Nancy Pelosi: Which Side Are You On?
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi has openly expressed her support for a plan similar to that produced by the Simpson-Bowles deficit commission, a plan that would ultimately cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid benefits while protecting the wealthy from taxes.
It's gotten worse.
Pelosi now says she also favors keeping the Bush-Obama tax cuts in place for those with incomes up to $1 million. (President Obama has said he supports keeping the tax cuts only for those below $250,000.) The Pelosi proposal would lose billions in revenue and would likely mean additional massive cuts to human needs.
Tell Congresswoman Pelosi that we will never allow the stripping of our safety net to protect the wealthy from taxes.
