House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is back at it. While speaking to a group of reporters, she downplayed unemployment rate and played up the importance of consumer confidence. She also spoke of the Dems' plan to increase it. There is only one problem with this: consumer confidence is at an 18-year high.

Just last Friday the jobs report showed that unemployment is at 3.8%, which happens to be the lowest it has been in 50 years.

Per Daily Wire:

"Well, as I said, unemployment rate is one indication," Pelosi said. "The fact is, and this has happened before, that people say, 'Oh my goodness, that people are saying the unemployment rate is down, why isn’t my purchasing power increasing?'"

"So, this isn’t just about the unemployment rate, it’s about wages rising in our country, so that consumer confidence is restored," Pelosi continued. "Because our economy will never fully reach its possibilities unless we increase the consumer confidence and that can only be increased by a better deal, better jobs, better wages, better future, and lowering costs to families — whether its prescription drugs, by really lowering the cost of prescription drugs — and that list goes on."

Unfortunately for Pelosi, consumer confidence is at an 18-year high.

How many times will Pelosi make herself look like a fool? Time and time again she says something that completely contradicts the point she is trying to make.
