The student said that the tax cuts are helping to put him through college. The House Minority Leader responds…
A Georgetown student eloquently confronted Sen. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on her infamous ‘crumbs’ comment on the Republican tax bill.
In January, Pelosi was widely criticized for saying that the savings from the Republican tax cuts and companies’ bonuses to workers amount to mere “crumbs” for the middle class.
On Tuesday, a Georgetown University student asked the Democratic leader if she still thought “crumbs” was a good way to describe benefits resulting from the tax law.
“As the son of small business owners, I know that it’s helped my parents hire more employees. It’s helped us pay off our mortgage, helped put me through college,” the student said. “Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as ‘crumbs?'”
She didn’t back down on her ‘crumbs’ comment, though.
“My statement was really a fuller statement that says while they provide a banquet for the top one percent, they are giving some crumbs to other people,” she said.

She then went on seemingly to decry the rising national debt and the cuts to social services and education.
She also says that a budget should reflect our national values and goes on about Medicare, Medicaid, and… the Farm Bill?
Watch Rep Nancy Pelosi’s defensive response:
She didn’t address the ‘crumbs’ that are helping put Sam through college other than the ‘I’m glad you’re benefiting from it’ right at the very end.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
