Wealthiest Woman In Congress Channels MLK To Criticize Balanced Budget Amendment

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi channeled the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thursday to attack the Balanced Budget amendment recently proposed by Republican members.

“I’m reminded in the course of the tax bill, the budget and now the so-called Balanced Budget amendment of Reverend King’s words,” Pelosi stated at her weekly press conference. “God never intended for any group of people to live in superfluous, inordinate wealth while others live in abject, deadening poverty.”


Pelosi’s words are particularly odd when you consider her own “superfluous, inordinate wealth.”

The richest woman in Congress and her husband have a combined net worth exceeding $100 million. (RELATED: Pelosi Proves She Wants To Pay As Little As Possible In Taxes)

Additionally, she has habitually called the $1,000 bonuses many companies chose to give employees after President Trump signed new tax cuts into law in 2017 “crumbs.”

Before leaving for Easter recess, Pelosi was even heckled over her deep pockets at a town hall in Arizona.
