Despite record employment, lower unemployment, record Hispanic employment, and an increase in manufacturing jobs in July, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) found something to criticize: tax cuts and wealthy Americans.

“July’s jobs report shows that the wealthiest 1 percent and big corporations continue to hoard the benefits of the GOP Tax Scam for the rich, while American workers are denied the bigger paychecks they deserve,” Pelosi claimed in a statement Friday.
