With 227 Republican votes, the House approved the tax cut bill, taking a significant step to cutting taxes for most American households and businesses. No Democrats supported the measure.
During a press conference, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said: “It’s an all-out looting of America, the wholesale robbery of the middle class. The tax scam will go down again as one of the most scandalous acts of plutocracy in our history.”
She has also dismissed post-tax cut bonuses — some of which were up to $2000-$3000 — as “crumbs.”
“A number of bonuses–one of the bonuses was in a union contract and then they added a little more money to that. That same firm just told the employees they were going to be laying off 1,500 people and if they wanted to save their jobs, they could work 32 hours,” Pelosi said.
“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.”
But, The Democrats can’t lie their way out of this one. When people start seeing more money & better retirements, the Democrat narrative will fall apart.
Sarah Sanders slammed Pelosi for her efforts to downplay how millions of Americans are benefiting already from the tax cuts after yet another company- Best Buy announced that 100,000 of its employees would be getting a bonus as a direct result of the tax cut bill.
On Twitter, Sarah wrote:”100,000 Best Buy employees get Trump tax cut bonuses or as Nancy Pelosi likes to call them: “crumbs”

Actually, a thousand dollars is crumbs compared to Pelosi’s millions!
The fact is, Dems have no idea what the working class people of this country spend to survive. Nor do they care.
The Democrats want to keep the citizens of this country down from an economic standpoint and get the citizens highly reliant on the Federal Government so they can control every aspect of their lives and force whatever they want on them.
What do you think about Sanders’ tweet calling out Pelosi?
