Naturally she’s saying this now because Boehner proposed it.
Via Free Beacon:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued Tuesday that Speaker John Boehner’s “Plan B” proposal for a fiscal cliff deal is a “tactic” and “not a serious proposal” — the plan, however, is one Pelosi herself has advocated for repeatedly in 2012.
Boehner’s plan would raise rates for income over $1 million.
“It’s really hard to imagine why they even came up with it,” Pelosi said in an interview with Andrea Mitchell, “unless they just wanted to prove to their members that unless 218 of them were ready to raise rates, it’s not going to pass. The Democrats are not going to give them that success.”
“It’s a tactic, but it’s not a serious proposal,” she added.
