Nancy Pelosi isn’t even trying to hide it anymore. During a recent interview, she came right out and confirmed that if Democrats retake power, they intend to raise taxes. They just can’t stand the idea of people being allowed to keep more of their own money.
Market Watch reports:
Pelosi says she wants to increase taxes
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi may have stepped into getting herself into opposition ads around the country as she criticized the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
Politico’s Jake Sherman asked Pelosi at an event on Tuesday about a new Republican ad.
“They have a new ad they put out after you said you thought you were going to win the majority, the title is, ‘All at Stake,’ it said, you would like to institute a single-payer health care program and cancel — raises taxes, I think they mean, roll back the tax cuts they passed this year,” Sherman asked.
“Well, the second part is accurate,” Pelosi said.
Immediately, her remark went viral on Twitter about her intention to increase taxes.
The National Republican Congressional Committee issued a statement saying it “appreciates her honesty. Rest assured you’ll be seeing this video repeatedly this fall.”
