Chris Pack | February 11, 2020

Now that Nancy Pelosi fancies herself a constitutionalist in the twilight of her political career, she needs to brush up on Article I, Section 7, Clause 1 of the Constitution: 

“All bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives”

And be sure to keep these headlines in mind the next time she holds a press conference bellyaching about the executive budget proposal:

NRCC Comment: “If Nancy Pelosi is truly this distraught over President Trump’s budget proposal then she should stop complaining and get to work on a budget of her own.” -NRCC Spokesman Chris Pack
