Cheerleader for big government power
Of course, by "cuts", she means a reduction in the amount of increase in spending, but that is a point for another day. There are no actual cuts in spending. Yet, this doesn't prevent Herr Pelosi from doing her impression of Chicken Little, clucking that "the debt-limit ceiling is falling!"

Yes. And that is the point Madame Pelosi.
Pelosi: 'Very Little' Gov't Left If Spending Cuts are Matched with Debt-Limit Increase

(CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said if a debt limit increase is matched with federal spending cuts later this year, there will be “very little” of the “public space” left.

“If you keep saying ‘dollar for dollar,’ you will have very little in terms of the public space,” Pelosi said.
