Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi escalated the war-of-words with her Republican colleagues this week, bizarrely suggesting the recently passed GOP tax legislation will usher in the end of the world.
The House Minority Leader was addressing reporters Monday evening when she was asked to comment on the House of Representatives version of the Republican tax bill making its way through Congress.
“The debate on health care is life and death, this is Armageddon. This is a very big deal. You know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this,” said Pelosi.
Her comments come just a day after she ripped the recently passed legislation, telling the Floor of the House of Representatives that the bill was the “worst” proposal in the history of the United States Congress.
“I have said that this was stiff competition by some of the other things they have put forth, is the worst bill in the history of the United States Congress,” Pelosi told her fellow lawmakers.
“Now, how can I make that claim? Well, because it involves more money, hurts more people, increases the deficit by so much more, and just because everything is bigger in our country, the consequences of this bill, a multi-trillion-dollar economy being addressed by a bill that had no hearings, no expert testimony, just the speed of light,” she added.
