Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic House Minority Leader and former Democratic Party chair and Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have gone on record that the $1000 bonuses that various businesses are distributing, thanks to the Trump Tax Cuts are absolutely nothing. The bonuses are so small, they help no one. Of course not, especially if you are a multi-millionaire.
If you are one of the little people, it’s a heck of a lot of money. It would pay my homeowner’s for a year. It would pay my auto insurance for a year (and that’s with new car replacement because my Jeep only has about 6500 miles on it). It would take care of my water, storage, or internet, or pay 75% of my Verizon for a year. For we the little people, it’s like getting to delete a utility bill for a full year. That helps we the little people – lots.
It shows how completely out of touch these Limousine Liberals really are. Seven of the ten richest members of Congress are Democrats. They don’t comprehend life in the slow lane. A thousand bucks is like manna from heaven. When you are living on limited funds, it is a gift.
Donald Trump, for all his wealth somehow has not lost the common touch. It reminds me of my favorite poem… if you can walk with kings and not lose the common touch… you are a man. He goes to McDonalds. He gets it. He understands that a thousand dollars can go a very long way. It is a visit to the dentist, new glasses or shoes, or an opportunity for a family to take a break.
The Democrats, who are allegedly the party of the people have lost that common touch. In their arrogance, they no longer comprehend that, for the vast majority of the American people, a thousand dollars is a heck of a lot of money. The average senior gets just about that much, per month, with their social security. But, in their infinite wisdom, that’s just chump change.
When you are dealing with a political party that has put people who are in the country illegally ahead of people who are American citizens. Let’s see how this is going to work. My thinking is those chickens might just come home to roost one of these days.
