Hypocritical House Moderates Demand CBO Score for Better Rebuilding, But Support Deficit Addition of Bipartisan Infrastructure


There is serious hypocrisy on display in the House of Representatives as moderates demand a CBO score for Build Back Better while supporting a bipartisan infrastructure bill that adds to the deficit.

Sahil Kapur of NBC News tweeted:

Moderate worry has nothing to do with debt. They are trying to save their seats and are terrified of voting for programs that benefit families, children, the poor, the middle class and our elders because they think they will be labeled socialist next year.

As someone who has followed the midterm Congressional election for nearly 20 years, I can say with some certainty that no matter how the moderate Democrats in the House vote, they will be labeled socialists. It does not matter.

The moderates put their own interests ahead of the good of the country. They were elected to take the tough votes, not dodge and hide behind CBO scoring demands.

The vast majority of Americans want these laws passed. Moderates will have a big problem with Democratic voters in their districts if they keep playing these games with Build Back Better.
