The Democratic Party’s top leaders on Thursday flicked aside the bonuses and pay hikes 250 companies like Home Depot, Fiat Chrysler and Wells Fargo are giving employees as a result of the tax reform package approved in Congress last year and signed by President Trump.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi repeated her complaint that it was just a “crumb,” and that corporate “fat cats” will get so much more.

And the former Democratic Party chief Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz dismissed $1,000 bonuses as chump change what won’t be worth much when taxed.

Their comments were captured by the conservative group America Rising Squared at the #TrumpTax Town Hall at Florida Atlantic University sponsored by Not One Penny.

Pelosi said, “There’s a cartoon that I just love.... There’s a little mouse trap who’s got a little piece of cheese on there and there’s a mouse about to take it and that’s called the middle class. And around it are fat cats, they look a lot like elephants but anyway, around there. And that’s the thing. Get this little thing and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumb, we get the banquet.”
