Caldwell: Pelosi, Dems Made 'Tactical Error' by Resisting GOP Tax Cuts
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has continued to criticize the Republican tax cuts, despite massive backlash to her infamous "crumbs" remark earlier this year.
During her weekly press conference on Thursday, Pelosi railed against the "tax scam," which she said will add more than $2 trillion to the deficit.
“While the Republicans were saying, ‘Oh, it will pay for itself,’ we know that it doesn’t," Pelosi said. "Anyone who says that these tax cuts pay for themselves — it’s not true, it’s nonsense, and it’s BS."
On "Your World" on Friday, Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell said attacking the tax cuts is not a winning strategy for Democrats heading into this November's midterm elections.
"It's interesting to me that Nancy Pelosi -- who's worth $30 million, by the way -- called tax reform 'crumbs,' but yet called legislation extending a $40 payroll tax cut in 2011 a 'victory for all Americans' and attributed it to Obama's leadership," Caldwell said.
He argued that Democrats made a "tactical error" by resisting tax reform, thereby resisting the prosperity of the American people.
With more than 80 percent of Americans receiving a tax cut and millions of dollars in bonuses being given out by companies who have benefited from lower taxes, Democrats are now trying to portray the tax bill as a "scam," Caldwell said.
"The American people clearly know better. And they can see their paychecks and see the ramifications of a GOP majority."
