To multimillionaire Nancy Pelosi, the GOP tax cuts signed into law by President Trump are nothing more than "crumbs."
But to millions of Americans, the hundreds or thousands of dollars they suddenly see in their paychecks are a godsend.
At a roundtable discussion in the Boeing facility in St. Louis, Missouri, on Wednesday, a college cafeteria worker got a chance to tell Trump directly to his face just what the tax cuts have done for her. Bonnie Brazzeal got tears in her eyes as she told the president her story.
"Mr. President, my name is Bonnie Brazzeal. And I work at the cafeteria at the College of the Ozarks alongside the hardworking students," she said, her voice breaking with emotion. "And I am very grateful for the bonus when the college gave it to us. And I put mine in savings for my retirement. And I want to thank you, Mr. President and God bless you," she said, tears welling up in her eyes.
"That's beautiful," Trump said with a smile.
The College of the Ozarks is an extraordinary institution where "no tuition is charged, all students work on campus, debt is openly discouraged, and no federal, state or private loans are made.” So the college was the perfect place for Trump to tout his tax cuts, which he says gives people back their own money so they can be independent.
