Pelosi: ‘Anonymous’ Republican told her GOP ‘indifferent’ to poor starving children

During House Minority Nancy Pelosi’s address at the 2014 California Democrats State Convention on Saturday in Los Angeles, she told a story about an unnamed House Republican telling her the GOP does not care about hungry children in America. Pelosi claimed the unnamed “friend” called the poor and hungry “invisible”. Pelosi used that same exact same rhetoric in early February at her weekly press briefing only then instead of friend it was the rock band U2 that gave her the “invisible” line…

Pelosi on Saturday: “I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital lifelines for struggling families and really hungry children. This colleague response was telling in its blunt nature and it’s stunning in its honestly, what he said was to the Republican caucus these people you are talking about, are invisible, and the republican caucus is indifferent to them.”
