Pelosi Power

Nancy Pelosi who currently has no effective power in the House of Representatives is planning on exercising her power to prevent a balanced budget.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has so far played a minor, background role in the negotiations between President Obama and congressional Republicans over raising the debt ceiling. But she sought to change all that Friday, in a private meeting with Obama to drive home her earlier pledge to oppose any deal that cuts the nation's entitlement programs.
I doubt she has the power to sustain her desires. Looming even bigger is the fact that the nation lacks the resources to sustain her desires. So far Congress has been unable to repeal the law of Supply and Demand. I predict they will do no better with gravity. Congress does have a bit of expertise in this area that is unsurpassed though. The Critters involved know how to increase friction. Very handy if you want to slow things down.
