Nancy Pelosi: Math is hard

Nancy Pelosi thinks increasing taxes on people making over $250 thousand translates into a tax cut for “100 percent of the American people. It’s just that over $250,000, you don’t get the pie sweetened for you.”

At least, I think that's what she's saying. Here, you tell me:
“The fact is we’ve been very clear. President Obama has said it in his campaign and since then and in this campaign as well. The Democrats want to be — have fairness in our tax code; that we want to go forward with giving — having the tax cuts for those making over $250,000, a couple making over $250,000, to have those tax cuts expire,” said Pelosi on Thursday at the Capitol.

“What that is is a tax cut for 100 percent of the American people. It’s just that over $250,000, you don’t get the pie sweetened for you. And with that, to say when we go down that path and inject some more certainty into our economy and our fiscal soundness, we then go to the table, put everything on the table and talk about tax fairness, tax simplification. You cannot do it dribs and drabs. You have to do it comprehensively.”
Demented much, Nancy? Or did your larynx just come uncoupled from your...brain, to use a figure of speech?

Open pit mining for stupid.

I don't make over 250k, does that mean I'll get my pie sweetened?

And if I do, will Mayor Doomberg limit the amount of sweetener per pie?

And will Moochelle tell me to exercise more, to work it off?

Oh, and can I get blueberry pie?
It's my favorite.

Deborah Leigh said...Another thought. Math Pelosi style: If Nancy spend x dollars on botox each month how much will the taxpayers be billed?

Actually, no deeper than you'd have to go to find stupid, I think you could strip-mine.

Or maybe just grab a shovel.

Deborah Leigh said...Sorry folks. The thought spring is overflowing.

rinardman, how much was that towel that Moochie threw from the balcony the other day? And don't forget the $500.00 shoes and the $2000.00 sun dress.

Bless her heart, I suppose her momma never told her that drinking kills brain cells so she better stay away from the booze on account of she didn't have any spare brain cells in reserve.

Apparently for Mme Pelosi, drinking water is hazardous.

"fiscal soundness?" She thinks we're stupid.

Just think of all the people in the Bay Area who agree with her, think she's making sense and keep sending her back to Congress. *shudder*
