I hope we can change that percentage and get much more coming from savings, Pelosi said. In fact, I believe that all of the cost of the healthcare reform bill can come from squeezing more savings out of the system." Asked why Democrats were proposing more than $500 billion in new taxes if savings alone could fund their healthcare plan, Pelosi said: We have to have a revenue stream to ensure that the bill will be paid for. If we dont need that money we can use it to reduce the deficit. "There is going to be a revenue change at the high end," Pelosi said. "It will be directed to reduce the deficit or ... to help reduce the cost of this initiative. I believe that we have an obligation to try to squeeze as much savings out of the system so that we can use as much of the tax on the high-income earners in our country to reduce the deficit." Translation: We are going to hose the rich anyway, and this health care package is simply the best trojan horse we have.
