House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her predictions of “death and destruction” following the GOP-sponsored tax cuts Thursday, saying low unemployment and higher wages are not good indicators of a healthy economy.
Pelosi was speaking with reporters during her weekly press briefing when she dismissed the strong economic data, saying “this isn’t about the unemployment rate, it’s about wages rising in our country.”
“People say, ‘Oh my goodness, … people are saying the unemployment rate is down, why isn’t my purchasing power increasing?” Pelosi said. “So, this isn’t just about the unemployment rate, it’s about wages rising in our country, so that consumer confidence is restored.”
