In it, but not of it. TPM DC
Pelosi demurred, "The only thing I can tell you is that the tax cuts for the middle class will be extended this Congress."
Her position is equal and opposite to House Minority Leader John Boehner's. Pelosi insists that the top-bracket tax cuts should expire, Boehner says they should be renewed, but neither will say one way or another whether or how their views will prevail.
"What I say [to those Democrats] is what I've said all along: The tax cuts for the high end have not produced any jobs, they've only increased the deficit," Pelosi said. "I respect that they have a different view. Many of these members are members who are budget hawks, so I think we'll be able to find some common ground on the subject."
