Far-Left Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is now proposing that Americans fight inflation by passing the enormous ‘Build Back Better’ plan, which would dump trillions of dollars into an economy that is already flush with printed dollars.
As The Daily Wire reports:
To solve the problem, Democratic lawmakers are renewing their push for President Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” plan — a multitrillion-dollar social welfare bill.
“We fight inflation by lowering costs for working people,” Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) tweeted. “And we lower costs by passing Build Back Better.”
We fight inflation by lowering costs for working people.
And we lower costs by passing Build Back Better.

Other progressive legislators echoed her belief:
Families are struggling with soaring prices on everyday essentials like groceries, gas, housing, and health care. Meanwhile, big corporations are making record profits. We need to pass #BuildBackBetter and boost competition to lower prices.https://t.co/vERt6iOg7o

Republicans have no plan to address the global inflation problem.
Experts say the #BuildBackBetter Act will reduce inflationary pressures on the middle class by cutting taxes for working families & by reducing the costs of child care & prescription drugs.https://t.co/XSaRDYYBAL

Meanwhile, White House Deputy Communications Director Kate Berner shared a news clip of Jared Bernstein — a member of the Council of Economic Advisers — arguing that the Build Back Better plan will “ease inflationary pressures.” He also asserted that rather than discouraging work, the legislation’s new social programs would “boost labor supply.”

Indeed, President Biden himself suggested on Wednesday that the White House is “making progress” on inflation.
