I think she meant third-world, Obama’s already turned us into a second-rate nation.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) expressed fears that if President Obama agreed to more spending cuts as part of a deal to avert the fiscal cliff, the U.S. would become a “second-rate nation” in an interview on CBS’ “This Morning.”
“If you go beyond $1.6 trillion in spending cuts, pretty soon you have a blueprint for a second-rate nation,” Pelosi said. “You have to reduce the deficit for sure.”
“But if you go over the fiscal cliff, you have a recipe for a second-class nation, too,” host Charlie Rose said.
Pelosi said that entitlement reform could be saved for later so a deal could be struck.
