As Republicans and Democrats scramble to find a last-minute solution to raising the debt-ceiling before a federal government shutdown, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi didn’t hold back on her true feelings about the possible deal; equating the GOP proposal with eating a “bowl” of dog feces.
Pelosi was fielding questions from journalists during a press briefing Thursday when she launched into her disgusting rant regarding the debt-ceiling deal, saying the GOP proposal was like putting a cherry on top of a “bowl of doggy doo.”
“As I said to you, this is like giving you a bowl of doggie doo, putting a cherry on top, and calling it a chocolate sundae. This is nothing. CHIP should’ve been done in September first of all. Second of all, we wanted ten years. We wanted permanent CHIP, which by the way, saves six billion dollars,” said Pelosi.
“The Republicans rejected that, even just on the terms of CHIP, they rejected the ten years saving six billion dollars. Doing it for six years saves one billion, and that’s good. Doing it ten years and saving six billion dollars is better,” added the House Minority Leader.
