Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) said on Fox News Sunday that President Joe Biden is using “Alice in Wonderland logic” around his social spending bill and that Biden was the “Mad Hatter.”
“We have record inflation right now,” Barasso said. “I view this as a back-breaking bill for the country with the kind of expenses, the spending, the adding to the debt, the inflation, the taxes that are going to hit the American people. For Joe Biden to say ‘We have to spend even more money on top of inflation,’ to me, this is ‘Alice in Wonderland’ logic. He’s the Mad Hatter out here.”
Barasso also spoke about the impending debt ceiling limit, and blamed Democrats for the spending that necessitated raising the ceiling again in December.
“This is all about Democrat spending. This is 100 percent on them. If you get rid of all of the gimmicks of accounting, this bill that the Democrats are proposing is $4 trillion in additional spending. There’s not a single Republican who’s going to vote for the bill or to raise the debt ceiling. This is on the Democrats.”
If Democrats can get Sens. Joe Manchin (WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) on board with their plans, things might just be about to get a lot worse than it already is.
