Pelosi: “I wish people would earn more so they can pay more” income taxes

Via the Daily Caller, this is Nancy Pelosi yesterday on Capital Hill answering a question regarding the 50% or so of American taxpayers who don’t owe federal income taxes.

After pointing out that no worker escapes the payroll tax (a fun reminder), Pelosi said she wished those 50% would earn more because it would mean they’d start actually paying income tax.

Then they’d be true patriots, I guess.
