Meghan McCain slammed President Joe Biden’s “asinine” claim that his $3.5 trillion spending bill has a price tag of “zero” dollars and said the American public isn’t “stupid.”
“The bill will cost 0 dollars is the most asinine talking point since ‘I voted for it before I voted against it,'” McCain tweeted Tuesday to her hundreds of thousands of followers. (RELATED: ‘Dragged’: Meghan McCain Blasts ‘Every Single Person In Biden Administration’ Over Fall Of Kabul)
“The American public aren’t stupid,” she added. “There’s nothing in this world for free.”

Some pushed back, arguing that increasing taxes on those high earners will mean passing those costs down to consumers. Psaki said such a move would be “unfair and absurd” that companies would increase costs in response to them being taxed more by the Biden administration.
It won’t be paid for & even if it were, that wouldn’t change the cost of the massive tax & spend package. WH floated laughable “zero cost” line & journos are just going with it. Meanwhile, tax relief that allows people to keep their own $ is always discussed as a “cost” to govt. https://t.co/40gVfS0FDC
