Bad News for IN Dems: IN Jobs Up & Unemployment Down

Michael Joyce - August 8, 2018

Nancy Pelosi admitted that the United States economy “by all indicators is doing well” thanks to the Republican tax bill, but still “enthusiastically” stands by her comments that the legislation was “armageddon for America.”

It's a shame that Hoosier Democrats like Joe Donnelly , Liz Watson , and  Mel Hall continue to side with Washington cronies like Nancy Pelosi and join in on the “armageddon” fearmongering over the historic Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. 

Fortunately for Hoosiers, the tax cuts passed and the state’s economy has been improving ever since.

Given this good news for Hoosier families, shouldn’t Indiana Democrats admit that their blatantly partisan opposition to the tax cuts is wrong?  For more on the booming American economy, see the latest from RNC Research here.​
