Wealthy elitist House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is taking heat for claiming that the $1000 bonuses companies are handing out due to the GOP tax cuts are mere crumbs.
“Maybe it’s a crumb if you live in Pacific Heights or the Sea Cliff neighborhood of San Francisco and you’re married to Paul Pelosi, maybe then it’s a crumb. But for most people it’s real money,” Laura Ingraham said.
Walmart has recently joined a growing list of companies who have decided to share the tax cut savings with employees. They have announced a plan to boost pay and give bonuses worth up to $1,000 to workers.
Walmart, who is the nation’s largest employer, is pointing to the new tax cut legislation as the reason for the move.
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic,” Pelosi said during a press briefing on Thursday.
“I would hope that with their big advantage of bringing money home at a very low rate that they would invest in infrastructure and things, but our experience has been that they will do dividends, do stock buybacks and things like that,” she continued. “I think it’s insignificant.”
We know how to create growth. We know how to create jobs. We know how to build strong futures for our children. Instead, Republicans forced through their #GOPTaxScam.

Ingraham blasted the “elitist” sentiments expressed by Pelosi, pointing to Waste Management giving $2,000 bonuses to about 34,000 workers in her “Angle” commentary on Fox.
“They say Trump doesn’t have both oars in the water? Nancy has lost the oars and can’t even find the water she’s so out of it.”
Ingraham said Democrats are in “something of a trick bag” with the economy humming and companies giving out bonuses due to the tax cuts.
Prior to the tax reform passage, Pelosi guaranteed that it would bring about “Armageddon” and “the end of the world.”
That prediction is now mocked by White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who declared the success of tax reform to be Pelosi’s “worst fear” coming true.
Yo! Pelosi! $1000 is not bread crumbs to me. It may be pocket change to you, to me it is a big deal!
