Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz held a “town hall” meeting to complain about Americans getting a $1,000 bonus from their employers. Most people are adjusting to reality nicely, as having more money is nice (see Shock NYT Poll: Turns Out Americans Like Getting Tax Cuts and Millennials’ New Attitude on Tax Cuts Have Top Democrats Panicked…). The Democrat Party brain trust, however, thinks the real problem is not enough class warfare.
Something Ted Cruz isn’t going to let them forget. You shouldn’t either.
Next time the Democrats try to tell you Republicans are the party of the rich, remember how Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz wrote off $1,000 bonuses as crumbs… https://t.co/0gzrcCSrGa

Before we get to what Ted Cruz had to say, Debbie once asked people to share how an extra $40 per paycheck was helpful. As they say, life comes at you fast.
I found it.

So that’s who the Democrats are.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi repeated her complaint that it was just a “crumb,” and that corporate “fat cats” will get so much more.
And the former Democratic Party chief Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz dismissed $1,000 bonuses as chump change which won’t be worth much when taxed.
The Democrat Party is so out of touch when it comes to tax cuts, the government should fund a study. And who the hell still uses the phrase “fat cats”? Maybe Pelosi had the skin on her forehead pulled too tight, causing her brain’s software to glitch. She thinks it’s 1952.
Sure, $1,000 wouldn’t cover a week’s worth of botox. A $1,000 shopping spree at Neiman Marcus will get you replacement buttons for your Prada purse. $1,000 would just cover the tip at the most expensive DC restaurants.
But to everyday Americans, $1,000 is treating your family to a vacation. It’s a year’s worth of sports and dance lessons. It’s monthly family dinners. A few months of a car payment. A mortgage payment. Etcetera.
Groceries. Gas. Utilities. Hell, it’s an extra $1,000 you can lay around the house. Or cash it into singles, then throw it in the air ala Scrooge McDuck. You gotta do you, boo. Because it’s $1,000. Democrats want to convince you getting a bonus from your employer is a bad thing. They’re making 2018 about it.
I’ll take that fight. I’ll also take an extra $1,000.
