Nancy Pelosi, who this week announced she would stay on as Democratic House leader, told ABC's "This Week" that a fiscal cliff deal will have to include tax hikes for the rich.

“Just to close loopholes is far too little money,” Pelosi said in the interview. “If it’s going to bring in revenue, the president has been very clear that the higher income people have to pay their fair share.”
