Pelosi: Tax Cut Bonuses just Crumbs

Nancy Pelosi, one of the wealthiest members on congress referred to the $1,000-$3,000 bonuses millions of American workers are getting as mere 'crumbs'.  To me that would be like steak and lobster, but to some elite San Francisco progressive I suppose the bonuses are just crumbs.  Nancy's crumb remark reminds me of Marie Antoinette's "let them eat cake" quote. As the story goes, it was the queen’s response upon being told that her starving peasant subjects had no bread. Because cake is more expensive than bread, the anecdote has been cited as an example of Marie-Antoinette’s obliviousness to the conditions and daily lives of ordinary people.  Read more on Pelosi's remarks here.   Perhaps Nancy should have been completely honest about her true feelings toward the common man and said, "let them eat crumbs"!

She's crazier than a loon. For her these bonuses would be bread crumbs.

Have a fabulous day, Ron. ☺
