DEMS IMPLODING: Joe Manchin Says His Maximum Spending Limit is $1.5 Trillion

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.01.21

Democratic Senator Joe Manchin spoke with reporters outside the US Capitol Thursday where he confirmed his maximum spending limit for his party’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan is $1.5 trillion, $2 trillion less than the full package promoted by Progressive lawmakers.

“My top-line has been $1.5 [trillion],” Manchin told the crowd, saying he doesn’t want Congress to “change our whole society to an entitlement mentality.”

“I didn’t think any of this was needed at this time. I thought the infrastructure bill was really what was needed but I said fine, this is a condition I would get to and that was a $1.5 [trillion package],” he said.

“At that point in time I was not in favor of moving on this type of piece of legislation. I wasn’t trying to be the fly in the ointment at all,” he added.

 

“I’ve never been a liberal in any way,” concluded the Senator. “I have voted consistently my whole life. They’re much more progressive and much more liberal. For them to get what they want, elect more liberals!”

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

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.29.21

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.

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.
