Nancy Pelosi accuses Republicans of trying to kill children with E. coli

“I say to (Republicans), do you have children that breathe air? Do you have grandchildren that drink water? I??m a mom and I have five kids… .”

Republicans don??t want to spend money to protect children from the E. coli bacteria, said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) during a campaign event Monday in support of a Democrat running for a Florida congressional seat.

??I say to (Republicans), do you have children that breathe air? Do you have grandchildren that drink water? I??m a mom and I have five kids … as a mom I was vigilant about food safety, right moms? If you could depend on the government for one thing it was that you had to be able to trust the water that our kids drank and the food that they ate. But this is the E. coli club. They do not want to spend money to do that,? Pelosi said.

??Bless their hearts, it??s the philosophy Republicans in Congress have. And bless their hearts, they act upon their beliefs. It??s an ideology. We shouldn??t have a government role. So reduce the police, the firemen, the teachers, reduce their role and give tax cuts to the high end. That will stimulate the economy and everything will be good,? Pelosi said.

On Sunday, Pelosi stepped into the political fray between Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney. Reid accused Romney of not paying his taxes in a ten-year period, and has come under fire from both Democrats and Republicans.

Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee, called Reid a ??dirty liar,? but Pelosi defended Reid in an interview with the Huffington Post.

??Harry Reid made a statement that is true. Somebody told him. It is a fact,? Pelosi said.
