As White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre is the official mouthpiece for the Biden administration.
She’s used to being treated with kid gloves by the corporate-controlled press.
But Karine Jean-Pierre was floored when an ABC reporter used this one word to describe the Biden administration.
With the November Midterm elections rapidly approaching, Democrats are desperately searching for a way to maintain their stranglehold on Congress after this year.
Republicans only need to flip one seat in the Senate and five seats in the House to regain the majority in both chambers.
Polls consistently show that the economy and inflation are the top concerns for voters this fall.
They also show that the majority of Americans place the blame for skyrocketing inflation directly at the feet of President Joe Biden and Democrats.
Despite the fact that their out-of-control spending is what caused the current inflationary crisis, Democrats just rammed a $700 billion socialist spending bill through Congress under the guise of the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act.”
However, the name of the bill is grossly misleading, as the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) determined that the legislation will have zero impact on reducing inflation.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently appeared on ABC to try to sell the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” to the American people.
But even the Fake News Media took issue with the misnamed bill.
“It’s called the ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ but the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which is nonpartisan, said that there would be a negligible impact on inflation this year and barely impact inflation at all next year,” ABC’s Jonathan Karl began. “Isn’t it almost Orwellian? How can you call it the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ when the non-partisan experts say it’s not going to bring inflation down?”
“So I appreciate the question,” a clearly-frustrated Jean-Pierre rudely fired back over Karl, who was attempting to finish his sentence.
Jean-Pierre then tried to spin the CBO’s claim that the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” would have negligible impact on inflation.
“We’ve actually addressed this, the CBO,” Jean-Pierre claimed. “It was the topline number,” she continued, adding that “there’s more in there that shows that it will have the money.”
Jean-Pierre then randomly switched to Democrat talking points about taxing billionaires, claiming that this would somehow “help fight inflation.”
“Remember how we’re doing this too,” Jean-Pierre said. “It’s making sure that billionaires in corporate America are paying their fair share, making sure that the tax code is a little more fair.”
“When you do that, when you put it in its totality, you will see that it will lower the deficit which will help fight inflation,” she concluded.
This is patently false.
As the CBO reported, Democrats’ so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” will have a negligible impact on inflation.
Karine Jean-Pierre’s attempt to spin the “Inflation Reduction Act” is not the first time the Biden administration used Orwellian language on the American people.
After the latest economic report showed two consecutive quarters of negative growth, President Joe Biden tried to change the long-standing definition of a recession, with the White House actually putting out an official statement in order to try to change the definition.
President Biden also claimed that the economy had “zero percent inflation in the month of July,” when inflation was still 8.5% overall.
Joe Biden and Democrats are trying their best to turn the administration’s failures into successes.
But even the Fake News Media is pointing out the absurdity of the administration’s claims.
