Student Confronts Nancy Pelosi Over ‘Crumbs’ Comment — Tax Cuts ‘Helped Put Me Through College’

A student at Georgetown University confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Tuesday over her infamous “crumbs” comment.

The student brought up the multiple times that the California Democrat referred to the GOP tax cuts as “crumbs” for the middle class, saying, “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.”

WATCH:

“On a macro economic level, the economy’s growing, wages are rising for the first time in years,” he continued. “Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as crumbs?”

Pelosi answered in part, “My statement was really a fuller statement that says while they provide a banquet to the top one percent, they are giving some crumbs to other people.”

She also asked the student, “Did you know 83 percent of the benefits of the tax bill go to the top one percent? 83 percent of the benefits, to the top one percent. In the life of the bill, 86 million middle class families will pay more taxes.”

    So during the 6 of 8 years that the Democrats were in the majority under Obama, why didn’t they come up with a tax bill? Why didn’t they fix Obamacare instead of just sitting back and watching it implode. Why didn’t they come up with a good immigration policy to keep the terrorists out of this country? Why didn’t they figure out a way to make the other countries in this world pull their own weight? Why? Because they will never admit they did anything wrong and they would rather sit back on their rear ends, enjoy the good life, complain, and, if necessary, eat their young rather than admit they did anything wrong or could have actually worked to do what they were elected to do.

      Did she also mention the percentage of total taxes PAID by that top 1%?….

      She’s the purveyor of BS…

      Such a good comment. Kudos. Pelosi rants and raves and never makes sense. Never mentioned the dems have done nothing but give money away. At least the repubs are doing something. May not be the best, but at least they are doing some good.

    It’s taking her and her fellow dirtbag dems longer and longer to lie these days, and if she were made to sit on her hands, I doubt she could have even say a word. All in all, it was a crumby attempt to obfuscate. I could make a rebuttal with just my hands…well, I mean one finger on one hand.

      No way does Nancy Pelosi know for a fact, all those numbers she animated. She skims the surface with skewed facts and deliberately avoids the background of how the tax cuts actually work to enhance the everyday American.

    Pelosi is a democrat political prostitute—she will downplay every conservative advancement and grandstand every democrat agenda which more often than not is un-American(like refugees)

    Stop the idiotic hypocrisy Pelosi. YOU and your party will never reduce taxes to help the lower & middle class.

    “Did you know 83 percent of the benefits of the tax bill go to the top one percent? 83 percent of the benefits, to the top one percent. In the life of the bill, 86 million middle class families will pay more taxes.”

    Nutty Nancy would know this, because she is part of the 1% that will get 83% of the benefits. So will she give part of her 83% benefits to the 86 million middle class families to offset paying more taxes by forfeiting her salary, perks and lifetime benefits as a Representative?

    Nancy’s figures are off, 137 million people filed taxes in 2016 and out of those people 97 million received refunds so that leaves approximately 38 million people who pay taxes! Mostly your middle class and small businesses! Thanks to Trump he has cut so many of Obama’s taxes on small business people that makes it possible for them to raise wages and higher new people not to mention raising the standard deduction so much for the middle class that people don’t need to itemize! And people who make $14,000 or less don’t file!

    So stupid Bitch Nancy….are you trying to double-talk your way out of your asinine statement? You’re doing a pretty crappy job trying to weasel your way out of the question, because his question is calling you out and making it clear what a biased stupid c–t you are…

    Nancy has been on the “TAKE” so long stealing from the American people, she has forgotten (if she ever knew) about what it is like to struggle from day to day. Every crumb helps.

    IDIOT. STUPID. Even though I did get money back from the IRS for the fist time. It was only 400.00 It was not much, but it did pay off my tax bill. I’m very grateful for that. Thank you Mr. Trump. I truly so happy just to finish paying off my IRS bill.
