During a little town hall event of Democrat leaders and their supporters, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that if Democrats do gain the majority in the midterm elections then they would definitely move to repeal the GOP tax law that was just passed last year, reports NTK Network.
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 made an outrageous declaration that Democrats will win back the House in 2018, and after they do, they will work with Republicans to create a new tax bill. That received a big round of applause from the audience.
“We’ll sit down at the table and say … what would be a tax bill that creates growth, that creates good paying jobs as it reduces the deficit?” Pelosi said. “It’s not about chipping at this piece or that piece, it’s about a comprehensive look at what our tax policy should be for the future.”
This is a classic Democratic move. By rewriting the tax plan, Democrats want to take away the hard earned bonuses that many Americans have earned thanks to the GOP tax cuts for corporations and middle-class American families. Some Americans reported earning a $2,000 bonus at the beginning of this new year, but now Pelosi and other Democrats want to reverse that and take more money away from families.
This is why midterm elections are more important than ever and Democrats cannot be allowed to gain the majority in the Senate.
