By JAVIER MANJARRESIf I told you that Democratic Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democratic caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives were a bunch of hypocrites, would you believe me?
Pelosi has just stated that Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner, would rather pay the country’s debt to China before we pay our military. Pelosi is inferring that because of the sequester, there have been deep military cuts that have been affected military personnel, and rather pay our troops first, Boehner would rather pay the Chinese debt.
The ‘former’ Speaker of the House, seems to have had a lapse in memory, as she has forgotten that this sequester was devised, and allowed to occur by President Barack Obama.
This is not the first time Pelosi makes such an allegation about Republicans preferring to pay down the Chinese debt instead of supporting American interests. I though Pelosi was all about honoring our debt?
“I’ve heard some on the other side say we should pay the Chinese government before we send out a Social Security check,” Pelosi said, even as she argued that leaders need to worry about reaching a debt agreement before focusing on who gets hurt if they don’t.
“We do have to honor our debt,” Pelosi said. “But we have to fight very hard to make sure we don’t have to make those kind of choices.-Huffington Post
