Pelosi: ‘It’s All About Fairness in Our Country’
Speaking at a United Steelworkers event on Monday, Nancy Pelosi railed against the wealthy and income inequality in America:
“We’re talking about addressing the disparity of income where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier and some other people are falling out of the middle class when we want to bring many more people into the middle class.
But that disparity is not just about wages alone, that disparity is about ownership and equity. It’s all about fairness in our country,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said to the United Steelworkers on Monday.

Pelosi Event Protested In Pittsburgh
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi attended an event in Pittsburgh.
While she was met with cheers on the inside, outside a group of people protested.
Pelosi spoke to female, mostly Democrat, union steelworkers. She told the audience the country could not go back to what she called the failed policies of the Bush administration.
“The Republicans say if they took over, they would go back to the exact same agenda,” she said. “We are not going back. We are not going back.”
Meantime, KDKA’s Jon Greiner reports a small group of protestors taunted Pelosi supporters in the convention center, saying it’s time for Democrats to stop blaming the Bush administration for current economic troubles.
“If Obama really wanted to do something, he could do something and he’s not doing it,” Cheryl Whitehouse, a protestor, said. “He’s making it worse as far as I’m concerned and [Pelosi’s] not helping matters.”
