Pelosi Strikes Again: High Employment “Means Little” to American Families
We sometimes shudder to think what good shape the Democratic Party might be in if they didn’t have such a lunkhead as one of their top figureheads in Washington. Granted, you don’t have to look too far to find an idiot in the Democrat leadership, but few of them reach the Depths of Dumb like House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. She comes across not only like someone with no particular intelligence (let’s mow the lawn instead of building a wall!) but as someone who is so far removed from the concerns of the American people that she might as well be from another planet. She is the quintessential swamp creature; clueless, elitist, and arrogant beyond belief.
This week, Pelosi responded to the May jobs report, which has nothing in it that Democrats can campaign against in the midterm elections. This is a report tailor-made for continued Republican dominance of Washington, so Pelosi knew she had to take a whack at it with one of her patented, out-of-touch statements.
“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” she wrote. “Republicans’ cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families’ premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO. Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids. At the same time, the President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant.”
The only people to whom this booming economy “means little” are the welfare slugs that call the Democratic Party home. Pelosi spent eight years touting the achievements of a president who could not have done less for the economy if it had been his mandate to destroy it completely. Now she wants us to believe that a boom economy isn’t that important and that Trump is somehow responsible for…GAS PRICES! For rising Obamacare premiums! OBAMAcare premiums! The cognitive dissonance required to buy this nonsense is astounding.
There was a time, not that long ago, that Democrats had a real shot at taking control of Congress. But thanks to a boneheaded strategy that is one part campaign against the economy and one part Trump/Russia conspiracy theories, they are headed for the disaster they deserve.
