Joe Biden offered some remarks at the White House on Friday.
He is trying to justify raising taxes and he made some absurd claims about what that would do.
Not only did he say raising taxes would be good for the economy, he also claimed it would create energy.
How does that work exactly?
The Detroit News reports:
President Joe Biden said the sweeping infrastructure proposal he unveiled this week would create 19 million jobs to further boost the U.S. economy’s trajectory coming out of the pandemic.
“Independent analysis shows that if we pass this plan the economy will create 19 million jobs,” Biden said in remarks at the White House Friday. “Good jobs, blue collar jobs, jobs that pay well.”
Biden’s $2.25 trillion “American Jobs Plan,” announced Wednesday, aims to update the country’s physical and technological infrastructure, and address longstanding economic inequities in the nation…
Biden responded Friday to criticism that higher taxes on businesses could hold back hiring or growth.
“Asking corporate America just to pay their fair share will not slow the economy at all,” he said. “It will make the economy function better and create more energy.”

Who believes this is true?
The same ole tax and spend line… Personally I'm getting tired of owing myself money.

Why are you raising taxes and also saying most Americans are out of work. Seems counter productive https://t.co/cnwbxfx0DY

Making sense is not one of Biden’s strong points.
