Republicans Learn How to Fight: Create ‘Crumbs Act’ to Hit Pelosi Hard
The Republicans suck at marketing.
If you don’t believe me, then ask yourself how the party that freed the slaves is not credited with the act. Moreover, how did the Democratic Party whose members hung black people and started the KKK become the party that black people adore?
But things have changed with the election of Donald Trump. Trump’s tactics for dealing with the Left emboldens Republicans. Because Trump meets you in the middle of the street, takes off his jacket and tie, and commences to kicking that Leftist ass.
And other Republicans are paying attention. So when Nancy Pelosi called bonuses paid to employees due to President Trump’s tax plan, “crumbs”, Republicans seized the day.
Did SCOTUS make the right decision on medical mandates for large businesses?
Thus, according to Fox News, Republicans now offer the Crumb Act:
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
Rokita’s bill would make bonuses received by workers in 2018 tax-free up to $2,500. Since tax reform was signed into law this past December, multiple companies have given out bonuses and pay raises in anticipation of increased tax savings.
What a great political and marketing move.
Tying “crumbs” around the necks of Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats is brilliant. In fact, I’d like to hear President Trump call Pelosi and the Democrats “crumbs” for a bit, and make the word even more synonymous with the Party of Evil.
Further, what this move does is reinforce to the American public that Republicans have your back when it comes to your paycheck. The bill puts incentives for companies to bonus employees. Thus, employees work harder.
As for who would have been impacted by the Crumbs Act, the article continues.
According to a tally by Americans for Tax Reform, 346 companies have given workers bonuses or raises or increased contributions to employees’ 401(k). Those companies include AT&T, which gave $1,000 bonuses to 200,000 employees; automaker Fiat Chrysler, which gave at least 60,000 workers bonuses worth up to $2,000; and moving company U-Haul, where more than 28,000 full and part-time employees received bonuses ranging from $500 to $1,200.
I love seeing politicians take bold moves to Make America Great Again.
As much as I hate bureaucracy, it’s nice to see policy innovation that actually helps the taxpayers.
When the Trump presidency sadly ends, the Republicans will have much to market. The death of Obamacare will be a huge win, despite the media’s attempt to sway people otherwise. The tax cuts will be the death knell for the Democrats, and they certainly see the error of their ways.
Soon the Republicans will brag about America’s trade policy, as markets open in China and elsewhere, and we see the trade gap diminish. And there will be many other wins, particularly the biggest win of draining the swamp of deceitful politicians with self-indulgent goals.
What we earn is not crumbs. Americans work hard, and not for crumbs, but for pride. And no matter what the task at hand, from the janitor at the hospital to the surgeon, every job is vital.
Democrat politicians don’t know real work. Which is why they deride our jobs, as they steal our “crumbs”. But what Donald Trump proves is you can’t steal our American Spirit.
Kudos to The Crumbs Act.
