House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled-down on her baseless attacks on the GOP tax cuts this week, telling a packed audience she plans to repeal the legislation should Democrats manage to retake the House of Representatives this fall.
Pelosi was speaking at a town hall event in California Wednesday night when she lashed-out at the President’s tax overhaul, claiming over 80% of the benefits go “to the top one percent.”
“Over 80 percent of the benefits go to the top 1 percent,” said the former Speaker of the House. “Eighty-six million middle-class families will see a tax increase while they advertise it as a middle-class bill.”
Pelosi’s comments come just a day after the US government published a strong economic forecast, with record low unemployment, higher wages, and big bonuses as American workers feel the benefits of the GOP-sponsored cuts.
