    Is there anyone in politics today who has done more damage to the US economy… With the exception of Barack Obama?

    Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, the worst Speaker in US history, says the next deficit deal must include more tax hikes?

    Pushing back against the Republicans’ deficit-reduction strategy, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said this weekend that more tax revenues – not just spending cuts – must be a part of Congress’s effort to rein in deficits.

    Pelosi said the tax hikes in the recent “fiscal-cliff” deal are a start, but don’t go far enough to generate the revenues the government needs to run the country effectively.
