 Nancy Pelosi to GOP: ‘Take back your party’

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday there is an anti-government strain of the GOP that is causing problems for the whole, calling on Republicans to take back control.

“They have something going on. I say to Republicans, ‘Take back your party,’” Pelosi said on “CBS This Morning.”

She pointed to the fact that a majority of Republicans didn’t support President George W. Bush on TARP and that they didn’t vote for federal aid after Hurricane Sandy as evidence of the issues that are also seen in the current government shutdown.

Pelosi pointed to intra-party fighting on the GOP side as standing in the way of a resolution to the shutdown, which was in its fourth day on Friday.

“It will take some coming together on the Republican side. It’s very hard to negotiate with Republicans when they can’t negotiate with themselves,” Pelosi said, saying Democrats have already accepted the GOP’s spending number. “They do not have within their own ranks the ability to take yes for an answer.”

The House Democratic leader dismissed criticism that her party is also not negotiating, saying they have compromised on the overall budget number and that they will be willing to negotiate on details in the budget, but she said attempts to get rid of Obamacare were a “nonstarter.”
