House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, not having it with the Republicans' no-revenue, all-cuts proposals for the debt ceiling:
"This isn't just about them saying we should reduce the deficit," she said, adding: "This is an excuse. The budget deficit is an excuse for the Republicans to undermine government plain and simple. They don't just want to make cuts, they want to destroy. They want to destroy food safety, clean air, clean water, the department of education. They want to destroy your rights."
The Republican Parking Sign goes for $15. The pitch: "8 inch x 12 inch metal sign with 3-dimensional embossing like a real parking sign! A great piece for your parking space at home, at the office, or just as decoration on your wall."
