House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) admitted that the United States economy “by all indicators is doing well” because of the Republican tax bill during an interview with NBC Phoenix, but still “enthusiastically” stands by her comments that the legislation was “armageddon for America.”

NBC Phoenix’s Brahm Resnik asked Pelosi whether she still stands by her statement that the Republican tax bill was “armageddon for America,” despite the growing economy and low unemployment numbers.

“I stand by it enthusiastically. Because, you know what? It’s wonderful for people in the top one percent, and they say that the economy by all indicators is doing well,” Pelosi said. “But the biggest indicator for us is the size of the paycheck, and we are for the people. Lower health care costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government, and that bill is not about any of that.”

However, Pelosi’s claim that the GOP tax bill hasn’t resulted in bigger paychecks is inaccurate.

The Treasury Department estimated “that 90% of people who get a paycheck are likely to see more in take-home pay” because of the GOP tax bill.
