Pelosi on Boehner’s Funding Bill: ‘This Is Blackmail’

Thursday on the House floor while addressing House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) 1,603-page, approximately $1 trillion omnibus spending bill, Minority House Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “Now we are saying the exposure, the recourse with the U.S. taxpayer. Just plain wrong.” 

“This is a ransom, this is blackmail,” she added. “You don’t get a bill unless Wall Street gets its taxpayer coverage.”
