Thursday on CNN’s New Day, Rep. Debbie Dingell complained that “nobody knows” what’s in President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better spending agenda — and she’s “not even sure” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows’
“Paid family leave, congresswoman, gone from the bill?” asked host Brianna Keilar.
“I think one of the challenges is this morning when the president is expected to come to our Democratic caucus at 9:00 is nobody knows [what’s included],” Dingell confessed. “And I’m not even sure the speaker knows what’s in the bill, what the revenue sources are going to be. It has been in agreement. The revenue sources in this bill will cover all of … the new programs. This will not add to the debt. Now, we need to know what’s going to be in the bill.”
Fact check: the notion that this towering spending bill will not add to the debt is a lie no one believes.
“What we do get in this bill is going to make the difference in a lot of people’s lives,” Dingell continued. Tragically, she’s right about that, but not in the way she means. This bill is going to destroy America’s economy and “make a difference” — a catastrophic one — in the lives of Americans for generations to come.
