During an event Wednesday, the House Minority Leader made a stunning “dark of the night” campaign promise to take back money that belongs to the American people.
Pelosi made it clear democrats repealing the tax cut law was a top priority, which allows nearly 90 percent of Americans to keep more their own money.
“One of our complaints about what they did with the tax bill is they did it in the dark of night with the speed of light,” Pelosi said.
She added: “We’ll sit down at the table and say … what would be a tax bill that creates growth, that creates good paying jobs as it reduces the deficit?”
Pelosi used political speak to subtly suggest democrats would try to work with republicans to create a new tax bill that her party deems suitable.
“It’s not about chipping at this piece or that piece, it’s about a comprehensive look at what our tax policy should be for the future.”
There’s the admission: it’s not improving the bill, but rather an outright repeal of a bill that helps American families.
Pelosi made it clear democrats fully intend to repeal President Donald Trump’s historic tax law, meaning millions of Americans will no longer be able to keep more of their hard-earned money.
Under Trump, the tax cuts are just one of many major accomplishments that have greatly benefited the country.
Millions of new jobs have been created, the stock market has been roaring, unemployment is at a historic low, and the president is working to solve many of America’s trade imbalances with other countries.
In addition, the tax cuts have been very popular and helpful to hard-working families across the country.
Numerous studies have shown that roughly 90 percent of Americans will see an increase in their paychecks this year. Americans haven’t seen that since former President Ronald Reagan was in office in the 1980s.
Ahead of crucial midterm elections in November, Pelosi has made it clear repealing the tax law and stalling Trump’s economic agenda will be a top priority for democrats.
