Nancy Pelosi’s statement after Friday’s jobs report sounds like the paranoid rantings of a lunatic stuck too long on an island. Let’s call this one ‘Pelosi Island’.

Pelosi’s statement starts by saying “May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch. Republicans’ cruel, cynical health care sabotage campaign is already spiking families’ premiums by double digits and pushing millions off their coverage, according to the nonpartisan CBO. Big Pharma continues to hoard the benefits of the GOP tax scam, using their handouts to further enrich executives and shareholders instead of lowering prescription drug costs for seniors and sick kids. At the same time, the President’s reckless policies are exploding gas prices, wiping out the few meager gains that some families should have received from the GOP tax scam, as wages remain stagnant.”

Wow! Ms. Pelosi is totally bitter. First, if that Pelosi keeps showing up to criticize good news, Democrats might actually lose seats in the House. People don’t vote for sourpusses to run Congress. Next, she’s just flat wrong about wages remaining stagnant, The official BLS report said “In May, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 8 cents to $26.92. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 71 cents, or 2.7 percent.”

The tax cuts, combined with the wage growth, more than offset the increase in gas prices. Factor in the 542 companies that gave their employees bonuses, improved their benefits or who contribute more to their employees’ 401(k) plan and American workers are far better off than they were during the Obama administration. It isn’t even close, in fact.

This paragraph is unintended humor:

Democrats know that the American people deserve A Better Deal, with Better Jobs, Better Wages and a Better Future. We are committed to creating millions of new good-paying jobs and raising wages, lowering the soaring cost of living for families and giving every American the tools to succeed in the 21st Century economy. Democrats will never stop fighting for the hard-working middle class families who are the backbone of our nation.

Denial isn’t just a river in Egypt. People abandoned the Democratic Party in 2016 because they finally found someone who’d fight for them, not Big Labor or Big Government. They left the Democratic Party in droves because of the Party’s focus on identity politics instead of pocketbook issues.

The Democrats still don’t have an appealing economic message, instead mumbling their way through a PR campaign about “a Better Deal.” That type of gibberish won’t appeal to anyone. Just watch this, then tell me what’s appealing about it:

Getting shipwrecked on Pelosi Island isn’t exactly appealing. In fact, Ms. Pelosi looks rather discombobulated.

    She obviously does not understand that it is her party of environment whack jobs that won’t allow access to easily accessible oil or the building of new pipelines or refineries, that has caused oil to go up thus increasing gas prices. I hope this dope keeps flapping her gums because it is only good advertising for the GOP.
