Pelosi: ‘Companies Giving Bonuses After Tax Cut Are PATHETIC, It’s INSIGNIFICANT!’

Answering questions at her weekly press conference, Nancy Pelosi took time to insult all of the companies that have announced bonuses and salary raises for their employees in the wake of the Trump tax cuts.

The Democratic House Minority Leader from California showed her true nature as a snake who doesn’t care if Americans get a better deal if it’s the Republicans and the Trump White House who deliver it.

So far, several big companies with employee numbers in the tens of thousands have announced bonuses and wage increases as a direct response to the Tax Cut And Reform Bill which was passed just before Christmas. The most recent announcement has been from Walmart who told media that employees who have been with their company would be eligible for a $1,000 bonus and less experienced employees would receive smaller amounts. They also announced financial help for employees who adopt children, saying that the tax reform bill gives them “the opportunity to be more competitive globally and to accelerate plans for the U.S.” by allowing them to invest in their staffers.

Pelosi was asked by a reporter asked her to respond to the “number of companies” who said that the new tax structure was the reason they would be handing down goodies, to which she replied that:

“The number of bonuses that were given, one of the bonuses was already in a union contract, and they added a little more money to that.”

She didn't say that when Obama gave everyone $300 or $600 as a "welcome me" gift in his first term, calling it economic stimulus.

If I remember correctly, Obama's "gift" was only $45, not $300 or $600.

Nancy is worth 200 million dollars I don't think she should be allowed to comment on this subject. She doesn't understand what it is like to be poor. How could she?

12:37 I agree and Bush did the same thing. Twice

The only difference here is that the money came out of the US coffers. Meaning he only gave you your money back.

Today, that money came from the corporations.

Huge flipping difference.

You are a pathetic excuse for a humanoid.

1237 and 144
Not everybody received Barry's gift of $300 / $600
Any person who earned enough money to support one's self did not qualify for the reduction in taxes

And by the way 144, the US government is a criminal enterprise and spends money it does not have.
It commits fraud with every Bond issuance.

The money you and I pay to the IRS belongs to the secret owners of the Federal Reserve Bank as interest due for bonds

It was Bush that gave everyone $300.

Why do these rich thieves keep on working at their age? They must think they are relevant and we can't exist without them. Also greed, they are hungry for it all and keep working where they can continue to steal. I don't understand why we keep them in office. Guess it's true what one com-mentor on here says often. Sheep!

1:44 The money is coming from the taxpayers as it a result of the corporations not paying higher taxes. Bonuses are a feel good scam. One time hit. Want to help the employees, give them a $.50 raise that will be built upon each year.

Just another rich politician who is out of touch with hard working citizens living paycheck to paycheck. I can't imagine any Walmart worker being unhappy with at least $1,000. It may be chump change to Pelosi, but it's a fortune to the working class.
