House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has become a total embarrassment to her party with her increasingly bizarre and unhinged behavior. This week, Pelosi raised even more questions about her health when she said the number of Americans relying on food and housing subsidies was not decreasing, even though it is.
“This is one unusual time … where the unemployment rate is down but the dependence on subsidies, whether its food insecurity, housing subsidies … has not gone down,” Pelosi said, according to The Daily Caller.
In reality, reports from the Department of Agriculture shows that the number of Americans relying on the Supplemental Nutrition Program, or SNAP, decreased 7.8 percent from October 2016 to February 2018. On top of that, the amount of individuals receiving housing choice vouchers has also decreased, with 1.2 percent less people receiving housing choice vouchers in 2017 than in 2016.
In addition, the federal government spent an average of seven dollars less per person on vouchers in 2017 than in 2016, saving our country $84 million.
It’s no wonder that even many Democrat lawmakers have admitted that Pelosi has become a huge liability to her party. Some Democrats are now calling for Pelosi to step down for the good of the party.
“We need leadership change,” New York Democratic Rep. Kathleen Rice recently said. “It’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go, and the entire leadership team.”
Massachusetts Democratic Rep. Seth Moulton agreed with her.
“This is certainly something that we have to discuss because it’s clear that, I think, across the board in the Democratic Party we need new leadership. It’s time for a new generation of leadership in the party,” he said.
Perhaps Donald Trump may be right when he says that Pelosi is the biggest asset the Republican Party has right now!
