While Nancy Pelosi was criticizing the recent new tax reform laws while discussing the typical Democrat pablum about the haves and have nots at a town hall, a person heckled her from the audience wanting to know just how much she’s worth.
“How much are you worth Nancy? Are you in abject poverty? How much are you worth?”
The heckler said more but I couldn’t hear the rest. But her point is a good one, especially after she had just quoted that “God never intended for one group of people to live in superfluous inordinate wealth, while others live in abject deadening poverty.”
In fact if you google Nancy Pelosi’s wealth, you’ll find this quote at the top of the search page:
Roll Call’s Wealth of Congress Index reported that Pelosi’s net worth was $29.35 million and having ranked 15th out of 50 wealthiest members of Congress for 2014.
Assuming these numbers are true, talk about superfluous inordinate wealth. No wonder she didn’t want to discuss it. LOL!
In related news, and something Nancy Pelosi is sure not to tout, the tax reform law now has become more popular so that a majority of Americans now support it:
The poll, published in the New York Times conducted by SurveyMonkey, shows that 51 percent of Americans now approve of the new law, while 46 percent remain opposed.
“Public opinion is moving in the direction of this bill,” Chief Research Officer for SurveyMonkey Jon Cohen told the Times. “Considering where it was, it is dramatically different.”
I expect this to continue to rise as Americans see their wallets impacted. Now if Congress could only repeal Obamacare to stop these skyrocketing premiums, then I bet they’d win easily in November.
