Democrats around the country are making it clear that they plan on making the reversal of pay raises and ending of bonuses for working Americans a key tenet of their party’s platform in 2018. New video reported by NTK Network shows Nancy Pelosi promising to repeal the recently passed GOP tax reform law should Democrats retake Congress this November, despite the massively positive impact the law has had on the lives of American workers.
USA Today reported in July of 2017 that Pelosi has been a major fundraiser for the Democratic Governors Association, working with former Democrat governor Terry McAuliffe, to court major party donors on weekend trips to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston and New York.
With Pelosi actively raising money for Democrat gubernatorial candidates across the country this year, they will have to answer on the campaign trail for her plans to reverse millions of dollars in pay raises and bonuses for working families as a direct result of GOP tax reform.
NTK Network reports:
“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.
‘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.
‘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.’”
