The Double Talk on the Infrastructure Bill – Do People Really Believe this ?
There is lots of talk coming from Capitol hill on the Infrastructure Bill. The talk that is really blowing my mind is that people at the top are selling the Infrastructure Bill as costing zero. It comes from the 3rd in charge from the Nation – Nancy Pelosi and now Cedrick Richmond – senior advisor to President Biden.
How can you spend 3.5 trillion dollars and link it to a 1.5 trillion infrastructure bill (or at least try to) and then sell it to the American people that it will cost nothing?
Cedric Richmond, a senior adviser to President Biden, insisted Sunday that the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill will cost “zero” due to tax hikes on the wealthy but lamented that critics of the bill are getting too hung up on the price tag.Jessica Chasmar Fox News
“At the end of the day, Chris, I think what’s important for people to understand is that this piece of legislation costs zero,” he said. “We’re going to pay for it all by raising taxes on the very wealthy and big corporations.”Cedrick Richmond
Now, look at the last statement from Biden’s own senior advisor when speaking to Chris Wallace. The legislation costs zero – but then we are going to pay for it by raising taxes on the very wealthy and big corporations? What kind of bull crap double talk is that? Do Americans really swallow this? You can’t make this stuff up! At least Chris Wallace calls him on the carpet.
“I’ve gotta stop you there, it doesn’t cost zero,” Wallace interjected. “Now, you can pay for it either by borrowing it or you can pay for it by raising taxes on corporations or the wealthy, but it doesn’t cost zero.”Chris Wallace
I’m saying about time someone calls bullshit. Richmond’s logic is classic.
Richmond continued, “At the end of the day it will cost zero because we’re going to pay for it. Now, if you go back and look at the Trump tax cuts, which weren’t paid for, they cost billions and billions, but we’re going to pay for everything we spend here.”Cedrick Richmond
Wait a minute? Did Richmond just say this was going to cost something? Is it or isn’t it? This is how the political group speaks in the Biden administration. Are people stupid enough to swallow this? Chris Wallace calls him out again.
Wallace pushed back, arguing that “the fact that you’re raising people’s taxes is a cost. … If it’s a $2 trillion spending plan, net-net it costs $2 trillion.”Chris Wallace
Here is the reality. President Biden and his gang of advisors including Nancy Pelosi are using double talk to try to ramrod a huge socialist spending package down our throats and try to say it will cost nothing. I can’t think of one thing in this world that is free. Welfare isn’t free, Social Security isn’t free, Medicare isn’t free, groceries aren’t free and either is rent or gasoline. All these things must be paid for with cash, whether it is out of my pocket directly, or out of my pocket in the form of taxes. President Biden and his gang of liars also say this tax won’t hit people that make less than $400,000 a year.
How stupid do they think we are? When you tax corporations guess what happens. Their bottom line shrinks IF they allow it to. They don’t. They simply raise prices and then who pays for it? The middle class and the poor.
Americans, Democrats, Republicans, Independents or what ever you call yourselves! Call your representatives in Congress and the Senate – especially if you are a Democrat. Use the intelligence that you were given as a human being. Hold these people accountable in Washington D.C. Do not let them spend your money freely. Force them to balance the budget. Force legislation for term limits! In 2024 vote these idiots to the curb.
America is a free country. We are a Democratic Republic. We are not a Socialist Country. We don’t recklessly spend other peoples money and use lies and double talk to steal it. We must understand there are those that are uneducated that think that when the word “free” is used it is free! They don’t understand that nothing in this world is free. It all must be paid for.
For those lining up with their hands open waiting for free stuff – you should be ashamed of yourself. Have you no dignity or self-respect. Do you have no honor? Are you that damn lazy that you can’t work for yourself and family? America was built on the back of working folks, not sleazebags that troll the bottom of the lake and wait for handouts. Quit using COVID-19 as an excuse. Get off your anti-depressant’s and go to work. America was built by hard working folks – and your lazy excuse for existence isn’t going to be paid by me. Get a job and go to work. As for the sleazebag politicians and advisors- stop lying to the American people. I don’t know how you can even sleep at night. As for the press secretary – quit lying to the press in your briefings.
