lives in stocks and chains; those who steal from the public treasury go dressed in gold and purple.”
    Marcus Porcius Cato, 55 BC – Roman Statesman, Orator, and Philosopher

    “A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”
    Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman Orator – 106-43 B.C.

  • InterestedintheTruth

    I would like to see even one commenter make the effort to put of a few articulated, well though out,  civil, cited argument defending the reason why you disagree with Ms. Pelosi. I would really like to know why she is wrong. Why is education not an investment into our future? Why is the timing of taxations and cuts not important? How do jobs not bring in revenue through taxes? I sincerely would like to know.
