Nancy Pelosi’s career is defined by outrageous comments.
She’s set a bar for spouting nonsense that is almost impossible to top.
And her latest attack on Trump will leave you speechless.
Republicans are trying to pass a budget blueprint to set the groundwork for tax reform.
In order to pass permanent tax relief with only Republican votes, they need to use reconciliation.
That means the tax cut package can’t add to the deficit.
So House Republicans rolled out a budget blueprint that called for $203 billion in spending cuts.
The Washington Post reports:
“House Republicans unveiled a 2018 budget plan Tuesday that would pave the way for ambitious tax reform legislation — but only alongside a package of politically sensitive spending cuts that threaten to derail the tax rewrite before it begins.
GOP infighting over spending, health care and other matters continues to cast doubt on whether the budget blueprint can survive a House vote. Failing to pass a budget could complicate leaders’ plans to move on to their next governing priority as hopes of a health-care overhaul appeared to collapse late Monday in the Senate.
The House Budget Committee blueprint, which is set for a Wednesday committee vote, sets out special procedures that could ultimately allow Republicans to pass legislation over the objections of Senate Democrats who can normally block bills they oppose. GOP leaders in the House, as well as top Trump administration officials, hope to use those procedures — known as reconciliation — to pass a tax overhaul later this year.
The instructions in the draft budget, however, go well beyond tax policy and set the stage for a potential $203 billion rollback of financial industry regulations, federal employee benefits, welfare spending and more. Those are policy areas where Republicans have, in many cases, already passed legislation in the House but have seen Democrats block action in the Senate.”
The Democrats standard playbook in this instance is to accuse Republicans of stealing food out of the mouths of the poor in order to cut taxes for the wealthy.
But Nancy Pelosi took it to the next level and claimed the GOP budget would incite violence.
You can watch the video of her remarks below.
Pelosi’s remarks are outrageous considering a Bernie Sanders supporter attempted to assassinate Republican members of Congress.
The deranged leftist was egged on by a left-wing echo chamber that smeared Trump as a traitor and Republicans as vile reprobates.
The left created a toxic political environment where their supporters believe lashing out with violence is their only resort.
By claiming the GOP budget will stir violence, Pelosi critics argue Pelosi is only ramping up the hatred against Trump and could lead to a crazed individual going off the deep end.
Democrats should take stock of the consequences of their rhetoric and reevaluate the message Pelosi and other party leaders are putting out to the public.
