POOL - AP CLIENTS ONLYWashington - 27 September 2013++WHITE BETWEEN SOUNDBITES++1. Wide of Pelosi entering the room2. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader: "It's impossible for Democrats to negotiate with House Republicans when they can't even negotiate with themselves. Instead of legislating responsibly, they want to live dangerously and that's not good for the American people. And now with only three days left, Republicans are threatening a shutdown that will hurt our economy, threaten job creation, leave our families with less security and our country with less certainty, and our economy with less stability. This is the most irresponsible way to negotiate a budget, it isn't negotiating."3. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader: "The full faith of the credit of the United States of America is non-negotiable. You can have any conversation you want, but threats and willingness to default, the mere discussion of it lowered our credit rating two years ago. The ideology of the Republicans is a luxury the American people cannot afford."4. SOUNDBITE (English) Rep. Nancy Pelosi, House Minority Leader: "It is beneath the dignity of the first branch of government, the legislative branch. We have a responsibility to come here, to represent our districts, to advocate for our point of view and to come to terms with what compromise will work for the American people." 5.
