Pelosi: GOP the ‘High Priests’ of Trickle Down Economics

‘Tax cuts for the rich’


PELOSI: "As I say, I don’t paint everybody on Wall Street with the same brush, but I do say this, they are the high priests of the special interests and they sacrificed everything on the altar of trickle-down economics. Tax cuts for the rich. Special interest tax provisions in our code at the expense of working families in our country. So when we talk about increasing wages and all the rest of that, everything that they do is counter to that. Whether they deal with OSHA and NLRB and collective bargaining and minimum wage, all of those things, they are all in the negative column for them. But what’s in the plus column is, what works for Wall Street works for them at the expense of Main Street.”
