Pelosi: No deal on fiscal cliff unless we raise taxes on the ‘rich’

Yes, she’s just the minority leader and considering Republicans control the House by a significant margin, her side of the aisle can’t do much except to pressure Republicans which is exactly what this is meant to do. But she does serve as a sort-of spokesperson for Democrats in the Senate, who have also vowed to accept no deal unless the rich are finally made to pay ‘their fair share‘ or something:

Once again I charge that Republicans should be more than willing to point out that Pelosi and her Democrat allies are willing to plunge this country over the ‘fiscal cliff’, which will adversely affect both the poor and the ‘middle class’, if their obsession with taxing the rich isn’t part of the deal. Another perfect opportunity to expose the radical ideology of the left and this class warfare tactics.
