(Washington, D.C.) – As consumer prices – on essential items such as food, energy, and building materials – continue to rise unabated, leading Democrats are pushing back on the notion that the coming hyperinflation is out of place in their newest multi-trillion dollar “Infrastructure” bill.
“The devaluing of the U.S. dollar to next to nothing so that we can reward our political cronies is infrastructure,” House Majority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D) told CNN.
”This infrastructure bill only allocates $327 billion toward Drag Queen Story Hours,” Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez bemoaned to her over 12 million Twitter followers. “That number needs to be much higher if we’re going to destroy the currency by summer.”
Responsible Savers Racist
In a New York Times op-ed, Sen. Corey Booker (D-NJ) denounced those “racists” who do not wish to see their savings destroyed for no reason.
“If you’ve scrimped and saved and sacrificed your whole life, then you’re probably white, and therefore racist,” Booker wrote. “With this infrastructure bill we’re going to put an end to your hateful violence once and for all.”
