House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi reportedly wants to honor Martin Luther King Jr. this weekend by protesting the recently-enacted tax bill.
Natalie Andrews, a Wall Street Journal reporter, tweeted Thursday that Democrats will hold “teach-ins” across the country this weekend about the “GOP tax scam.”

Several people pointed out the inanity of honoring a civil rights leader by talking about taxes.
I am surprised she didn’t work in Net Neutrality. MLK was big on that

Others pointed out that the vast majority of people will receive tax cuts under the new plan, plus a good amount of companies are giving employees raises, additional benefits, and bonuses.
Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi and Democrats are honoring MLK with “teach-ins” to tell people with high paychecks how lowering taxes is bad for them. LOL. https://t.co/85lLpWcKkV
