Press Secretary Jen Psaki says $3.5T spending bill costs nothing for people earning less than $400K

 Q    Thank you.  Following up on something that you just said: You said that the President is going to have a virtual meeting with House progressives to talk about how this Build Back Better package is now going to be smaller than $3.5 trillion.  But you have been saying that it costs zero.  So, are you now admitting that the plan does not cost zero?  Or is it less than zero?

MS. PSAKI:  Well, let’s — let’s not dumb this down for the American public here.  What we’re talking about is how much the topline investments are, which are all paid for, so therefore, it costs zero.  No matter what the cost or size of the topline investments are, we have ways to pay for it. 

So, the point is — that’s important to the American public, all of your viewers too — is that this is not going to cost the American public a dollar.  This is going to — we are going to pay for this by asking corporations, the highest incomes — so, people under $400,000, I should say — corporations, highest income to cover the cost of these necessary investments.
