House GOP Group Launch SOTU Ad Attacking Pelosi Over Taxes

(American Action Network)

A group connected to House Republican leaders launched an ad on Monday blasting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her remarks about the new tax legislation.

The American Action Network will spend $1 million on ads to run on national television and digital media platforms this week, both before and after President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address on Tuesday.

In December, Pelosi referred to the GOP tax bill as "Armageddon" and "one of the worst bills in the history of the United States of America," and later called the bonuses announced by companies after the bill's passing as "crumbs." The AAN ad called back to these remarks.

"Tell Nancy Pelosi: She's wrong," the announcer says. "Middle-class tax cuts are working."

"A much-needed bonus or a $2,000 tax cut may be crumbs to Pelosi and her elite San Francisco friends, but that's real money that matters to middle-class families — allowing them to have some much-needed peace of mind," Corry Bliss, AAN executive director, told The Hill in a statement.

"The casual dishonesty of taking Leader Pelosi's words out of context is nothing compared to the dishonesty of Republicans' sales pitch on their tax scam itself," said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

"Polling shows the American people recognized the GOP tax scam for exactly what it is: a staggering giveaway to corporations and the wealthiest, delivered on the backs of working families," he added.

"Now, underwater and exposed, Republicans and their special interest donors are trying to say a bill that gave 83 percent of its tax cuts to the wealthiest one percent was really about helping the middle class."
