Nevada Dem Running for U.S. Senate Defends Pelosi’s ‘Crumbs’ Criticism of Bonuses, Wage Hikes

Democrats face an uphill battle to paint the recently passed tax reform package as bad for American workers. U.S. companies are giving away millions of dollars in bonuses and raising wages.

Still, Democrats are valiantly trying to paint this, a marked rise in wages and low unemployment, as somehow a bad thing.

House Minority Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) famously called the bonuses that dozens of major U.S. companies are giving out, “crumbs,” and this week, she actually got someone to buy into the baseless rhetoric.

Rep. Jacky Rosen (D-NV) is running for the Democratic nomination in Nevada’s U.S. Senate race. During an interview with The Nevada Independent, Rosen backed up Pelosi’s remarks:

Rosen did not dispute Pelosi’s characterization of the bonuses from the tax bill as “crumbs.”

“In the short term companies are excited about [permanent tax cuts], but I think in the long run you’re going to see companies buying back their stock, maybe hoarding capital paying back their dividends,” Rosen said.

If it were up to Rosen, millions of Americans, including the Nevadans she hopes to represent, would have never received bonuses upwards of $3,000 in some cases.

At an event in Florida last week, disgraced former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz said that $1,000 bonuses don’t “go very far” for Americans.

Are these the types of Democrats – Wasserman Schultz and Pelosi – that Rosen wants to be associated with as she tries to appeal to voters in her state?
