California Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi recently slammed the GOP tax reform (and tax cut) bill as pathetic, merely giving the American people “crumbs.”
Reports indicate 80% of Americans will benefit from the cuts.
The thing is, Pelosi struck a much different tune just a few years ago about a very similar item.
Normally it isn’t news when a Democrat is caught lying. In the news industry that is referred to as a “dog bites man” story because it is a regular occurrence with little appeal to readers. But when the lie is told by a party leader and when there is documented evidence on record of that politician making a contradictory statement in the past it merits attention.
This is the case with Pelosi who only days after mocking the fact that corporations were giving out employee bonuses after the tax bill passed continues to churn out whoppers.
More from Daily Wire:
Pelosi made the harsh comments of the tax reform bill signed by President Donald Trump despite the fact that 80% of tax payers will see tax cuts, the average family receiving around $1,200 in savings, and nearly 100 companies have already announced major bonuses, wage increases, and charitable donations because of the bill.
However, in 2011 Pelosi applauded a mere $40 payroll tax cut passed by President Barack Obama as “a victory for all Americans” that would make a difference for the “average family.”
Today's agreement is a victory for the American people-they spoke out clearly & #40dollars each paycheck will make a difference.

So $40 per paycheck under Obama makes a huge difference, yet $1,200 annually means nothing, huh?
Good call, Nancy.
