My Build Back Better Agenda costs zero dollars.

And it adds zero dollars to the national debt.

The opening sentence of Biden's Tweet, is of course idiotic.

For those who think it is a typo, and Biden meant something else, Biden made the same statement at a press conference last week.

“Every time I hear this is going to cost A, B, C, or D—the truth is, based on the commitment that I made, it’s going to cost nothing,” said Biden.

Where are the Democratic fact checkers when you need them?

Even if you grant Biden allowances that he really meant "My package will be fully paid for by tax hikes," it's still a lie.

10-Year Shifty Math

Biden uses an arbitrary stop date of 2025 on child allowances, a start date on dental of 2028, a stop date on child care of 2027, and a stop date of 2028 on "free" college.*
Pelosi doesn't want to talk "numbers and dollars." Why? It's the largest tax increase and most expensive legislation in history.

$4.3T in new spending
$2.1T in new taxes
$2.4T in more debt

She talks a lot about the children—our grandkids will certainly pay for these policies.
