Pelosi Blasts Republican "Legislative Arsonists"

Speaking to CNN's Candy Crowley, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Republicans who threaten to bring down the government unless Obamacare is defunded are "legislative arsonists." She asserted that the "anti-government ideology is making a mess of what's going on in Congress now." Anti-government ideologues who dominate the GOP know that they won't succeed in repealing Obamacare; instead, Pelosi argued, their aim is to shut down government and obstruct progress: "The effect of putting the Affordable Care Act on the bill is to shut down government. They know that. They know it has no prospect of prevailing... I call them legislative arsonists. They're there to burn down what we should be building up in terms of investments in education and scientific research and all that it is that makes our country great and competitive." Watch:
