House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has is the most recent propionate of the $3.5-trillion spending deal to claim that it will cost the American people “zero” dollars.
According to Fox News, Pelosi told reporters that “It’s not about a dollar amount,” connected with the bill. “The dollar amount, as the president said, is zero. This bill will be paid for.”
Frustration has reigned among Republicans who consider this to be a distraction from the actual crisis that America is facing due to it’s current crippling level of debt.
According to Fox News some Republicans called it a social policy bill that “ultimately provides benefits to wealthy liberal elites at the expense of working-class families.”
Even several of the more right leaning Democrats, such as Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, (D-AZ), and Joe Manchin, (D-WV), and Rep. Stephanie Murphy, (D-FL) have shared concerns about the package.
Pelosi echoed President Joe Biden’s comments from just days ago when he surprised Americans with the seemingly impossible endorsement of the bill and it’s whopping price tag. The president said that the bill would cost “zero dollars” while being a “once-in-a-generation investment in working America.”
However, both of the elderly leaders of the DNC were the victim of harsh criticism, including reporter Emily Zanotti who quipped that the assessment must be the result of “new math.”
Sen. Tom Cotton, (R-AR) cut straight to the chase calling Pelosi “as delusional as President Biden” if she believed that.
Essentially, conservatives are begging for lawmakers in the majority are waiting for Democrats to “show me the money” and Democrats have responded by asking “what money?”
