Sadly, almost all Americans expect politicians and elected officials – especially at the federal level – to be liars.
And, those pols and officials rarely prove the American people wrong as they often tell lies that even a three-year-old knows are falsehoods.
Still, even as low as the bar is for truth-telling in Washington, DC, it takes an absolute whopper to win an award for being the biggest liar in the nation’s Capitol.
And now we know that, according to the Conservative Brief, that United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi – a California Democrat – is the biggest liar in DC.
As the Conservative Brief puts it:
“Congratulations are in order for House Speaker and California Rep. Nancy Pelosi who just won a, as the old man would say in “A Christmas Story,” major award.
“Her claim that Joe Biden and the Democrats’ “Build Back Better” plan would not cost anything has won the prestigious Wall Street Journal “Lie Of The Year,” it reported on Monday.” [emphasis added]
Further, as the Conservative Brief notes, based on CBO scoring, “…the Build Back Better bill would increase the deficit but a staggering $3 trillion over a decade with all of its entitlements.” [emphasis added]
