House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi isn’t ruling out pushing for upper-income earners to pay more even after the “fiscal cliff” deal that raised their taxes.

She tells CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “I’m saying that’s not off the table.” The California Democrats isn’t getting into specifics but she does discuss changes to tax law that might involve deductions and other breaks.

The former House speaker also says the current Republican Party isn’t the “Grand Old Party that did so many things for America that commanded so much respect.” She says the country needs a strong GOP but she describes the current party as a “really over-the-edge crowd” that’s dominated by an element of “anti-government ideologues” committed to opposing President Barack Obama.

    More taxes for the rich…except me! – Nancy Pelosi

    I wonder how many people realize those “rich” deductions like the child tax credit and the housing interest deduction are among the top considered cuts?
