Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) isn’t exactly a household name… but it should be!
As you know, Trump’s Tax Reform, passed last year, is making a real difference in people’s lives already! Not only are people getting slightly bigger pay checks, but many companies are giving away huge bonuses to their employees too! Yet, Nancy Pelosi (and other Democrats) keep insisting that these pay increases and bonus checks are “crumbs.”
In a jab to Nancy Pelosi’s “crumbs” statements, Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) is proposing legislation that would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump’s tax reform plan TAX FREE, and he carefully created the acronym CRUMBS to name the bill as well! (High-five, Rep. Rokita…. high-five!) 🙂
Rokita’s bill, “Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings” a.k.a. CRUMBS act, would make bonuses received by workers in 2018 tax-free up to $2,500.
“Americans are receiving thousands of dollars in bonuses and more money in their paychecks thanks to President Trump’s tax reform, but out-of-touch Democratic leaders believe they only amount to crumbs,” Rokita said in a statement. “The CRUMBS Act will let Americans keep more of the money they receive as a result of President Trump’s tax reform, and allow them, not the government, to choose how best to spend their bonuses.”
- Chairman of the Subcommittee On Early Childhood. Elementary, and Secondary Education
- Vice Chairman of the Budget Committee
- Member of the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee
In a nutshell, he’s a hard-working Representative, who not only wants to improve the lives of all Americans… he is doing it with a splash of humor pointed at the Democrats! (Wouldn’t it be great to get more people like HIM in Congress?? Hopefully soon, we can!)
Thank you, Rep. Todd Rokita! Americans REALLY appreciate those crumbs, and with your bill (hopefully) making the crumbs tax-free, those crumbs will be even tastier!! 🙂
