Good news: Nancy Pelosi wants the budget to be balanced. Granted she wants it done after she’s long gone and the sun has collapsed into a white dwarf, but it’s a start:

During her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill, CNSNews.com asked Pelosi if she agreed with President Barack Obama’s recent remarks that America does not have an “immediate” debt crisis. The U.S. debt as of Wednesday stands at $16.7 trillion.

“Well, I believe that we’re on a path to reduce the deficit,” Pelosi said. “And I would say that — count me as one who would say I want us to be on a path to balance the budget in a number of decades.”

“You can’t do it in one decade,” she said. “Not after what we have been through.” [i.e. a Pelosi speakership – DP]

Pelosi added that there was an “explosion” of debt during the Bush administration.

Well, naturally:

null

Pelosi obviously didn’t admit that Bush’s debt explosion carried over quite a bit, and then some.

Other Dems will undoubtedly find Pelosi’s clarion call to “balance the budget within a few decades” far too fiscally aggressive.
