Democrats are trying to pass a massive $3.5 trillion spending bill and have adopted an absurd new talking point to sell the idea to the public.
They keep making the ridiculous claim that the bill will cost zero dollars.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki is the latest to make this claim.

Psaki says $3.5T spending bill costs nothing for people earning less than $400K
White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed Monday that President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda will cost nothing for Americans who make less than $400,000.
“Let’s not dumb this down for the American public here,” Psaki said in response to a question from White House correspondent Peter Doocy about whether the package will cost “zero dollars” as the president claimed last week. “What we’re talking about is how much the top-line investments are, which are all paid for, so therefore it costs zero. No matter what the size or the cost of the top-line investments are, we have ways to pay for it.
“So the point is that’s important to the American public — and all of your viewers, too — that this is not going to cost the American public a dollar,” she continued. “We’re going to pay for this by asking corporations, the highest income — so people under $400,000, I should say — corporations’ highest income to cover the costs of these necessary investments.

The White House is also pushing this talking point.
The Build Back Better Agenda costs $0. The plan will ensure the ultra-wealthy pay their fair share and won’t raise taxes on anyone making less than $400K a year. That’s a big deal. pic.twitter.com/hQnpUqwdS0
