Joe Biden tried to spin several concerns for Americans during a recent interview. He sat down with a reporter Tuesday, but seemingly avoided responsibility for key issues.
Biden held a virtual interview with a local Ohio network and was asked questions on the major issues such as inflation, the Build Back Better bill and vaccines. During the discussion, he claimed the Build Back Better bill won’t cost Americans a cent.
According to the Congressional Budget Office estimations, however, this is false. The CBO pointed out the measure will cost more than the $1.7 trillion they proposed. In reality, the bill is estimated to cost $5 trillion and add $3 trillion to the nation’s debt with the addition of more accurate costs of the social programs.
The Associated Press reported wholesale prices increased by almost 10 percent in November. This indicates inflation will continue to rise.
Supply chain issues have also been a worry for many Americans this year, especially during the Christmas season. Biden assured the supply chain is in good shape, but stopped short of promising it won’t cost Americans more money.
Biden was also asked about vaccine mandates after federal judges put a hold on several lawsuits filed against the administration. His response was to blame the unvaccinated.
Biden claimed it’s the unvaccinated who are the problem, but reports have shown the jab fails to completely protect people from getting COVID and spreading it to others. According to CDC Director, Rochelle Walensky there’s an uptick in hospitalizations among people who have been vaccinated.
