House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is backpedaling off her recent comments that labeled worker bonuses and higher wages as “pathetic crumbs” to average Americans; now claiming that Democrats are “thankful whenever workers get bonuses.”
The former Speaker of the House is changing her tune after months of “crumby” comments, with recent polls showing a surge in support for both the GOP and President Trump heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
“Certainly we are thankful whenever workers get bonuses. But it is *incredibly* telling that companies by-and-large chose to give out one-time bonuses, and not long term raises. #GOPTaxScam” tweeted Pelosi.
Nancy’s new rhetoric is in stark contrast to comments she’s repeated since earlier this year; slamming American corporations for giving workers “crumbs” from their “banquet tables” following the GOP-sponsored tax cuts.
“The bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to put the schmooze on is so pathetic, it’s pathetic,” she told reporters in January.
