House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that the bonuses and higher wages that companies are giving their employees because of the GOP tax bill are “crumbs” and “pathetic,” during a press conference on Thursday.

A reporter asked the Pelosi what she thinks about the over 100 companies that are crediting the GOP tax bill as the reason why they can give employees bonuses and wage increases.

“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs they are giving to workers, to kind of put the schmooze is so pathetic, it’s so pathetic,” Pelosi told the reporter.

Pelosi concluded by telling the reporter that she thinks these bonuses and pay raises are “insignificant.”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) told CNBC that more than a million people have received more than a billion dollars between these bonuses and pay raises.

The Washington Examiner highlighted the over 100 companies that have given their employees bonuses, pay hikes, and increases in benefits as a result of the GOP tax bill.

Pelosi’s comments are another example of how out of touch the Democratic Party may appear with working-class Americans, many of who will benefit from these bonuses, pay hikes, and increases in benefits.
