Nancy Pelosi is measuring the drapes.
The Democrat leader in the House is already boasting about what they will do if they win back power in November.
And Pelosi made a promise that will strike fear in the heart of every American.
Donald Trump has presided over an economic boom.
His tax cut bill will inject the economy with enough juice to keep the good times rolling.
Democrats unanimously voted against the legislation.
They believe Americans money belongs to the government and it should be up to the feds to redistribute it.
So Pelosi pledged that if the Democrats win back power, their first order of business will be to raise taxes by rewriting Trump’s signature legislative achievement.
The Daily Caller reports:
“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.
California Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu, speaking alongside Pelosi at the event, said the GOP tax cuts would result in “deep cuts to Social Security, to Medicare, to all these critical programs that serve a lot of Americans.”
Pelosi didn’t offer specifics when asked if Democrats would re-work the bill from scratch or focus on specific portions, saying instead her party would work openly with Republicans to reach a deal.
“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,” the California Democrat said.”
Raising taxes would throw the economy in reverse.
But Democrats know that wouldn’t affect them.
Voters would take it out on Trump in 2020.
Beyond the fact that Democrats ideologically support high taxes to fund big government, they will do everything in their power to deny Trump a second term.
And if that means Democrats must wreck the economy in order to accomplish that goal, it is a price they are willing to pay.
