We get that the memo has gone out that President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act that costs $3.5 trillion actually costs $0. Biden’s been pushing that line, and now it’s time to see who else wants to put their credibility on the line. Californian Rep. Jared Huffman decided to grant us a fact-check Tuesday explaining that the Build Back Better Act costs nothing, and it’s going to be paid for by billionaires.
FACT CHECK: The #BuildBackBetterAct costs us $0.00.
It’s going to be paid for by making sure billionaires and corporations finally pay their taxes.

We thought it paid for itself.
This is, of course, a lie. https://t.co/ftDVriDfWT

Ask Jared for all the money in his pocket while explaining to him it actually costs him nothing. https://t.co/W1xRew8DBO

How do you pay $0.00? And why do you need to tax people to do it? https://t.co/irPGSkOTPT

So you’ll collect $350b from billionaires and corporations each year? Are there any hard numbers anywhere on how that will be accomplished? Would be nice to see

Some group of highly paid aides sat around a conference table and came up with this “it costs $0” line and it got approved by this administration. That’s how dumb they think you are.
