On Tuesday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) released a video trolling House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) over the GOP tax bill signed into law last year.
The Free Beacon reports:
In the video, Pelosi discusses a hypothetically strong economy during a town hall in Arizona on Feb. 20, with clips of actual positive economic news spliced in following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Mixed in with Pelosi's statements are news items about increased investment, a majority of the country thinking the U.S. is doing well, the unemployment rate dropping below four percent, small business wage increases, and higher consumer confidence.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has already launched campaign ads targeting Democrats after Pelosi referred to $1,000+ tax cuts for working-class families as being "pathetic" and "crumbs."
"In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic," Pelosi said in January.
Many people viewed Pelosi's comments as showing just how out-of-touch she is with the middle class due to the fact that she is worth $30 million.
