Fiscal Fake Out
by Michael Ramirez, December 19, 2021
Just this week, the Biden White House reiterated that the Build Back Better plan would cost nothing and "not add a dime to the deficit." They called the crime wave a fiction caused by COVID (I don't know how you square both contradictory statements), and they are heralding this massive government expansion (of things we do not need, with money we do not have), and are still claiming they can deliver everything without any fiscal impact.
And on top of that slew of fiction peddling (NYTimes bestsellers, I'm sure), they have the audacity to call the latest CBO scoring of the bill at around $5 trillion, fake. Hilarious. President Biden expects us to believe him?
How do you encapsulate all those points in one cartoon? Voila.
