"When they get something like a $1000 bonus at Christmas time because of this tax cut, it's hardly crumbs", said the Speaker of the House. "I think it's insignificant", she added.
"I was sad and surprised she said that".
Though lower tax rates won't kick in until February, Americans are already starting to feel the benefits-through higher wages, big bonuses, and low unemployment rates.
Pelosi's comment was more than just a quip. Comcast officials said that they wand to spend "well in excess of $50 billion over the next five years investing in infrastructure to radically improve and extend our broadband plant and capacity, and our television, film and theme park offerings".
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi joked on Thursday that "five white guys" were leading talks on immigration reform - in a quip that went over like a lead balloon with her own top deputy. "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 all start working 32 hours", she said.
"Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said, apparently referencing the "Five Guys" burger joints. Second, it looks pretty clear that Pelosi doesn't have confidence in either Hoyer or Durbin to negotiate, or she wouldn't have made that remark.
Although Pelosi criticized the group for its lack of diversity, Hoyer helped the chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, Democratic Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham of New Mexico, crash the large bipartisan meeting on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program earlier this week. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done", his statement read.
Democrats think they can get away with this racist crap because they believe their pandering to minority voters makes the immune to criticism on the subject of race.
