When a reporter asked Psaki about the obvious high inflation, and Biden’s plan to pass the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better plan as Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin continues to push back on its passage due to high inflation rates and its cost, Psaki blamed Republicans?!
Psaki criticized House Republicans for voting against the legislation by arguing that the provisions within Build Back Better will help lower the rising costs of products.
“You saw every single Republican in the House vote against Build Back Better. What were they voting against? Yes, they were voting against the president’s agenda, they were also voting against lowering costs,” Psaki said. “They were voting against lowering costs for childcare, lowering costs for eldercare, lowering costs for healthcare.”
She said “the president will make the case to Manchin that the Senate needs to pass the bill in order to “lower costs for the American people.”
Manchin has raised several concerns about the large spending bill, citing inflation as a reason to delay the passing of the bill.
“The case he will make is that this is exactly the time to pass this bill and move it forward so that we can lower costs for the American people on all of those topics including insulin and areas that really force American families to pinch pennies,” Psaki continued.
