On Thursday’s broadcast of CNN’s “OutFront,” House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth (D-KY) said that $3.5 trillion in spending under the reconciliation bill “is pretty inconsequential when you consider all the benefits to the American people,” and “The federal government can afford anything that it feels it needs to do.”
Yarmuth said Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) “has no understanding of how the federal government monetary system works. When he compared it yesterday to his household income, that has no relevance to what we can do. It’s not a question of what we can afford. The federal government can afford anything that it feels it needs to do. And right now, that’s what we ought to be focused on.”
Really! His lips moved and everything!
But why, then, have a budgetary process at all? Why not have the federal government purchase literally everything everyone in America needs or wants—and distribute it for free? Indeed, why have taxes?
Please, please watch the video above. It’s only 33 seconds long, and it’s the most blatant attempt to deceive that any Congressman has ever dared to essay.
Either John Yarmuth doesn’t understand the import of his words, in which case he might be the stupidest man ever elected to a federal position, or he does…in which case he’s purely evil, a deceiver who hopes to rob us and all our descendants, with our compliance. And here I am typing with my fists again.
Yarmuth thought he was talking to a “friendly audience.” Perhaps he forgot that his performance would be recorded for others to marvel at. People whose jobs have been destroyed by the Usurpers’ policies. People whose towns and counties have been impoverished by the disappearance of employers. People who’ve been watching prices skyrocket and their savings dwindle.
Spread this little video around, Gentle Reader. If enough people see it and grasp its significance, we might just reach the critical mass necessary to eject the Usurpers and their henchmen on Capitol Hill from their seats.
