Today, in answer to a reporter's question about the growing number of companies giving bonuses to their workforce because of the tax bill, said that the bonuses were "insignificant crumbs".

"Yeah, I'm sad and surprised she said that", Ryan said.

Walmart on Thursday joined a growing list of companies who have made a decision to share the tax cut savings with employees, announcing a plan to boost pay and give bonuses worth up to $1,000 to workers.

Pelosi's spokesman, Drew Hammill, tried to show a more united front by saying that Pelosi was not criticizing members of her party involved with the immigration talks, Politico reported. Comcast officials said that they wand to spend "well in excess of $50 billion over the next five years investing in infrastructure to radically improve and extend our broadband plant and capacity, and our television, film and theme park offerings".

Southwest Airlines will use some of the savings to purchase even more planes from Boeing.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) mocked the efforts Thursday to reach an immigration deal because it was composed of five white men.

"Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she said, referring to the popular fast food restaurant "Five Guys".

"The five white guys I called them you know", Pelosi (D-Calif.) said her in weekly press briefing, drawing uncomfortable, forced laughs from the gallery.

"That could've been done four months ago", the California Democrat complained about the lack of minority involvement and the meeting of House and Senate leaders that took place earlier this week.

Among those "five white guys" negotiating is Rep. Steny Hoyer, second ranking Democrat in the House. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done", he told Politico.

Asked about whether she and fellow Democrats are willing to admit that it's good news that some firms are able to provide new benefits to employees thanks to the GOP tax package, Pelosi had nothing nice to say. Maybe she thought she could get away with it since white people can't be offended?
