House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned President Trump’s tax cuts in the most ridiculous way imaginable. She begun by invoking God. Then she called the tax cuts ‘theft’, and then ‘violence’.
“Today, we gather on this floor in the midst of a holy season. In this season we celebrate the miraculous blessings of God. We reflect on the wondrous joy of children and our responsibility to them. We remember our duty to live justly,” started Pelosi.
“And for those of us blessed to serve in this Congress, we must remember our special responsibility to govern fairly, to meet the needs of all of God’s children. In this holy time, the moral obscenity and unrepentant greed of the GOP tax scam stands out even more clearly,” she said.
“This GOP tax scam is simply theft, monumental, brazen theft from the American middle class and from every person who aspires to reach it. the GOP tax scam is not a vote for an investment in growth or jobs. It is a vote to install a permanent plutocracy in our nation. They’ll be cheering that later. It does violence to the vision of our Founders,” she said.
“It disrespects the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, who are a large part of our middle class and to whom we owe a future worthy of their sacrifice. And it betrays the future and betrays the aspirations of our children. It demands, it morally demands a no vote from every member of this house of the people,” she said. This is a clear attempt to pander to religious people. However, real religious people are far too smart to fall for her tricks.
Nancy Pelosi: "[Tax reform] does violence to the vision of our Founders."
This is categorically false.
