Pelosi Uses Vegas Hospital Visit to Trash Trump

Originally intending to meet with hospital workers who saved dozens of lives after the mass shooting earlier this month, Pelosi used the visit for partisan politics.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi visited with doctors and staff at University Medical Center in Las Vegas on Tuesday to discuss the facility’s life-saving efforts after the mass shooting there on October 1.

But while that may have been the original purpose of the meeting, Pelosi used the Vegas tragedy to inject partisan politics into health care, according to the Nevada Independent.

Pelosi was critical of President Donald Trump’s announcement last week that he would end Obamacare’s cost sharing reduction payments, which subsidize insurance companies so they can provide coverage to low-income people.

Making Pelosi’s political attacks look worse, a bipartisan agreement between Sens. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN) was announced the same day as her visit.

More bizarrely, Pelosi used the hospital visit to attack Republicans’ tax reform efforts. She claimed it would cost $3 trillion and that economic growth would not help pay for the cuts, a key provision in the GOP plan.

“It will change who we are as a country,” she said. “This, for us, is Armageddon.”
