Skip to comments.GOP rep unveils 'Crumbs Act' to make bonuses tax-free, in swipe at Pelosi
Posted on 02/14/2018 2:17:23 AM PST by Libloather
A Republican lawmaker is set to unveil legislation that would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump's tax reform plan tax-free -- and took a jab at House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi with the bill's name.
Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has dubbed his bill the "Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings" -- or "CRUMBS" Act. Pelosi, D-Calif., famously referred to the bonuses as "crumbs" in criticizing the tax plan last month.
"Americans are receiving thousands of dollars in bonuses and more money in their paychecks thanks to President Trump's tax reform, but out-of-touch Democratic leaders believe they only amount to crumbs," Rokita said in a statement. "The CRUMBS Act will let Americans keep more of the money they receive as a result of President Trump's tax reform, and allow them, not the government, to choose how best to spend their bonuses.

Pelosi own a couple businesses in Cali.......
Is she giving her employees raises and bonuses from her tax savings?
They’re not democratic leaders. They’re democrat leaders.
Yep. Of the Democrat Party.
Brilliant move a mid-term election year.
Oh that is brilliant, lol! I can only imagine the meme’s Tiny Tim wanting more crumbs etc, this will take on a life of it’s own in the digital age, she will be ridiculed like Alinsky never dreamed of.

Let’s ask the San/Fran Chronicle political reporter:

I got no bonus from my employer, but I did get a $190 per month raise, and the natural gas company dropped its rates due to the tax law. MAGA.
I would bet $100.00 that she won’t give her employees ANYTHING!
Probably right, plus how many of them might be illegals? ICE should do a workplace compliance visit and park a few vans in plain view at the entrance to her winery.
Bet he stayed up all night coming up with that acronym.
Build the **** wall!
I ***LOVE*** IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also loved Trumps comments during the SOTU where he said *And $4,000 is a lot of money* and looks right over at the dems.
Bonus taxes are grotesque.
Nice thinking outside the box. I hope every Democratic votes against it.
This only makes the Republicans and Trump look petty and silly. I’m against it.
(my imitation of the NeverTrumpers here who won’t support Trump’s military parade)

WTF has the ‘military parade’ to do w/ this STUPID (yes, petty, silly and a waste of time)?
How ‘bout the (R)N(C) do something of SUBSTANCE for a change:
- REDUCE the size/scope of govt
- Border wall funding
- Clamp down on aiding/abetting of govt of illegal aliens
- Reigning in Judicial activism
- Digging into the silent coup of ‘16
No. Instead they piss away the (FEW working hours they HAVE...what a ‘job’, eh!?) day on election-year jabs, of a seat in a staunchly (D) district.
Where was this lingo in the tax-cuts to begin? WHY wasn’t it there? Hell, why didn’t we ALL get tax cuts (not the ‘revenue neutral’, ‘benevolence of employer’ facade)?
Nope, just more paperwork\time-wasted for the govt’s fav. straw-man: BIZ. Or The People having to stand MORE hours, during tax time, to scratch back what they can from the death-grip of Fedzilla’s IRS\Treasury.
Is there nothing the knee-pad brigade will not approve of, as long as there’s an (R)?
we could get it going by sending a box of crumb cake to Democrats, starting with Polousy.
She gives them the crumbs from the bottom of a bag of Doritos or maybe just tortillas
I like it.
