House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi this afternoon snapped at Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, after he smirked at her assertion that Congress would abandon efforts to extend the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.
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.
As someone in the background vocally chuckled in the background, Pelosi accused Rep. Pete Sessions of smirking.
“Do I detect your smirk to mean that you don’t think Republicans will vote for middle income tax cuts Mr. Sessions?” she shot back.
