We’ve been reporting on Nancy Pelosi’s effort to push tax increases if Democrats retake the House in November. How in the world can she think this is a good thing? She has been touring the country hosting town halls to tout a roll back of Trump tax cuts. We want Pelosi to keep it up because this is a deal killer for any American who’s even remotely thinking of voting for Democrats in November.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said Tuesday that she seeks to raise taxes if Democrats take back the House and make her the speaker….she just claimed “that’s accurate” when asked if she wants to raise taxes:

WFB reports:

Politico’s Jake Sherman asked Pelosi about a new ad from the National Republican Campaign Committee in which Pelosi is quoted criticizing the GOP tax cuts passed at the end of 2017.

“It said that you would like to institute a single-payer health-care program and raise taxes — I think they mean roll back the tax cuts that they passed this year,” Sherman said. “Is that true?”

“Well the second part there is accurate,” Pelosi replied with a laugh. “I do think that we should revisit the tax legislation in the way that we always have, in a bipartisan, transparent way.”

Pelosi argued that Democrats ought to roll back the tax cuts in a way that would be “unifying to the country.”

The NRCC ad highlights Pelosi’s ambition to return to the speakership and her desire to roll back the Republican tax cuts. President Donald Trump signed the tax legislation in December, cutting tax rates for corporations and almost all American households, but Pelosi and Democrats have dubbed it the “GOP tax scam” that mostly benefits the rich.


NANCY PELOSI may have just put the last nail in the coffin for the Democrats. The “crumbs”comment must not have damaged the Dems enough. Pelosi just revealed that the Democrats will repeal the GOP tax bill if they win the midterms in November…She thinks she’s got a better idea:


Pelosi made an appearance at a town hall in Culver City, CA that is part of the “Repeal the Trump Tax” tour. It aims to hold 100 events nationwide on the weekend of April 14 to mark the one-year anniversary of the Tax March.

Via NTK:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that Democrats would indeed repeal the GOP tax law if they are successful in retaking the House of Representatives this November during a town hall on Wednesday.

The moderator of the event asked Pelosi if Democrats would re-write the tax bill from scratch or focus on reversing specific elements.


“One of our complaints about what they did with the tax bill is they did it in the dark of night with the speed of light,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi then declared that Democrats will win back the House in 2018, and after they do, they will work with Republicans to create a new tax bill.
