Pelosi: ‘Let’s see a package’

News

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi won't make any judgments. She just wants to see a package. Any package. But she hopes it's a "fuller package."

By the way, we're talking about a deficit-reduction package due out from the so-called supercommittee.

From The Hill:

"It's no use asking me about specific things until we see the whole package," Pelosi said Thursday during a press briefing in the Capitol. "I'm not making any judgment about any package until I see the fuller package that it's a part of."

Still, the California Democrat reiterated her party's insistence on a "balanced" deficit-reduction plan, suggesting that she and her caucus won't support a package that fails to spread the pain of austerity across a class spectrum.

"It's not fair to say to a senior, 'You're going to pay more for Social Security,' and we're not going to touch a hair on the head of the wealthiest people in our country," Pelosi said.

[...]

"Let's just see a package," she said. "Let's not … exclude anything."

Would someone please get Pelosi a package?
