House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was pressed by two reporters at an event in San Francisco on Wednesday to address the fact that many Americans are beginning to believe that the tax cut law that President Donald Trump signed n December has turned out to be a good deal for them.
“Yes,” she admitted at one point, “people are getting a little more in their paychecks.”
In fact, Pelosi twice admitted during the event that the tax-cut law was in fact a tax cut, but then she lamented what she described as cuts in federal entitlement programs and increasing in the federal debt.
According to a transcript of the event published by Pelosi’s office, a reporter from KCBS radio asked her: “This tax bill–working people are getting more money in their paychecks–what’s wrong with that?”
“Thank you for that question,” she said. “As I said, we recognize that some people are getting a little bit more. But there is a banquet out there for the high-end and that’s just not right. While they are getting a little bit more, they are getting things taken away and that’s what we will see. They put this little goodie in there for people to say, ‘This is the greatest thing’, but at the same time, they took away things.
