Clyburn: There’s ‘No Way to Pay’ for Biden’s ‘Zero Cost’ Spending Plan

Friday on MSNBC’s Craig Melvin Reports, House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn confessed that “there’s no way to pay” for President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion “Build Back Better” spending package, which the Biden administration ludicrously claims will come with “zero cost” to the American people.

“I don’t think that anyone ever thought that after doing the rescue plan of over a trillion dollars, that we would come back with a $6 trillion program,” Clyburn stated. “The question is, how do you pay for that? Because we’re committed, Democrats are committed to paying for what we do. We saw the Republicans do a nearly $2 trillion tax cut and pass it onto our children and grandchildren to pay for it sometime in the future. That’s not our philosophy. Our philosophy is, let’s do what we need to do, but let’s pay for it. And so, there’s no way to pay for a $6 trillion program.”

He continued, “And you may recall, I questioned as to whether or not $3.5 trillion could be paid for. In fact, I said at the time that I thought that somewhere between $1.5 and $3.5, we’ll be able to find a sweet spot. And that, it seems to be what’s taking place now. We are close to finding the sweet spot. And it will be between those two numbers.”

Regardless of the final number, the Democrat spending agenda will be disastrous for the country, because it will be oriented toward a far-left, social justice agenda, including the environmentalist boondoggle, the “Great Reset.”

Contempt for President Trump

In an August 16, 2017 interview on CNN, Clyburn said that the United States was becoming more like Nazi Germany with a Hitler-like Donald Trump as president. “We are approaching a place that we’ve been before,” he stated. “We remember from our studies what happened in the 1930s in Germany. I told a business group down at Hilton Head several weeks before the election, that what I saw coming was a replay of what happened in Nazi Germany.” Clyburn then asserted that both Trump and Hitler were elected by the people: “The fact of the matter is Hitler was elected as chancellor of Germany. He did not become a dictator until later when people began to be influenced by his foolishness. We just elected a president and he’s got a lot of foolishness going on, and I’m afraid that too many people are being influenced by that foolishness.”

    Ironic if Clyburn compares Trump to Nazi Germany, yet no mention that the Soviets killed three times more people than the Nazis every did. Not surprising though since Clyburn via the Congressional Black Caucus took a little trip to meet Fidel Castro as *students,* including Clyburn himself, praising the dictator of Cuba to have a “great sense of history and a great sense of self” during May of 2000. Clyburn sent staffers to Cuba and Venezuela in 2010 via the Institute for Policy Studies/Center for Democracy in the Americas groups. Clyburn supported against stopping funding to the mob-tied Teamster Union ACORN group in September of 2009 in the House. Clyburn took Planned Parenthood money and is connected to the Organization for Black Struggle group that were behind the Ferguson riots and linked to the Freedom Road Socialist Organization/CPUSA.

      Thanks for sharing this great information. I didn’t know this about Clyburn’s background. It makes perfect sense as he was clearly pro-Communist and affiliated with radical racist organizations.
