On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) responded to a question on how Democrats are addressing concerns about the economy and inflation by verbally expressing he wishes reporting would mention that the reconciliation bill is paid for.
During a discussion on the spending bills, co-host John Berman asked, “How are Democrats addressing what are growing concerns among the American people, A. about the economy, but B. about inflation and prices, just getting out of this pandemic?”
Durbin responded, “Well, I wish that reporting would include the fact, as the president verbally expressed in his visit to New Jersey, we’re paying for this. What we’re doing, a trillion dollars-plus whatever it transpires to be, is being paid for. And we’re doing it by transmuting the tax code and ascertaining that those making over $400,000 a year are paying their fair portion of taxes, along with corporations, which are immensely remuneratively lucrative and are not paying any federal taxes. Those are things –.”
