A student from Georgetown University recently called out House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for her “crumbs” comments, a dig on the Republican-led tax reform package that was passed earlier this year.

Gee, how strange. Who ever heard of a politician being upset about legislation that enables American families to keep a rather substantial amount of their money?

Welcome to the Twighlight Zone of Nancy’s brain! Let’s go ahead and throw the rest of the democrats in that zone also since not a single one voted for you to have a tax break.

The student pointed out that on a “macroeconomic level” our economy is actually growing under the Trump administration and asked Pelosi if she still believed the cuts were “crumbs” despite their obvious contributions to the slow, but steady rise in prosperity being experienced across the country.

If you listen closely you can hear the popping sounds of her head starting to explode. The student said:

“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 during a town hall at Georgetown. “Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan, on average Americans, as crumbs?”

And how did Pelosi respond? Pretty much exactly how you’d expect her to, doubling down on her own nonsense.

The Democratic representative stated that the tax benefits mostly went to the top one percent and that the middle class will end up paying more taxes in the long term.

“Here’s a tax bill that they advertise as a benefit for the middle class, and did you know 83 percent of the benefits of the tax bill go to the top 1 percent? In the life of the bill, 86 million middle class families will pay more taxes,” she said.

She went on to say the bill “mortgages” the “future of young Americans” since it adds to the national debt.

Yeah, try not to bust out laughing at the absurdity here. This is the same woman who helped jam through Obamacare and has lived her entire life on a platform of more and more spending.

Now she’s suddenly worried about the national debt? Right.

Strangely, unlike the unsubstantiated claims made by Pelosi, the actual evidence points to the middle class enjoying many benefits from the tax cuts. As it turns out, hundreds of companies and corporations handed out billions in bonuses and increased wages to employees as a direct result of the cuts.

As if that’s not enough, the average tax payer will see savings on their taxes in the hundreds. It’s a safe bet those folks aren’t complaining. I’m certainly not!
