But, after the bill passed, it became clear that Pelosi's theatrical language was hiding the fact that tax reform meant substantially more money in the pockets of the American people.

"I would hope that with their big advantage of bringing money home at a very low rate that they would invest in infrastructure and things, but our experience has been that they will do dividends, do stock buybacks and things like that", she continued.

The Democratic Party has "great diversity" she went on to argue. The lack of involvement in these talks from nonwhite members of Congress delays the deal, she said, since any DACA agreement will require approval from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other groups.

"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 comment is offensive", Hoyer, D-Maryland, said in a statement Thursday.




"Leader Pelosi has every confidence in the leadership of Whip Hoyer and Senator Durbin, which they have demonstrated on this topic for years", Drew Hammill said.

"That could have been done months ago", Pelosi added, referencing the negotiations this week.

"That comment is offensive". "Understanding of the issues, the ability to translate policy into the lives of people, the sensitivity even on the wording is really important for people who have been engaged in the issues, to be there at the table". "It's not a question of who's there but who's not there".

"We are giving it to those folks not just because not only are they hard working, but they don't participate in our annual bonus which typically are for salary employees", Fish said during an interview on "Countdown to the Closing Bell" Friday.

Hoyer and more than 20 bipartisan legislators met with Trump on Tuesday to negotiate a possible deal on the expiring Obama-era program.
