ABC Host Tells WH Press Secretary Biden Admin Is Acting “Orwellian”
“How can you call it the Inflation Reduction Act when the nonpartisan experts say it’s not gonna bring inflation down?”
In a rare moment, ABC host Jonathan Karl told White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that the Biden Administration is using “Orwellian” language by referring to the “Inflation Reduction Act”.
Karl asked Jean-Pierre “Isn’t it almost Orwellian? How can you call it the Inflation Reduction Act when the nonpartisan experts say it’s not gonna bring inflation down?”
Jean-Pierre responded by telling Karl “I appreciate the question.”
She then managed to prove Karl’s point by claiming “It is going to fight inflation, it has been proven and said by economists across the board, on the Republican side and the Democrat side.”

Biden himself spent much of last week suggesting that there is NO inflation, despite federal Consumer Price Index data highlighting that annual inflation dropped only marginally to 8.5 percent, still nearly a four-decade high:
“Today, we received news that our economy had 0 percent inflation in the month of July, 0 percent,” Biden said, adding “Here’s what that means: while the price of some things go up. went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result? Zero inflation last month.”
This claim was dutifully repeated by Jean-Pierre:
This is wild. Do you know this is a lie?

Doocy: Deese said in 2008…’economists have a definition…of a recession, which is two consecutive quarters of negative growth’ & yesterday he said, two negative quarters…is not the technical definition of a recession.
KJP: It is not.

Economists who disagree with the regime messaging are being ‘fact checked’.
