Nancy Pelosi has shown how out of touch she is with the class. Though she was criticized for saying this, she doubled down, comparing the class into a lot of mice that were desperate. .
“There’s a small mouse trap who has got a tiny bit of cheese on there and there is a mouse going to take it and that is called the middle class,” said Pelosi.
“And about it are fat cats, they seem a great deal like elephants but anyhow, around there. And that is the thing. Get this thing and we get this bonanza. You receive the crumb, we receive the feast,” said Pelosi.
This is very similar to a speech she gave in January. “A variety of bonuses — one of the bonuses was in a marriage contract and then they added a bit more cash to that. The workers were told by that firm when they wanted to save their jobs and they went to be laying off 1,500 people, they might work 32 hours. Concerning the bonus that corporate America receives versus the crumbs they’re giving to workers to place the schmooze on is so pathetic,” said Pelosi.
“And I’d hope with their huge benefit of bringing home in a really low rate that they would invest in infrastructure but our experience has been they will seek dividends and buy-backs.
