WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — Vice President Mike Pence ripped House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday for dismissing employee bonuses resulting from the GOP tax cut as mere “crumbs.”
“I heard Nancy Pelosi, before the tax cut was voted on, predicted economic armageddon,” Pence told House and Senate Republicans on the first day of the annual GOP policy retreat at The Greenbrier resort.
“It’s just amazing to me that after this tax cut passes, 3 million Americans get another $1,000 in their pockets in many cases, and she actually described that as ‘crumbs,’” added Pence, who formerly represented Indiana in the House and governor’s office.
“Let me just remind you all that I come from the JoS A. Bank wing of the West Wing,” Pence joked, referencing the discount clothier. “Seriously, people stop me and say, ‘Is that a new suit?’ and I say, ‘Two for one.’”
“If you’re going to say that $1,000 is crumbs, you live in a different world than I’m living in,” the vice president continued. “If I had another $1,000 in my pocket at the end of the year, I have a term for that: Christmas. … Or maybe a little something extra for Mrs. Pence.”
