Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ripped President Trump’s decision to cut the payroll tax for millions of working Americans during the Coronavirus pandemic last week; ignoring her previous praise for Barack Obama’s pledge to do the same thing.
“This is necessary because our economy and our people need this boost. For individual families, 160 million Americans, this will be a boost. The demand that will be injected into the economy when people spend this money will be a job creator. A temporary measure to help us,” said Pelosi years ago.
“Clearly he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. The fact is that it takes time to figure out,” said Pelosi in 2020. “Right now, we want to address the needs of the American people. My advisors tell me this is absurdly Unconstitutional. Right now the focus has to be on meeting the needs of the people.”

'NO BIG DEAL': Pelosi Refuses to Condemn Colleague Who Called Trump ‘Motherf***er’
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi refused to condemn a fellow Democrat who viciously called President Trump a ‘motherf***er’ just hours after being sworn in; saying “I’m not in the censorship business.”
Pelosi was asked to comment on Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s fiery speech at an event hosted by MoveOn.org Thursday night; telling a crowd of supporters the Democrats are “going to impeach that motherf***er!”
“I probably have a generational reaction to it,” Pelosi said. “But in any event, I’m not in the censorship business. I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language. I don’t … establish any language standards for my colleagues, but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”
“Generationally, that would not be language I would use, but nonetheless, I don’t think we should make a big deal of it,” she added.
