House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) released a video Tuesday of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) “endorsing” the Republican tax cuts passed last year.
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.
Pelosi is of course a fierce opponent of the tax cuts signed by President Donald Trump, calling the law a “tax scam” that acted as a giveaway to corporations and the rich. She’s frequently referred to bonuses doled out by companies in response to the slashing of corporate rates as “crumbs.”
