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.
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.
CAN YOU BELIEVE PELOSI SAID THIS:
“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.
