House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is still trying to convince the American people that the tax reform bill approved by Republicans in Congress last year is a “disaster.”
No one’s buying it.
While Pelosi tried to slam Republicans for the so-called “wealth gap” and attack them over people living in poverty during a town hall in Phoenix, one woman shouted: “How much are you worth, Nancy?”
Pelosi shot back: “No, we’re not talking about that.” Raising her voice, she added, incoherently, “In any event … I can out … I’m a mother of five, I can speak louder than anybody.”
Pelosi is the 6th richest member of the House of Representative, worth more than $100 million.
The Arizona town hall came as part of a 100-city tour organized by Democrats to mobilize liberals against tax reform. Pelosi has been one of the most fervent attackers of the tax cuts, even infamously calling the large bonuses given to 3.5 million workers “crumbs.”
Unfortunately for Pelosi, her tour doesn’t seem to be working: a new poll from The New York Times shows that a majority of Americans now support the tax reform law. 51% of Americans approve of the tax law—up from just 37% back in December.
