On Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., declared that the GOP tax bill is literally the end of the world.
“There’s really a very hard way to come back from this,” she said, calling the bill “Armageddon.”
According to the Daily Caller:
Speaking to reporters after the motion to send the bill to conference, the former Speaker of the House said, “This is the end of the world. The debate on health care is live/death, this is armageddon. This is a very big deal. Because, you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this.”
Many liberals have been treating the Republican tax cut bill as if it was the end of the world. The New York Times editorial board encouraged readers to contact their Senators to oppose the cuts, calling the reductions “A historic tax heist.”
She quickly tried to walk back her comments, but it was too late.
Pelosi tries to clean up her apocalyptic proclamation that the tax bill is “Armageddon.”: The only reason it isn’t the end of the world is that America is a great country

Here’s video of her insane comments:
House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., tried to walk back her comments, claiming she didn’t really mean it’e the literal end of the world, The Hill reported.
“I’m not going to say it’s the end of the world and Nancy did not mean it’s the end of the world, but one ought not to diminish the consequences of passing this bill.”
Despite her apoplectic episode over the GOP’s tax plan, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer accepted President Trump’s invitation to discuss the budget this Thursday to try and agree on a spending bill, a day before the government is set to run out of money.
She and Schumer rejected the first invitation after Trump cast doubt on any potential progress with a tweet that criticized the Democrats’ agenda.
The House and Senate have passed separate versions of their tax reform plans. GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy shared on Twitter his hope that the two chambers can reconcile those differences and get it to Trump’s desk before Christmas.
Before we can put a final bill on @POTUS desk, the House and Senate have to sit down, hash out the few differences between our bills, and come to a unified consensus. Once we do, the American people will spend next yr w/ more $ in their pockets and an even brighter future ahead.

This kind of rhetoric is nothing new for Pelosi. In June, for example, she falsely claimed “hundreds of thousands” would die if the GOP health care bill was passed.
According to Susana Victoria Perez:
As GOP senators prepare to repeal and replace Obamacare, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi warns that the lives of thousands of Americans are at risk if their health bill passes.
Pelosi appeared In an interview on “CBS This Morning” where she said, “Hundreds of thousands of people will die if this bill passes.”
The California Democrat also added that there’s no room to fix the legislation and instead Democrats and Republicans should focus on improving Obamacare, “instead of sabotaging it.”
Apparently, it’s all academic, since we’re all now destroyed…
