Rep. Nancy "Crumbs" Pelosi (D-Wacko) doesn't really seem to like Americans.
The multimillionairess, who flies home to California nearly every weekend in a private plane on the taxpayers' dime, thinks the massive tax cuts pushed through by the Republican Congress and signed into law by President Trump are bad for the middle class.
But despite Pelosi's pessimism, the economy is booming — so much so that after the release of economic data on Friday, The New York Times actually wrote a story headlined: "We Ran Out of Words to Describe How Good the Jobs Numbers Are."
The stats show payrolls gained 223,000 in May, well above market expectations of 188,000, and the unemployment rate hitting an 18-year low of 3.8%. The stock market is booming and real take-home wages are up for the first time since 2009. Some economists now estimate the second quarter could show growth of up to 4.8%. Staggering.
But all that was bad news to Pelosi. "May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch," she said in a statement Friday. “The President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant."
Pelosi, who famously called tax cuts of thousands of dollars for middle-class Americans "crumbs," could only see a glass half empty. So actor James Woods dropped by to help the career politician make sense of the numbers, and to explain why the San Francisco liberal is so negative about the booming economy.
Woods had more to say.
And he even dropped a bomb on former president Barack Obama, who famously said a lot of jobs were never coming back to America.
