Pelosi's Latest on Repealing Bush Tax Cuts

Posted: Jan 18, 2009 9:41 AM
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi once again emphasized her willingness to repeal the Bush tax cuts before they expire this morning on Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace.

"I don't want them to wait two years to expire," she said. "Because they have to prove their worth to me as to how they grow the economy, how they create jobs."

She dodged questions on bringing the Employee Free Choice Act up for a vote, said she didn't think it'd take very long to close Guantanamo Bay and that she still supports investigating the Bush Administration, although it might not be the best use of Congress's time.

"We have a contempt of congress against members of the executive branch who withheld information from us on that subject and that was reinforced the first day of this new congress," she said. "So I think you look at each item and see what is a violation of the law and do we even have a right to ignore it and other things that are maybe time spent better looking to the future rather than to the past."
