Does millionaire Pelosi want to pay more taxes?
One of President Barack Obama's (D) reviled multi, multi millionaires effusively praised the Illegally Occupying and Trespassing Useful Idiots, otherwise known as Occupy Wall Street (OWS), on Wall Street and across the country, gurgling
"God bless them for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, and it's focused. And it's going to be effective."
"The message of the protesters is a message for the establishment everyplace," she added, "No longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street."
And who is this multi millionaire gushing over this planned spontaneity, the unfocused focused babblings of the front group's childish participants? Why, none other than Rep Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the first--and only--female minority leader for the Democratic dominated House from 2008-2010; the multimillionaire, who is definitely not middle income, who previously stated that unemployment benefits create jobs, not tax cuts.
"Unemployment insurance, the economists tell us, return $2 for every $1 that is put out there for unemployment insurance," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on the House floor.
"It injects demand into the economy, it creates jobs to help reduce the deficit," Pelosi said.
Pelosi says "history shows" tax cuts do not create jobs. "It does not create jobs. I mention this because this is the context in which we bring up this tax cut for middle-income families in America today," she said.
While presiding over the worst unemployment since the Depression, while millions of Americans' net worth significantly plummeted this "one per center" luxuriated as her wealth rose
62 percent last year, cementing her status as one of the wealthiest members of Congress.
Pelosi was worth at least $35.2 million in the 2010 calendar year, according to a financial disclosure report released Wednesday. She reported a minimum of $43.4 million in assets and about $8.2 milion in liabilities.
For 2009, Pelosi reported a minimum net worth of $21.7 million.
And how many tax loopholes did her family utilize to attain this elite wealth status? How many nasty bankers helped her? Were there any conflicts of interest when she voted, votes and will vote on closing any of these perks to enable Obama's tax increases for millionaires and billionaires?
Or, because she is not quite so young, will she be very focused, very unspontaneous and listen to the "message for the establishment everyplace" and raise her own taxes to pay off the deficit she so actively helped create? It would be effective.
