Psaki says Biden’s trillions will be paid for, but Pelosi disagrees

Even if they pretend to pay for the $3.5 trillion spending bonanza President Biden and the Democrats want, it will be budget trickery.

Maybe Pelosi is being more honest in that she is not even pretending to pay for it.

According to Fox News:

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki contradicted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s assessment of how much of the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package will add to the debt, saying the entire package “is going to be paid for.”

“This is going to be paid for,” Psaki said during Wednesday’s press briefing when asked about negotiations over the size of the reconciliation package. “That is something the president is committed to, something Senator Manchin has called for as well. The real choice right now is whether you’re going to lower costs for people in this country on elder care, child care, cost of college, or whether you’re going to allow the wealthiest Americans and corporations to continue to pay the tax rates that are hardly fair moving forward.”

But those comments seemingly contradicted Pelosi, who said earlier Wednesday that “maybe” all of the package could be paid for without adding to the debt.

“We will pay for more than half maybe all of the legislation,” Pelosi said. “We will be taking some responsibility to pay for what is in there so the cost for the future will be much lower than any 3.5.”

  1. Give me a break! Nothing is paid for anymore by Congress!!

    Break out the AMEX Black!

    At this rate and with inflation, we won’t even be able to “eat cake “!!

  2. Blah blah blah… when will the Dems come up with something more clever than tax the hard working wealthy families and businesses. How about we dock pay from every member of Congress who fails to show up up to work until we curb the national debt.
