Pelosi: ‘Many Members of the Republican Caucus Don’t Believe in Government’
By Penny Starr from CNS News
“There are many members in the Republican caucus who do not believe in government,” Pelosi said in an interview with NPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep. “And bless their hearts, they act upon their beliefs.
“So day to day, we vote here on issues that eliminate government initiatives for clean air, clean water, food safety, public safety, public education, public transportation, public housing, public health, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security.
“They don’t believe in a public role,” Pelosi said. “And if you don’t believe in a public role, then why do you even have to have taxes to pay for it? … They’re anti-government ideologues, and that’s what the speaker has to deal with.”
“And if you don’t believe in a public role, then why do you even have to have taxes to pay for it?”
You’re right, Nan. Let’s NOT have taxes!
