Pelosi: GOP Tax Bill ‘Is Armageddon’

Monday on Capitol Hill at a press conference, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) described the Republican tax bill as “Armageddon.”

Pelosi said, “It is the end of the world. The debate on health care is like death. This is Armageddon.”

She continued, “This is a very big deal. Because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this. They take us further, more deeply into debt. What can you do but raise taxes? They contend that their gift to corporate America of a trillion and a half dollars will be paid for by the growth it creates. And even their own people say, ‘Nonsense, not true, not true.’ So let’s be truthful with the American people about that. They throw a few crumbs to the middle class, what they give with one hand they take away in bounty with another. And why? Because it’s in their DNA to give tax cuts to the rich. That’s their purpose in coming to Congress.”

She added, “The only reason it isn’t the end of the world is because America is a great country. And the greatness of America, and the fact that God is always with us is what gives us hope. But it is very important for the American people to know how adversely they will be, personally, affected by all of this.”
