Would $1,000 make a difference in your life?
Most of America would probably say yes, but Democratic leaders are claiming that bonuses of as much as $1,000 are still just a “crumb” that won’t go far.
On today’s show, Glenn and Stu listened to some startling quotes from former Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, criticizing the GOP tax reform bill.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has also slammed the bonuses corporations are giving to their employees after the tax bill passed, calling them “crumbs” compared to what the “fat cats” get.
“Frankly, if you look at the bonuses, which I haven’t heard of a corporate bonus more than $1,000 so far,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Which by the way is taxed, so it’s not $1,000. … I’m not sure that $1,000 (which is taxed, taxable) goes very far for almost anyone.”
So … is she also saying the government taxes every day Americans too much? What a concept.
