You won’t believe what she said.
According to CNS News, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi embarrassed herself on air with host David Westin stating that she does not want to be a “thief.”
Westin asked Pelosi: “We hear Mitch McConnell say he will come forward with something next week. What is it going to take to get the two sides together to get something done? You have the school situation coming up soon, and you also have the Unemployment Insurance, which we’re really coming up within another couple of weeks.”
“In another couple of weeks that will expire,” Pelosi said. “I have no doubt they will come around. In the beginning they said, ‘No, we have spent enough money.’ Now, they’re at $1.3 trillion; that’s not enough. We have $3.4 trillion.”
“I am fond of quoting Saint Augustine,” she said, “1700 years ago, seventeen centuries ago, who said: ‘Any government that does not exist to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.’
“Well, we don’t want to be considered a bunch of thieves,” She added. “We want to promote justice. And in the long run, that makes it for everyone. In fact, in the short run, it does, as well.” You can read the full article here.
