MSNBC reported Monday on a futile protest of the Republican tax reform bill that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) skipped out on.
Reporter Garret Haake was on the scene of a Capitol Hill protest and remarked, "these protests have never been like what we saw with the healthcare law."
"This particular protest was supposed to start at 3 p.m.," Haake said at 3:10 p.m. ET. "Supposed to feature Nancy Pelosi and supposed to have hundreds of people, and none of those things are going to end up being true."
Haake was standing immediately outside the door of the room where the protest was scheduled to occur, and where a few people appeared bored.
"But it is increasingly likely that the passage of this tax bill is more or less a foregone conclusion at this point," he said.
