Pelosi to GOP: Buy Some White-Out

July 24, 2012

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi's office isn't missing any opportunities to jab Republicans, even if it's over a typo.

The House Rules Committee printed a description of the GOP's regulations-cutting legislation. and used the word "employment" instead of "unemployment."

The bill, known informally as the Red Tape Reduction Act, calls for the suspension of significant regulations until the unemployment rate hits 6 percent. Here's the language from Rules:

"The Secretary of Labor shall submit a report to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget when the Secretary determines that the Bureau of Labor Statistics average of monthly employment rates for any quarter beginning after the date of the enactment of this Act is equal to or less than 6.0 percent"

Pelosi's office was quick to pick up on the committee's flub.

"The Republicans have made a big typo in their latest message bill to nowhere. Looks like they should stop harping about 'red tape' and start looking for the white out," said Pelosi press secretary Drew Hammill.
