Wednesday on MSNBC’s MTP Daily, radical Rep. Pramila Jayapal pushed back against reports that the Democrats are in disarray as different wings of the party remain at odds over the reconciliation bill.
“This idea that somehow Democrats are in disarray and there’s terrible disagreement, it’s not true,” Jayapal claimed. “We’re waiting for two people to tell us what they agree on, first of all, because they don’t agree with each other, and then we’d like them to tell us what they want us to consider that is different from the act that is on the table that the president agrees with, that 98% of Democrats agree with, that 70% of the American people agree with if they know what’s in it.”
Fact check: A minority, not even remotely 70% of the American people, support the Democrats’ insanely exorbitant bill.
She continued, “It’s universal childcare, so no one has to pay more than 7% of their income. It’s housing for everybody across the country to ease the numbers of unhoused that are here in the richest country in the world. It is making sure that seniors have access to dental, vision, and hearing benefits at the very time when they need it the most. It’s real action on climate change… And, of course, it’s lifting up immigrants. That’s the agenda. We want people to know that’s what we’re fighting for. We’re fighting for them to have transformation in their lives.”
No, they’re fighting for a transformation of the United States into a socialist dystopia.
