I don't want to spend too much time on the Catfood Commission guys but Pelosi's response to their proposal was one for the archives:
This proposal is simply unacceptable. Any final proposal from the Commission should do what is right for our children and grandchildren’s economic security as well as for our nation’s fiscal security, and it must do what is right for our seniors, who are counting on the bedrock promises of Social Security and Medicare. And it must strengthen America’s middle class families–under siege for the last decade, and unable to withstand further encroachment on their economic security.Maybe it's just selective memory but I swear, I've seen more attention paid to Pelosi in the last week than I have in the last six years. It's about time. Yeah I remember she made made some irritating tradeoffs. She's not perfect, but she's probably the best establishment leader we can reasonably hope to have.
