DOUBLE-SPEAK LABELS: Biden's 'Zero Cost' Budget Will Cost $367 Billion Toward National Deficit

The Congressional Budget Office released its much-anticipated score of Democrats' social spending package on Thursday evening, finally putting a price tag on President Biden's budget — a cost that will ultimately be paid by American taxpayers. 

Contrary to the White House's repeated insistence that the president's budget would "cost zero dollars" and larger claim that his legislative agenda wouldn't add a penny to the federal deficit, the CBO says the "Build Back Better" budget reconciliation package "would result in a net increase in the deficit totaling $367 billion over the 2022-2031 period."

Yet again, the Biden administration has been caught lying to the American people with a smile on its collective face. Even though very few people have accused them of being on top of things, it's impossible to imagine they didn't know a CBO score such as the one released tonight was coming. Yet they continued their obfuscation campaign, hoping they could get enough Americans to buy their lies to put pressure on their representatives in Congress to pass the president's disaster of a budget reconciliation package. 

While the crew here at Townhall never believed Biden, Psaki, or the rest of the administration when they promised that a massive and woke budget would come at zero cost, there's finally an official record of the true cost of their plans to expand government, limit freedom, and make the federal government even more clumsy and ineffective.

In addition, CBO scoring of the separate titles within Biden's Build Back Better Act reveal other areas in which the lofty promises made by the White House didn't pan out in reality:

Will President Biden or his administration care that they've been caught in a long-running lie? Probably not. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is moving ahead with a vote on the budget bill as of Thursday night, CBO score be damned. And even before the official price tag was released, the White House began a narrative aimed at discrediting the Congressional Budget Office, saying its nonpartisan analysts weren't even capable of scoring something like the Build Back Better Act.
