As Cameron Cawthorne puts it in Washington Free Beacon:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday continued to slam the recently passed Republican tax reform bill, calling the wage increases and bonuses “crumbs” during her weekly press briefing.
Walmart was the most recent company to announce a wage increase and bonuses as a result of the sweeping legislation, which included a slashing of the corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 percent.
“A number of companies are attributing the tax bill for being able to give higher wages to their employees as well as being able to give a number of bonuses to their employees. How do you respond to that?” a reporter asked.
Nancy Pelosi appeared to be talking about AT&T when she responded by downplaying the bonuses and saying that it was already part of a union contract. She went on to say that the same firm told their employees that they would be laying off 1,500 people and that if they wanted to save their jobs then they would have to work 32 hours per week.
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving workers to kind of put the schmooze on is so pathetic. It’s so pathetic,” Pelosi said.
“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. I think it’s insignificant,” Pelosi added.
This is not the first time that Pelosi has been critical of the Republican tax reform legislation. Pelosi expressed dramatic concern last month about the tax bill, calling it “Armageddon” during a press briefing.
“The debate on health care is life, death. This is Armageddon,” Pelosi said. “This is a very big deal, because you know why? There’s really a very hard way to come back from this.”
She’s also called it the worst legislation in the history of Congress.
The Washington Free Beacon sent a request for comment to Pelosi’s office and did not receive a response.[end]
Then there’s this from Kyle Olson in his American Mirror:
Nancy Pelosi has just returned to Washington, and she brought her bizarre behavior back with her.
As the House Minority Leader returned to her weekly press conference, she was seen repeating words, having trouble saying “Martin Luther King” and slurring “prescription drugs.”
Talking about how Democrats used Rev. Martin Luther King’s legacy to push socialized medicine, Pelosi had trouble speaking.
She said Democrat protests were “inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King,” tripping over the words.
And so declares Nancy Pelosi, the multi-millionaire woman of the multi-millionaire husband, carrying around with her the extensive perks, privileges, and insider-trading knowledge of goodness knows how many lucrative deals hiding away in the swamp for these corrupt politicians?
Seems to me the call for president Trump to step forward and reveal his current state of health is a mite hypocritical to say the least, wouldn’t you say? Methinks there are currently many occupants of both Houses of Congress from whom signs of dementia/alzheimer’s, sexual perversions and everything else in between, have been emanating ad nauseum from those hallowed chambers for decades and decades. Ted Kennedy, Chris Dodd, Bill Clinton, LBJ, etc etc etc., come immediately to mind, while not forgetting the raging lunatic liberal left, especially the flawed media and those doctors who insist on testing Trump for dementia while floating on real idiots squawking in the swamp’s cuckoo’s nest.
Wonder what kind of examination Nancy Pelosi with-the-bloodshot-eyes and hundreds of other congressional miscreants would turn out to reveal?
Consider that these pathological liars have been talking about lowering prescription drugs for the last 40 years and they’ve yet to do it, so why is Pelosi up there making all these banal and hackneyed statements? The professor of psychiatry from Yale should be analyzing Pelosi’s mental state, not President Trump’s.
In closing, and while I think of it, let me throw Maxine Waters at you as a prime example of how power corrupts (and yes, I know there are hundreds more like her). The woman has been in office for four decades (14 years in the California Assembly and 27 in congress) and her reputation as a Congresswoman is abysmal. Waters’ situation is bigger than Democrats vs. Republicans, as it speaks to a system which allows the elites to get away with scandals, corruption, and dishonesty.
Thank God that the Trump Train has left the station and is barreling down the track to MAGA…
