Pelosi Calls Tax Bill 'Armageddon'

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi likes to describe the GOP tax reform legislation as the #GOPTaxScam.

Yet, she took it several steps further Monday, calling the Republican plan “the end of the world," according to Fox News reporter Chad Pergram. 

"This is Armageddon,” she added.

She quickly walked it back.

Guy inserted some common sense.

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.
