Trouble in paradise?
Washington (CNN) — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continued to withhold her endorsement for the debt deal Monday, even though President Obama said Sunday night Congressional leaders were on board.
Speaking to reporters on her way into a closed door meeting with House Democrats Monday, Pelosi said, “We’re very concerned that a bill that makes these big cuts and has no — not one red cent from the wealthiest people in our country — no revenue — is very disconcerting, that is.”
Pelosi added that she was weighing the positive aspects of the deal, like its long length and that it does not include entitlement cuts, and the negative aspects. She said she would discuss the measure with her caucus.
Pressed on whether she had made a decision to support the deal, she said, “I’m not going to be making any announcement.”
