ICYMI: DEBBIE DOWNER: Schultz Says $1000 BONUSES ‘Don’t Go Very Far’

posted by Hannity Staff - 1.28.18

Former DNC chairwoman and Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz continued the Democrat denial of the GOP tax cut success story this week; dismissing higher earnings and big bonuses while claiming that $1,000 doesn’t “go very far” for hard-working American families.

The embattled Representative was speaking at a “Trump Tax Town Hall” event when she made her totally out-of-touch comments, suggesting that the bonuses won’t do much for average Americans.

“Frankly, if you look at the bonuses -and I haven’t heard of a corporate bonus of more than $1,000 so far- which by the way isn’t taxed, so it’s not $1,000,” said Schultz. “And then you spread $1,000 over the course of a year… So figure out how much that is, of course they get it all at once.”

“I’m not sure that $1,000 which is taxed goes very far for almost anyone,” she added.

Debbie’s off-the-wall comments completely ignore the economic boost that $1,000 can deliver for hard-working men and women across the country; allowing them to invest in home improvements, car maintenance, buy stocks, and take their families on vacations.
