I know math can be hard for many of us – even those not suffering from dementia. But how exactly did Joe Biden come up with zero dollars as the cost of the $3.5 trillion boondoggle Democrats want to ram down our throats?
Did Joe find $3.5 trillion tucked between the sofa cushions in the Oval Office?
Then, in the same tweet, he says it won’t add $3.5 trillion to the national debt because the tax increases in the bill will allegedly “pay” for it.
So which is it? Is it that it will cost zero dollars? Or is it that it won’t add to the national debt?
Now, the first sentence is insane. The last sentence is illogical.
To believe that Congress can pass a $3.5 trillion spending bill and nothing will be added to the debt beggars belief.
Nobody is this stupid.
Okay, some people are this stupid. How else could Joe Biden become the President of the United States?
Here’s what will happen if, God forbid, this pile of garbage passes.
Before Joe Biden even signs it into law, every billionaire whom Joe plans to tax to death to “pay” for this boondoggle will have already made the necessary arrangements to shelter their wealth far from taxing eyes.
They’ve got a zillion ways to avoid paying taxes; and they will deploy every single one of them.
The money Joe is counting on to fund his “Build Back Better” agenda will dry up before he can say “Trunalimunumaprzure.” And either they’ll have to rely on deficit spending and add to the national debt, or they’ll have to start taxing everybody else.
“Build Back Better.” Man, that slogan irritates the crap out of me.
More like “Fuck Up Faster.”
Sure, Joe promised that he wouldn’t raise taxes on anyone making less than $400K.
“My word as a Biden.”
Yeah, we know what your word as a Biden is worth. It’s about zero dollars.
That’s the funny thing about Democrats. They have a blind spot when it comes to real life.
They actually believe “the rich” will just stand still and accept being forced to pay “their share in taxes” — as if they don’t already.
But, as Newton’s Third Law tells us, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. It’s science.
When government taxes the living crap out of “the rich,” “the rich” react by sheltering their money where government can’t get to it.
Corporations and businesses don’t just stand still either.
They push back by raising prices on consumers.
But this, for some odd reason, comes as a surprise to the dopes in this administration.
Yeah, but the American people aren’t going to be pissed off by the companies who raise their prices, Jen you ignorant slut; they’re going to get pissed off with the Democrats for forcing through the unsustainable spending bill that caused the problem in the first place.
Because most Americans understand the science of cause and effect.
And let’s just play along with President Stupid for a moment. Let’s pretend this $3.5 trillion spending bill will add zero dollars to the national debt.
Americans are still going to pay a steep price if this bill becomes law.
We’ll be paying more to heat our homes, to fill our gas tanks, to run electricity. Our grocery prices will go up. The cost of “green compliant homes” will price even more Americans out of the housing market. Automobiles, clothing, household items – there won’t be a single thing that won’t get more expensive.
There is absolutely no way in hell Americans won’t get stuck paying more.
And here’s a little secret. Most Americans don’t give the national debt a moment’s thought. Not smart of them to be sure, because one day the bill will come due, and when that happens, hoo-boy are we screwed. But the fact is, most Americans don’t think about it at all.
But they care about their own debt, their own expenses, and the cost of the things they buy. And this bill is going bite them so hard in the ass they won’t know what hit them.
In reality though, this $3.5 trillion sack of crap will add a hell of a lot more than zero dollars to the national debt. Because, at the end of the day, there aren’t enough billionaires in the world to keep this boondoggle funded decade after decade after decade. Eventually the “rich” that we do have will be the ones with zero dollars.

The sad truth is the democrat voting base isn’t concerned with the economy. all they care about is getting their free stuff and not having to work for anything. There’s a black woman that comes into our store. She has two kids and a link card plus an EBT card for each of them. She pays nothing for food but buys her cigarettes with a $100 bill. Welfare is the name of the game with democrat voters.
Ain’t that the truth. My family used to give to the “Angel Tree” (where you buy Christmas gifts for the kids that usually get nothing) every year. This one particular year, we happened to be shopping where people would come to pick up their donated gifts. What we saw were folks in brand new cars (usually Cadillacs) and wearing designer labels with $200+ sneakers picking up said gifts. Never again, and that was 25 years ago.
I’m reminded of being a member of the Lion’s Club in a small deep south town for a couple of years. They had some kind of Christmas gift basket thing going, with the baskets assembled by Lions and other volunteers. The recipient list was usually in the poor section of town, but there were two different types of people: the “genuinely needy,” and the “I’ll sign up for anything that’s free” crowd.
I was assigned to deliver with Bubba, who worked at the gas company (his real name…I can’t make this stuff up). We delivered to a couple of little old ladies who you could tell really needed help. Bubba almost broke down, and you could tell it when he said “Ma’am, we’re from the Lions Club and hope this makes your Christmas a little brighter. We hope y’all have a Merry Christmas.”
Then, we got to the house with the jacked up Charger in the front yard, no wheels, with the front porch littered with easily seventy-five beer cans. Bubba bangs on the door with his fist: “Get your fu***ng ass up, ya pig! Lions Club! (slings basket at door) Here’s your basket, ya freeloading asswipes!!!”
There ain’t a thing I miss about that town, except Bubba McMullen and his mood swing when he came across someone workin’ the system. Righteous indignation, except for a few swears thrown in. So funny, and a pleasure to watch!
It’s astonishing to me that the people in Congress whining about “corporations don’t pay their fair share of taxes” conveniently forget that these corporations are merely following the letter of the tax laws.
Who created these tax laws? Congress.
Fine. Raise their taxes. Their costs of doing business goes up. Their shareholders demand that they raise prices. These taxes are merely passed on to the end consumer.
Zero dollars, Joe? Do you actually think people are as stupid as your “advisors”?
“Jen, you ignorant slut!”
I saw what you did there, Dianny…. Good one!
YES!! …jumping from bed to bed with the frequency of a portable hand radio!!!
When everything costs more, people buy less. This economy will dry up faster than Hillary’s womb after Chelsea.
If the bill costs zero dollars, why do they want to raise the debt ceiling?
