Pelosi: ‘Nothing brings more money to the treasury’ than gov’t spending

Pelosi: ‘Nothing brings more money to the treasury’ than gov’t spending

[Ed. – Was once two heartbeats away from the presidency.]

PELOSI: “The challenges that I see is that there are those, it has been reported to me, there are those on the Republican side who have some unease in increasing the domestic budget because they know that they already had a big increase in the deficit in the tax bill and are reluctant to add any more investments for fear it would increase the education, fear it would increase the deficit. However, these investments in research and development, in really bring money to the ref so they help decrease it. In fact, I think most economists will tell you that nothing brings more money to the treasury than the investments in education, early childhood, K through 12, higher education, post grad, lifetime learning for our workers. In that spirit of saying you want more in defense, we’re respectful of that, we need more in domestic, hopefully you’ll be respectful of that.”
