After predicting that President Trump’s tax cut bill would become economic ‘Armageddon’ for America, Democrats are struggling to save face in the wake of spiking approval for the administration as economic numbers continue to astound.
It was immediately after the bill was signed that numerous corporations announced big, across the board bonuses for employees.
Nancy Pelosi’s reply? Those are ‘crumbs’.
A few thousand bucks in your pocket are crumbs? Of course, the leftist media is entirely ignoring her elitist declaration.
Make no mistake: had a Republican said the same of a Democrat tax bill, they’d be crucified.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
The establishment media have saved Democrats from embarrassment by refusing to cover their struggling attempts to explain away the positive economic effects the Republican tax bill delivered for the working class.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other leading Democrats predicted the tax bill would be a disaster for the working class — “Armageddon” is how Pelosi described it — only to see more than three million American workers received bonuses and pay raises as a result of the GOP tax cuts. Additionally, 90 percent of workers are expected to see an increase in take-home pay in 2018.
Pelosi, one of the wealthiest members of Congress, has consistently dismissed the bonuses that workers are receiving as “pathetic” and “crumbs.”
Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, former chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), similarly struggled to explain the bonuses when confronted about them at a town hall. Wasserman first claimed that she hadn’t “heard of any bonuses over $1,000,” even though tens of thousands of workers have received bigger bonuses than that. (Apple, for example, gave employees $2,500 bonuses.) After establishing that misleading premise, Wasserman Schultz then claimed that $1,000 doesn’t go “very far for anyone.”
