Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi bailed on a “highly-anticipated” protest against the GOP tax cuts making their way through Congress on Monday, ditching the event at the last minute after only dozens of liberal demonstrators turned up at the event inside the Capitol.
A reporter for left-leaning MSNBC news was on the scene to cover the event, but was forced to admit the blatant failure on-air, saying the protest was nothing like “what we saw with the healthcare law.”
“These protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law. This particular protest was supposed to start at three, it was supposed to feature Nancy Pelosi, and it’s supposed to have hundreds of people, and none of those things are going to end up being true,” the journalist added.
Earlier this month, Pelosi infamously referred to the new GOP legislation as the end-of-the-world, saying the bill would bring about “Armageddon” for average Americans.
“This is Armageddon. This is a very big deal,” said the House Minority Leader. “Because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this. They take us farther, more deeply into debt. What can you do but raise taxes?”
