In a shocking twist, a GOP lawmaker recently decided to stick it to the Minority Leader of the Senate. As it turns out, Republican Representative Todd Rokita trolled Nancy Pelosi by hiding something a little extra inside of a recent bill he just proposed — and it was meant specifically for the Democrat.
Democrats really can’t stand President Donald Trump. We’ve seen countless examples, but the biggest proof is in what they’re complaining about. In fact, they hate Trump so much that we’ve even seen them whine about things that benefit the American people as if it’s hurting them.
Despite the fact that Americans are doing better than they have been in quite some time and that they’re now being able to keep even more of their own hard-earned money, the left still bashes the man responsible for such a reality. Sadly, Senate Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi did just that after President Trump announced his tax cuts.
Although companies immediately began to announce major bonuses to their employees because of the tax cuts, the left still had the audacity to complain. For those who need a refresher, here’s just a small sample of those who have come forward with bonuses:
AT&T gave a $1,000 bonus to over 200,000 employees, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
Wells Fargo said it was boosting its minimum wage to $15, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.Fifth Third Bancorp said it would give over $13,500 employees a bonus in addition to raising the minimum wage to $15, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
Southwest and American Airlines promised a $1,000 bonus to employees, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
Disney said it was giving 125,000 employees a $1,000 bonus, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
Hostess Brands announced it’s handing out a $1,250 bonus to over 1,000 hourly employees AND giving out delicious free snacks, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
Lowe’s is handing out bonuses of up to $1,000 to 260,000 employees, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.
UPS has announced more than $12 billion in investments, thanks to the Republican tax cuts.

In all, 346 companies have announced bonuses to over 3.5 million Americans, with each of those numbers still on the rise. Unfortunately, Democrats are bashing Trump’s success. Nancy Pelosi would only make things worse by referring to the bonuses — ranging between $1,000 and $2,500 apiece — as “crumbs,” even saying they were “pathetic.”
Of course, this only goes to show how disconnected the rich millionaire is from the average American, who she’s supposed to represent. I mean, you can buy a lot with $1,000. That’s a lot of groceries or tanks of gas. Heck, it’s even a few car loan or mortgage payments. Long story short, it’s anything but “crumbs” to ordinary Americans.
Too bad for Pelosi, Rep. Todd Rokita, a GOP lawmaker from Indiana, just trolled her big time. As it turns out, the man just came up with the perfect way to use her own words against her, and he used a new bill he was introducing to do it.
Rep. Todd Rokita (R-Ind.) is getting ready to introduce the “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings,” or the “CRUMBS” Act, which is in direct response to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) calling tax reform induced bonuses “crumbs.” [Source: IJ Review]
In short, he introduced the “CRUMBS Act” in hopes of making the bonuses being given under Trump’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act tax-free. In other words, Americans get to keep even more of their money.
Although the left wants you to think that President Donald Trump is bad news for this country, Americans just keep winning under his reign. The second Democrats get with the program is the second they can join in the fun of helping out their constituents. Until then, though, we’ll continue to see people flee from the Democrat Party as they realize the cancer that it is.
