BERNIN’ UP! Sanders Says Republicans Out to ‘Plunge World’s Economy into Chaos and Depression’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.05.21

Radical Senator Bernie Sanders published an unhinged rant on Twitter Tuesday afternoon, accusing his Republican colleagues of working to “plunge the world’s economy into chaos and depression.”

“The Republican Party’s lust for power and political gain is so great that they are prepared to default on the debt they voted for under Trump, and plunge the world’s economy into chaos and depression. To call that ‘irresponsible’ would be a major understatement,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

Similar rhetoric was deployed by other Democrats as President Biden’s domestic agenda stalls in Congress.

“The Republican position as the party of default has now become so extreme that they’ve blocked every single attempt to prevent a default from happening, putting our country in serious, serious danger,” said Schumer.

 

The President made similar comments earlier this week.

Biden blamed his own party’s inability to advance his economic agenda on Republicans Monday, asking members of the GOP to “get out of the way” so they “don’t destroy” the United States.

“Not only are Republicans refusing to do their job, they’re threatening to use their power to prevent us from doing our job… It’s hypocritical, dangerous, and disgraceful. Their obstruction and irresponsibility know absolutely no bounds,” said the President.

“I cannot believe that will be the end result, because the consequences are so dire,” he added. “But can I guarantee it? If I could, I would. But I can’t.”

“Your lieutenants in Congress must understand that you do not want your unified Democratic government to sleepwalk toward an avoidable catastrophe when they have had nearly three months’ notice to do their job,” McConnell wrote.

“Republicans’ position is simple. We have no list of demands. For two and a half months, we have simply warned that since your party wishes to govern alone, it must handle the debt limit alone as well.”

FANTASYLAND: Pelosi Says the ‘Dollar Amount’ for Biden’s $3.5 TRILLION Package is Actually ‘Zero’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi continued to tout Joe Biden’s massive $3.5 trillion spending proposal this week, once-again telling journalists that the shocking price-tag will magically cost “zero.”

“It’s not about a dollar amount…the dollar amount, as the president said, is zero. This bill will be paid for,” Pelosi told reporters at the US Capitol.

A frustrated reporter grilled Press Secretary Jen Psaki Tuesday over the Biden administration’s massive $3.5 trillion spending package; asking if the White House understands that somebody ultimately has to pay the price for the spending increase.

“Do you guys acknowledge the broader truth that it does cost somebody?? Right? The cost of the investments the president wants to make, they’re not simply a free lunch, right? Whether they’re going to cost people who smoke cigarettes, or businesspeople, or companies, or rich people… The cost of what the President wants to do falls on somebody, right?” asked one reporter.

“There’s a clear difference between what we’re talking about as it relates to taxpayer funds, or funding that would lead to our debt? Right?” deflected the Press Secretary.

FLASHBACK: Biden, Pelosi Say the $1.9T ‘American Rescue Plan’ Will ‘Cut Childhood Poverty In Half!’

As Democrats rush to pass another $3.5 trillion spending package through Congress this week, users on social media questioned promises made earlier this year when President Biden and Speaker Pelosi both claimed the ‘American Rescue Plan’ would “cut childhood poverty in half.”

“This plan is going to make it possible to cut child poverty in half. Let me say it again: A, significant historic [sic] will cut child poverty in half,” said Biden on March 6.

“Poverty is set to be cut in half this year, with the share of Americans living in poverty set to reach the lowest level on record,” added Nancy Pelosi.

 

 

Democrats now claim the latest $3.5 trillion will actually “cost zero dollars.”

“It’s not about a dollar amount…the dollar amount, as the president said, is zero. This bill will be paid for,” Pelosi told reporters at the US Capitol.
