Multimillionaire Nancy Pelosi is heckled at a Phoenix, Arizona town hall while criticizing the benefits of tax reform for everyday Americans:
“These are kitchen table issues for America’s families. Most people are not in deadening poverty, but some are. Most people have to struggle to make ends meet.”
A woman towards the end of the video yells out, “How much are you worth Nancy?” Pelosi had been preaching about how horrible it is for some to be wealthy and others not…Even though approval for the tax bill has gone up 14%, Pelosi is still beating the dead horse of class warfare…
Pelosi is a multimillionaire who has gotten wealthy off of the backs of the American taxpayers:
According to National Review:
Nancy Pelosi may be one of the most liberal members of the U.S. House, where she runs the Democratic caucus, railing against income inequality and the avarice of the 1 percent. But she also happens to be one of the body’s wealthiest members: In Washington, she lives in a multimillion-dollar Georgetown condo; she owns a 16-acre vineyard in Napa Valley and a 3,700 square-foot house in San Francisco’s tony Pacific Heights, according to her May 2015 financial disclosure statements.
Her May 2015 financial-disclosure statements,showing income that places her in the top one-tenth of the 1 percent of Americans, may surprise some in light of the concern she’s expressed about income equality and the distribution of wealth.
“We’re talking about addressing the disparity in our country of income, where the wealthy people continue to get wealthier,” Pelosi said in 2010 at a United Steelworkers’ event. “That disparity is not just about wages alone,” she added. “That disparity is about ownership and equity. It’s all about fairness in our country.”
But even as she’s publicly bemoaned the rich getting richer, Pelosi’s fortune has grown.
