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

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.30.21

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.

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.

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.

THIS IS REAL: Biden’s ‘Zero Cost’ $3.5T Package Includes $3 BILLION for ‘Tree Equity’

Joe Biden faced a growing backlash from both parties Monday after he bizarrely claimed that his massive $3.5 Trillion spending package actually costs “zero dollars” and won’t add to the national debt.

As more details of the plan emerge, moderate politicians are questioning some aspects of the proposal.

The Build Back Better agenda includes $79 billion for the IRS, $12 billion for electric cars, $3 billion for ‘Tree Equity’, and other far-left policies.

“My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars. Instead of wasting money on tax breaks, loopholes, and tax evasion for big corporations and the wealthy, we can make a once-in-a-generation investment in working America. And it adds zero dollars to the national debt,” posted Biden on Twitter.

 

“I have to admit, I thought this was from a parody account when I first read it,” Rep. Tenney said. “It was disturbing to see it was actually from our President. He thinks he can spend an unprecedented $3.5 trillion and not add a penny to the debt? This is who is in charge? Scary.”
