Class act all the way.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., suggested that the sequestration fight is revealing that some of her colleagues in Congress are not “on Team America,” based on a comment made by Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Kan., [Pompeo served in the Army after graduating from West Point -ed.] that the sequester cuts are “a home run.”
“Democrats — we want solutions, Republicans want sequestration,” Pelosi said during her press briefing today. “Some of them have even called it a home run. That doesn’t sound like anybody on Team America if they think sequestration’s indiscriminate, mindless cuts across the board are a home run.”
Pompeo made his comment after the State of the Union. “It’s going to be a home run,” Pompeo told Politico. We are doing what the American people asked the US house t do in 2010 when I came here: we are reducing the size and scope of the federal government. I think the American people will have tremendous respect [for it]. I think the markets will respond very positively when we, for the first time, say ‘we have a spending reduction plan and we’re actually going to follow through on it.’”
