During a recent town hall event with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz voiced her doubts on just how far the average savings people are going to get from the Republican led-and-passed Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
“I’m not sure that $1,000 goes very far for anyone,” she said.
Her comments on that amount of money run in contrast to what she has said people will save on Obamacare. She praised how senior citizens will save an average of $1,068:

Schultz has also said much smaller dollar amounts are very important to people:
House GOP refused to extend payroll tax cut yesterday. Senate passed bill 89-10. $40 per paycheck. Tweet what #40dollars means to you.

It appears the threshold for making a difference in people’s lives for Schultz is $2,000:

Pelosi also repeated how people are still getting “crumbs” when compared to what businesses are going to receive. “[You] get this little thing and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumbs, we get the banquet,” she said.
