Pelosi Says She Has “No Regrets” On Last Day As Speaker

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrat Nancy Pelosi says she has no regrets on her last day as House speaker, a reign that last four years and is ending after the November elections.

   Pelosi said Tuesday she looks forward to leading a loyal but tenacious opposition in the House. She started by calling Republicans hypocrites for trying to repeal the new health care law, which would increase the deficit.

   Republican John Boehner of Ohio will be sworn in as the new speaker on Wednesday, and Pelosi will be demoted to minority leader. Republicans have already scheduled a vote for next week on repealing the sweeping new health care law, an effort that is sure to fail in the Senate.

    Nancy Pelosi is a jerk. She does not get it and does not car what the people want!! I sure am glad she is no longer in line to succeed the President if something happens to him or the Vice President. THAT was a very scary thought

    Unemployment benefits, Speaker Pelosi said, “It creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name.”

    Dems, Repubs, take your pick. Both are out of touch with the reality of the average American. The only thing they are concerned with is there party.

      So true!
      They no longer server the people, they serve their party. Hopefully, one day soon, in our lifetime, the American people will realize this, and stop voting for the big 2.
