Marvel at the wisdom of the woman who the Democratic party is officially committed to making Speaker of the House again:
An American family can’t just change their address to avoid paying taxes. @HouseGOP, why can corporations? Let’s put the #MiddleClassFirst!
— Nancy Pelosi (@NancyPelosi) September 12, 2014
…Having worked in New York while living in New Jersey, I can say with some authority: madam, you are smoking the crack. Relative tax burdens are in fact a factor that goes into deciding where to live. It’s why people move to the suburbs. It’s why people find a job in a place where property taxes are lower. It’s why some people commute for two hours just to get to work. Then again, considering just how massive a beneficiary of privilege Nancy Pelosi is – it’s amazing what being the child of a Maryland political family can do for your public policy career, yes? – we should just be grateful that she didn’t call us ‘peasants.’
Betcha she thought it, though.
