The Congressional Budget Office has run the number on the Democrats Build back better plan and the numbers are not pretty. The CBO estimates that the plan will increase the federal deficit by $3.0 trillion over the next ten years.
Far from costing nothing, the Democrats Build Back Better plan will saddle future taxpayers with $3.0 trillion in debt. The GOUSA blog reported earlier on the Democrats “fuzzy math.” Now the CBO has weighed in.
No wonder that the House Democrats took the unusual step of rushing to vote on the bill before the CBO had the opportunity to score the legislation.
Indeed, the claim Build Back Better would “cost nothing” earned Joe Biden two Pinocchios from the Washington Post fact checker. Should have been more.
After being told for decades by pitchmen promising something for nothing, Americans can spot a con job when they see it.
Perhaps the fibs, untruths and outright lies that Joe Biden and the Democrats have been telling the American people about the cost of the legislation are the reason that that it polls so poorly.
Polling by NPR/Marist shows that a mere 41 percent of respondents support the Build Back Better bill.
