Nancy Pelosi Quotes First Woman Speaker Of the House

2004 Election

The Republicans did not have an election about jobs, health care, education, environment, national security. They had an election about wedge issues in out country. They exploited the loveliness of the American people, the devoutness of people of faith for a political end. Democrats are going to ban the Bible if they are elected. Imagine the ridiculousness of that, if it won votes for them. Nancy Pelosi,House Minority Leader http://www.prospect.org/web/page.ww?section=root&name=ViewWeb& articleId=8851

America

America must be a light to the world, not just a missile. Nancy Pelosi Source:www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/nancy_pelosi.html

Bankruptcy Bill

“This bankruptcy bill seeks to squeeze even more money for credit card companies from the most hard-pressed Americans. It would bind hardworking and honest Americans to credit card companies and other lenders as modern-day indentured servants. It is our duty to speak up for those who will be hurt by this bill. And this duty is paramount because we have been shut out of the legislative process to bring any amendments to the floor. Nancy Pelosi Source:http://www.allamericanpatriots.com/m-news+article+storyid-9329.html

Civil Liberties

America will be far safer if we reduce the chances of a terrorist attack in one of our cities than if we diminish the civil liberties of our own people. Nancy Pelosi Source:www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/nancy_pelosi.html

Democratic Priorities

Democratic priorities are clear: we will fight to get the economy back on track, we will create jobs, and we will help unemployed workers. Nancy Pelosi Source:Source:http://democraticleader.house.gov/press/ releases.cfm?pressReleaseID=579

Tom Delay

"Tom DeLay proved this morning that he is not only unethical, but delusional. No amount of mud slinging can hide the fact that Mr. DeLay has repeatedly abused his power. Over the years, this has resulted in four rebukes by the Ethics Committee -- including two rebukes last month that were a direct result of Congressman Chris Bell's complaint. Mr. DeLay has insisted that these charges are merely partisan attacks, but the bipartisan Ethics Committee's unanimous conclusions have put that lie to rest. "Mr. DeLay's display today and his repeated ethical lapses have brought dishonor on the House of Representatives." Nancy Pelosi Source:http://biz.yahoo.com/prnews/041119/dcf033_1.html

GI Bill of Rights for the 21st Century

"Every American is indebted to our troops for their bravery, their patriotism, and the sacrifice they are willing to make for our country. Just as our soldiers pledge to leave no one behind on the battlefield, we must leave no veteran behind once they come home." Nancy Pelosi Source:House Speech, (05|06|2005)

GOP Tax Cuts

"They'll take food out of the mouths of children in order to give tax cuts to the wealthiest." Nancy Pelosi Source:http://news.yahoo.com/s/usatoday/riftappearsingopovercuttingtaxes andspending;_ylt=AnFXLI4n1Lv57u74PbElItqyFz4D;_ylu=X3oDMTA5aHJvMDdwBHNl YwN5bmNhdA--

Homeland Security

We must remain focused on the greatest threat to the security of the United States, the clear and present danger of terrorism. We know what we must do to protect America, but this Administration is failing to meet the challenge. Democrats have a better way to ensure our homeland security. Nancy Pelosi http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/nancy_pelosi.html "Protecting America from terrorism requires more than just resolve, it requires a plan. As we have seen in Iraq, planning is not the Bush Administration's strong suit. Nancy Pelosi Source:http://press.arrivenet.com/pol/article.php/666778.html

Hurricane Katrina

"There were two disasters last week: first, the natural disaster, and second, the man-made disaster, the disaster made by mistakes made by FEMA," Nancy Pelosi Source:http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050907/ap_on_go_pr_wh/ katrina_politics;_ylt=AojsCsjx7dL0BESBUJ2hBfSyFz4D;_ylu=X3 oDMTBiMW04NW9mBHNlYwMlJVRPUCUl

Invading Iran

Pelosi, D-Calif., noted that Bush consistently said he supports a diplomatic resolution to differences with Iran "and I take him at his word." At the same time, she said, "I do believe that Congress should assert itself, though, and make it very clear that there is no previous authority for the president, any president, to go into Iran." Nancy Pelosi Source:http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/ap/politics/4557916.html

Iraq

I have absolutely no regret about my vote against this war. The same questions remain. The cost in human lives, the cost to our budget, probably 100 billion. We could have probably brought down that statue for a lot less. Nancy Pelosi Source:http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/nancy_pelosi.html The president led us into the Iraq war on the basis of unproven assertions without evidence; he embraced a radical doctrine of pre-emptive war unprecedented in our history; and he failed to build a true international coalition. Nancy Pelosi http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/n/nancy_pelosi.html

Karl Rove

"Karl Rove has moved to center stage in the theater of the absurd. Our entire country came together after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. His shameful comments trying to revise history insult the victims of 9/11 and all of us who support them. President Bush must repudiate these remarks. For Karl Rove and his Republican allies to try to exploit 9/11 for political purposes -- once again -- just shows you how desperate Republicans are to change the subject to distract Americans from their failures." Nancy Pelosi Source:http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=49335

Middle Class and the GOP

ďItís important to note that the Republicans have finally felt the heat of doing something about the payroll-tax cut. They have resisted it for a while and now they see it has to pass. But the constraints that they place on it have a dampening effect. I donít know what the middle class ever did to the Republicans that theyíre so out to get them. But whether itís job creation, economic growth, the tax code and the rest ó the deck is getting stacked against the middle class.Ē While I point out the inconsistency of the Republicans saying tax cuts for the rich donít have to be offset but tax cuts for the middle class do, we would be interested in talking about a proposal that offsets that spending, that tax cut for the middle class. I donít think itís fair, but we need to have the tax cut for the middle class. But that would not include firing 200,000 people.Ē Nancy Pelosi Source:http://thehill.com/homenews/house/ 196547-pelosi-says-gop-is-out-to-get-the-middle-class

Roe vs. Wade

"Roe vs. Wade is based on a woman's fundamental right to privacy, a value that all Americans cherish. It established that decisions about whether to have a child do not and should not rest with the government. A woman -- in consultation with her family, her physician, and her faith -- is best qualified to make that decision." Nancy Pelosi Source:Statement on the 32nd Anniversary of Roe vs. Wade 1/21/2005 3:13:00 PM

Social Securityy

Social Security does face problems down the road, and we need to solve them, But we have the time to do it right. ... Social Security is an insurance program, not an investment program. We want to create a drumbeat across America to strengthen Social Security, We will not be a part of any effort to steal money from this system. Nancy Pelosi Source:http://www.sfexaminer.com/articles/2005/02/25/peninsula/ 20050224_ne05_pelosi.txt
