    Pelosi described Boehner’s approach to coming debt-ceiling negotiations as immature and irresponsible. “Last year, just the threat of not lifting the debt ceiling caused our credit rating to be lowered. This is not a responsible, mature, sensible place for us to go. We all know we have to reduce the deficit. We have to do it in a balanced way,” she said on ABC’s “This Week.” “The speaker wants to go over the edge. […] “If the speaker was serious about moving forward, Pelosi said, he should bring the middle-class tax cuts to the floor now so that they are not held hostage during negotiations after the election. “I challenge the speaker right now to bring the middle income tax cuts to the floor,” she said. Pelosi praised the defense cuts that are scheduled to take effect in 2013 as a result of the previous debt ceiling deal. — HuffPo
