The Trump economy is booming, but that’s not good enough for Nancy Pelosi.
The May unemployment rate was a stunningly low 3.8 percent, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Black unemployment is the lowest ever: 5.9 percent, the Washington Examiner reports.
But instead of celebrating the incredible economic activity, the House Speaker wannabe shrugged.
“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” the House Minority Leader said in a statement.
Republicans’ cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families’ premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO. Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids. At the same time, the President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant.
“Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation,” she claimed.
It’s not the first time Pelosi was sour about positive economic news.
She had a similar response during Trump’s first speech to Congress last year.
Trump ran down a list of companies that have announced investments and job additions in the last several weeks.
“Since my election, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, General Motors, Sprint, Softbank, Lockheed, Intel, Walmart and many others have announced that they will invest billions and billions of dollars in the United States and create tens of thousands of new American jobs,” Trump said.
As many stood to applaud, Pelosi remained seated with a sour look on her face.
Pelosi couldn’t find joy in dozens of companies passing along the tax cut savings onto employees in the form of bonuses, routinely calling the $1,000-or-more checks “crumbs.”
