Hmmm: Pelosi inching towards compromise on Bush tax cuts?

Numerous times in her weekly press conference she strongly argued against the tax cuts for Americans making more than $250,000.

“I see no justification giving a tax cut, going into debt to underwrite and subsidize tax cuts for the wealthiest people in America.” Pelosi said.

But responding to a question about whether there is any chance the top tax bracket tax cuts will be renewed, she appeared to not rule it out. “The only thing I can tell you is that the tax cuts for the middle class will be extended this Congress.”

Republicans immediately seized on her comments, criticizing her for both sides of the argument.
