Rep. Jayapal: $1.5 Trillion Is ‘Too Small to Get Our Priorities In’

October 4, 2021

Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, radical Rep. Pramila Jayapal said that recalcitrant Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D-WV) proposed $1.5 trillion for the reconciliation bill was too low a figure to get all the far-left initiatives in the package.

Asked if the more “progressive” Dems can do what they want to do for under $2 trillion, Jayapal replied, “We don’t know what the number is. There’s no number on the table yet that’s everyone agreed to… I gave a number — it was 3.5. If you are in a negotiation, you need to have a counteroffer before you bid at yourself.”

Asked about the number 1.5, Jayapal added, “That not going to happen because that’s too small to get our priorities in. It will be between 1.5 and 3.5, and I think the White House is working on that right now because remember what we want to deliver is child care, paid leave and climate change.”

Jayapal and the far-left think nothing of an astronomical figure like $3.5 trillion, because their aim is not fiscal responsibility but big-government control of every aspect of American lives.
