Six-figure ad highlights Pelosi’s latest vow to raise taxes if elected Speaker of the House

WASHINGTON – Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC),the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, released a new national ad featuring Nancy Pelosi’s vow to raise taxes if she was to become Speaker of the House of Representatives. The ad comes the same day Pelosi made the comments during a POLITICO Playbook interview. The six-figure buy will air on national cable and digital platforms.

“Nancy Pelosi is the gift that keeps on giving. From calling tax cuts and bonuses ‘crumbs’ to promising to raise Americans’ taxes, Pelosi continues to prove how out-of-touch she really is, and why she is the most divisive and unpopular politician in the country,” said CLF Executive Director Corry Bliss. “These comments further highlight the choice voters will have in November, a choice between one party that delivered on their promise to cut taxes and put more money back in your paycheck, or the other party that mocked you and vowed to raise your taxes.”

Nancy Pelosi: Well, the second part there is accurate.

(Laughter)

VO: It’s not funny.

If the Pelosi liberals win, you will pay higher taxes.
