Pelosi stated when requested about McConnell and Senate Republican considerations that extra folks may obtain ACA subsidies:
This can be a two-year extension of an enchancment on the Reasonably priced Care Act in order that the subsidies could be obtainable to the subsequent tier of earnings folks. It’s not about wealth.
In the event that they need to speak about wealth, they need to take a look at their very own tax rip-off that they handed at the hours of darkness of night time within the pace of sunshine that gave 83% of the advantages to prime 1% forcing practically $2 trillion of debt on our kids to pay sooner or later with the intention to give tax breaks to the high-end. They ought to not be complaining about some folks making slightly extra money getting a subsidy.
McConnell and the Senate Republicans handed a tax reduce that went to the rich and firms that didn’t create jobs or elevate wages. The tax reduce additionally blew a gap within the nationwide debt that can take generations to repair, so Republicans have to spare us all their pearl-clutching on affordability or solutions that individuals shouldn’t get assist throughout a pandemic.
Speaker Pelosi isn’t going to let McConnell and the Senate Republicans off the hook for his or her hypocrisy.
