House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested in a Tuesday tweet that California Republicans who supported the recently passed GOP tax bill don’t belong living in the state.

Pelosi referenced a quote from California Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, which called the tax bill “evil in the extreme” and told Republicans that their “ideology doesn’t come first.”


“I want every single California Republican to understand this. Your ideology doesn’t come first. Your party doesn’t come first. The PEOPLE come first,” Pelosi said. “If you fail to recognize that, you don’t belong here.”

Pelosi’s tweet comes as many Democrats are upset that Senate Republican’s passed a massive tax reform bill Friday evening.

The house minority leader claimed Monday the Republican tax bill is the end of the world. Calling the bill “armageddon,” Pelosi said, “there’s really a very hard way to come back from this.” (RELATED: Senate Passes Massive Tax Reform Legislation)

“This is the end of the world. The debate on health care is live or death, this is armageddon. This is a very big deal. Because, you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill Monday.
