Nancy Pelosi Just Might Be Insane
The Democrats' leader in the House, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, is either dishonest, drunk, or losing her mind.
Soopermexican caught this tweet from Pelosi, which he calls "brutal stupidity."
An American family can't just change their address to avoid paying taxes. @HouseGOP, why can corporations? Let's put the #MiddleClassFirst!

As the multimillionaire Pelosi surely knows, individuals and corporations (which are artificial people under the law) can change their addresses and thereby change their tax burdens. It happens every day. I know that from personal experience. I moved from high-tax Maryland to low-tax Texas a few years back and gave myself a very nice raise and bought a bigger house than I'd had up north even though my salary at the time didn't change much. Dollars go farther in Texas than they do in California, in part because Texas doesn't tax its citizens violently and with prejudice. That's why so many of Pelosi's fellow Californians and their companies are fleeing her state for Texas. It happens every day.
So, brutal stupidity. Or she's just lying to her low-information voter base. Or she's drunk or has lost her mind and is raving crazy loony tunes nuts. You make the call.
We're not done yet, though, as you'll see on the next page.
