Pelosi On Unemployment Benefits Extension: I'd Rather Not Pay For It

Nancy Pelosi the Democratic Leader of the House of Representatives while addressing the 2012 Communications Workers of America Legislative-Political Conference laid out her political funding views for Medicare, unemployment benefits and the payroll tax credit. Pelosi complained ‘I’d rather NOT do it paid for. I’m prepared to do it almost at any cost’ and then came up with a solution if she must be forced to actually pay for the legislation she backs ‘I think it should be very simple you want to pay for it – pay for it pay for it with a surcharge for the wealthiest people in our country that’s easy.’
