Democratic House minority leader Nancy Pelosi’s own party is badly souring on her.
According to a new Gallup poll, Pelosi’s favorability among Democrats is at 55 percent — the lowest it’s been in nine years.
On top of her stellar approval ratings, Pelosi’s plan for 2018 includes campaigning on raising your taxes. In April, she said that she would repeal the Trump tax cuts.
“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,” she said. “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?”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowed Wednesday that Democrats will rework the GOP tax bill if they successfully retake the House in the 2018 midterm elections.
Speaking at a Culver City town hall event as part of the “Repeal the Trump Tax” tour, Pelosi pledged that Democrats would overhaul the tax bill into one that “creates growth, creates good-paying jobs, as it reduces the deficit.”
“Over 80 percent of the benefits go to the top 1 percent,” Pelosi said of the GOP tax cuts. “Eighty-six million middle-class families will see a tax increase while they advertise it as a middle-class bill.”
According to the non-partisan Tax Policy Center, the average household will receive a tax cut of $1,610 in 2018. Only 5 percent of taxpayers will see increased taxes in 2018.
