The Democrats want to spend $3.5 trillion dollars. It’s a number so huge that most people can’t even grasp the size of it.
So Democrats have begun advancing a new talking point, claiming that the bill will actually cost zero dollars.
It makes absolutely no sense, but they’re all saying it now. A memo clearly went out, and they all got it.
Red State reports:
This “Zero Dollars” Talking Point on the Infrastructure Bill Is Quite Something
Over the weekend, this talking point about the massive spending plan the Democrats are putting forward started to trickle out. There was this idea that the $3.5 trillion bill would actually cost nothing at all. This was even played up by journalists because the lot of them are little more than stenographers for the Democratic Party at this point.
I was fairly certain I’d hallucinated the talking point as I could see no way anyone would take a look at everything in that bill and think it costs nothing. But, lo, the talking point comes from the President of the United States himself.
See Biden’s tweet below:
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.

Jen Psaki pushed the same bogus claim:

Here’s a fact checker for the Washington Post:
Uh, do people not understand gross cost versus net? $3.5 trillion is before tax increases and fees. Trump’s gross tax cut was $5.5 trillion before other tax increases etc reduced it to $2 trillion in net costs (ie, higher deficits) https://t.co/Kd7iV7l5gS

They’re all saying it.

They are actually claiming that a $3.5 trillion spending bill will cost zero dollars.
And they expect the American people to believe it.
