A GOP lawmaker is trolling Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) with legislation called the CRUMBS Act.

Fox News reports, the legislation would make most bonuses given out as a result of President Trump's tax reform plan tax-free.

 Rep. Todd Rokita, R-Ind., has dubbed his bill the "Creating Relief and Useful Middle-Class Benefits and Savings" -- or "CRUMBS" Act.

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., referred to company bonuses given to employees as "crumbs" last month while criticizing the tax plan.

"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 to Fox News. "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.”

Rokita's bill would make bonuses received by workers in 2018 tax-free up to $2,500.
