Democrats are certainly known for their ethical gymnastics, especially when it comes to “Defund Police” and other matters wherein they flip flop like crazy depending on wherever the public opinion wind blows, but the latest economic gymnastics from Nancy Pelosi really take the cake.
Considering that “public servant” Pelosi is worth an estimated $300M despite never starting a company or for that matter having an alternative career outside the swamp of any kind, the commentary she has to say about the raging inflation pervading American is especially tone deaf.
For starters, in the spirit of the Biden administration and the utterly bought and paid for Psaki, Pelosi has proclaimed that all of the rising prices in America are due to Putin, apparently forgetting that rising prices have been the norm ever since Biden stepped angrily into power, clearly armed with an axe to grind and a pen to sign seventeen different woke executive orders.
However, clearly not willing to be outdone by Psaki in terms of incompetency, Pelosi takes things even further by proclaiming that gargantuan government spending, to the tune of trillions largely unaccounted for, actually reduces inflation.
That’s right: According to Ms. Pelosi and her $300M fortune, massive government spending is the way to prosperity.
“One other point that we’ll make about it is that what we are doing in our legislation, what we would do in the Build Back Better – seventeen Nobel laureates in economics said that legislation does not increase inflation. It is non-inflationary because of the way it is written,” Pelosi trilled.
Funny that Ms. Pelosi uses the exact number of seventeen, which happens to correspond to the number of aforementioned executive orders that commenced the “America Last” era, including such pressing topics as open borders and transgender bathroom rights.
Furthermore, is the “argument” that seventeen PhDs from woke universities, some of whom probably bought their dissertations from ghostwriters, supposed to be remotely compelling?
As if Americans care what seventeen elitist PhDs from Harvard University have to say about the Democrats’ addiction to spending?
After all, American workers are currently the ones barely able to afford gas and groceries after the Democrats’ self-righteous push of the Green New Deal, a deal that none of them even follow themselves given their frequent travel and general wastefulness.
Moreover, Pelosi continues to insist that massive government spending does not increase inflation, in fact, it allegedly reduces inflation.
However, Queen Bee doesn’t provide a single, solitary fact to support her preposterous claims.
And that’s because such facts don’t exist.
“So when we’re having this discussion, it’s important to dispel some of those who say, well it’s the government spending – no, it isn’t,” Pelosi brayed, The government spending is doing the exact reverse, reducing the national debt. It is not inflationary.”
So, in the spirit of dictators’ past, Pelosi is opting for the terrible option of repeating something over and over and over again, to the extent that it is accepted as fact without being questioned as a fact.
Keeping in mind that Pelosi thinks Democrat voters are so brain dead that they’ll vote for “a glass of water” if “Democrat” is also beside that choice, it’s really no surprise that she didn’t even bother to invent a fact to support her claims, as her braindead base won’t even think to fact check something that CNN tells them.
Pelosi predictably segued into blaming Putin for everything, as is common for the pretentious House Speaker.
“We’re paying very close attention to it, but this starts with Putin because the global inflation for reasons beyond the gas price,” Pelosi remarked primly, “global inflation is something that we have to deal with globally, but we have our responsibility to deal with it at home, and we have legislation that does just that, by increasing supply and, again, creating jobs in a way that is not adding to inflation.”
“Global inflation is something that we have to deal with globally.”
Wow, what a remarkable observation!
And please, by all means, clarify this “way that is not adding inflation,” as insufficient reasoning is provided.
Democrats actually believe this garbage?
Then again, Pelosi is repeatedly elected in California, arguably one of the greatest centers of fraud.
Just consider the number of sanctuary cities …
