The Republican budget “stirs” up violence, rather than preventing the spread of it, Pelosi alleged on Wednesday.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused Republicans of proposing a budget that will cause violence to spread, while speaking at a rally to oppose education budget cuts on Wednesday.
“A budget that says we do not measure the strength of our country in the health, education, and well-being of our people. We only measure it in military might,” Pelosi told the crowd. “You know what that does? It requires more military might. It takes us down the wrong path.”
“We take an oath to protect and defend,” Pelosi concluded. “But, that’s not the point of this. This is supposed to be a budget that prevents the spread of violence, instead they have a budget that stirs it up.”
