During a speech on the House floor Wednesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was not at all happy with Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) for allegedly smirking during her speech.
And she let him know in no uncertain terms:
The moment occurred after Rep. Pelosi claimed that Congress would “abandon efforts to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy,” as Charlie Spiering puts it.
“Pelosi framed the debate in terms of a ‘middle income tax cut’ asserting that two-thirds of the House would vote in favor of the idea,” he adds.
That’s when someone in the House audibly chuckled.
“Do I detect your smirk to mean that you don’t think Republicans will vote for middle income tax cuts Mr. Sessions?” an irritated Pelosi snapped.
