In 2013, Democrats called Republicans who refused to get on board with the Obama administration’s […]

Pelosi slams company bonuses as ‘crumbs’ despite once praising $40 tax cut

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday slammed President Trump’s tax reform that led to companies giving as large as $2,000 bonuses as “crumbs,” despite praising Obama-era $40 tax cut to workers as a “victory for America” in 2011.
