Democrats are in a panic.
Polls for Donald Trump and the GOP are on the upswing and their dreams of seizing control of Congress have been dealt a serious blow.
Pelosi tried to stop the bleeding but she used one word that had everyone thinking she has lost it.
The surge in popularity for Donald Trump’s tax bill is powering the GOP resurgence.
A Survey Monkey poll published in the New York Times showed that 51 percent of Americans now had a favorable opinion of the tax legislations.
Voters are seeing the benefits in the form of bigger take home pay and bonuses.
Pelosi committed a horrific gaffe when she referred to these as “crumbs.”
Now she is trying help the Democrats regain their political footing, but instead she is digging an even deeper hole.
She’s out blasting the GOP tax bill as “unpatriotic.”
And it’s leading many to wonder if she has lost her marbles.
NKT Networks reports:
“Pelosi said that instead, Republicans passed the GOP tax bill in the dead of night so that America people would not know about the legislation, allowing Republicans to “pin a rose on it,” as she described it.
“If what you’re doing is cutting the taxes at the high end and therefore not being allowed to invest in the future, you’re doing a grave disservice to our country,” Pelosi said.
A participant at the town hall interjected that it was unpatriotic.
“It’s unpatriotic,” Pelosi agreed. “I wish we could have come together to do a fair tax bill, but it is about our country.”
Labeling a bill that increased take home pay for every day Americans as “unpatriotic” is a bizarre statement.
It puts the Democrats on the wrong side of a growing economy.
Will it kill their 2018 chances?
