Yet more of them, this time centered on jobs for American citizens.
Here’s what Moody’s Analytics said about President Joe Biden’s $2.2 trillion American Jobs Plan Spend-a-Thon to which is attached some bucks for actual infrastructure work:
The firm estimated that the US economy will add roughly 16.3 million jobs between the fourth quarter of 2020 and the fourth quarter of 2030. If Biden’s proposal were to pass, Moody’s Analytics economists estimated that the US economy would add 19 million jobs over the same time period—indicating the proposal would be responsible for about 2.7 million jobs.
Here’s what Biden’s hand-picked Transportation Secretary “Pothole” Pete Buttigieg said.
The American Jobs Plan is about a generational investment. It’s going to create 19 million jobs. And we’re talking about economic growth that’s going to go on for years and years. It’s time for America to lead the way again. And those 19 million jobs we’re about to create go way beyond some quarterly or monthly report.
Twice he lied, in quick succession.
Biden’s White House National Economic Council Director Brian Deese was completely direct in his lie:
Moody’s suggests it would create 19 million jobs[.]
And then Biden personally lied about what Moody’s actually said:
Independent analysis shows that if we pass this plan, the economy will create 19 million jobs….
It makes me wonder whether anyone in this administration is capable of discriminating truth from fiction. Or whether they can, but they don’t care; they’ll just mouth whatever they think they can get away with that will benefit them politically.
