An unnamed Republican said the GOP doesn’t care about hungry children in America and called the poor invisible, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claimed during her address Saturday at the California Democrats State Convention.
“I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital lifelines for struggling families and really hungry children,” Pelosi told the crowd, according to Breitbart News. “This colleague’s response was telling in its blunt nature and it’s stunning in its honestly. What he said was, ‘To the Republican caucus, these people you are talking about are invisible, and the Republican caucus is indifferent to them.’”
Pelosi used that same language last month at her weekly press briefing to describe the GOP’s indifference to the poor, except that time, she said the “invisible” description sounded like a line from a U2 concert, Breitbart reported.
