Nancy Pelosi has been complaining and downplaying the significance of the tax reform bill since it was passed. She has repeatedly called the money saved by Americans as a result “crumbs.”
Now she’s making another untrue claim about tax reform and even the liberal Washington Post has called her out.
The Daily Caller reports:
WaPo Gives Nancy Pelosi Two Pinocchios For Comments About Trump’s Tax Law
Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi earned two Pinocchios from The Washington Post Tuesday, for comments she made about President Donald Trump’s tax law.
“Eighty-six million middle-class families will see a tax increase while they advertise it as a middle-class bill,” Pelosi claimed at a town hall in California on April 4, WaPo reported.
“Pelosi has been using this line for months and we have never gotten around to fact-checking it,” Glenn Kessler, a reporter for WaPo’s “Fact Checker” blog, wrote in an analysis. “But a reader saw this news report and wondered if it could possibly be true, given other news reports saying most Americans are getting some kind of tax cut.”
“In 2018, most U.S. taxpayers can expect some kind of tax cut, according to just about every analysis,” Kessler wrote….
WaPo’s analysis said it was in her right to talk about the last year included in the tax cuts, but decided Pelosi’s statement was two Pinocchios for “telling only half of the story of the tax bill.”
Give it up, Nancy. When you’ve lost the Washington Post, you should probably stop talking.
