Differing Views

House Speaker John Boehner: “This debt is also a moral threat to our country. In my opinion, it is immoral to rob our children and grandchildren’s futures and leave them beholden to countries around the world that buy our debt.”

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi: “I have heard our colleagues say that the budget deficit is immoral. It’s been immoral for the eight years of the Bush administration. I didn’t hear anybody say ‘boo’ while we were giving tax cuts to the rich, having two wars unpaid for and giving a prescription drug bill to the private sector.”
