Biden’s Plan to Tackle Bidenflation Debunked Before It’s Even Unveiled

'Experts I spoke to still scoffed at the idea that President Biden is personally responsible for having reduced the deficit... '

(Headline USAPresident Joe Biden attempted to blame Republicans for soaring prices and rising inflation rates, but not even the leftists at CNN and the Washington Post were buying it.

In a speech addressing inflation on Tuesday, Biden argued that Republicans are the ones without a plan to address the economic crisis, and accused them of seeking to raise taxes on millions of Americans.

However, as the Washington Post noted in a fact check last month, the tax proposal Biden referred to is not the GOP’s policy position. It was released by Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., earlier this year but has not been endorsed by the party.

“Scott’s tax plan is certainly ripe for political fodder, but the White House is pushing its luck here,” the Post wrote.

“Scott is a Republican, and he is in Congress and part of the GOP leadership. But his snippet of an idea, such as it is, cannot be labeled a ‘congressional Republican’ plan. No legislation has been crafted, and no other Republican lawmakers have announced their support.”

CNN also questioned Biden’s claim that he was reducing inflationary pressure by decreasing the federal deficit.

“Let me remind you again,” Biden said on Tuesday, “I reduced the federal deficit.”

CNN reporter Daniel Dale, however, objected to Biden’s assertion and argued that there is no evidence Biden’s policies are the reason the federal deficit has decreased.

“Experts I spoke to still scoffed at the idea that President Biden is personally responsible for having reduced the deficit. In fact, one advocate of deficit reduction, Marc Goldwein of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, told me that this claim is almost bizarro world, a reversal of reality,” Dale told CNN.
