As negotiations continue for the Democrats’ $3.5 reconciliation bill, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) warns that the extraordinary spending could eventually “destroy the currency.” Paul appeared on the latest episode of The Sara Carter Show to talk about the implications of massive federal spending.

“This is sort of Democrats saying ‘hey, free college, free daycare won’t cost you anything.’ But what they don’t tell you is the price of gas is going up the price of your groceries is going up,” Paul said. “And ultimately you pay for this by higher prices. You pay for this through inflation.”

Host Sara Carter pointed out that Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) claims the bill was born out of the GOP’s lackluster COVID-19 relief bill. “Democrats are working to bring this GOP-manufactured default crisis to a swift end and avoid irreparable economic harm to people and families,” Schumer tweeted Wednesday.

However, Paul says all sides are in some way to blame. He said the Democrats also share the blame for the origin of the massive spending bill.

“Both parties do deserve blame for that,” Paul admitted to Carter. “But we have to talk to the American people, because I think we’re in the process of getting to the point where we might even destroy the currency. You don’t want us to become Venezuela. I don’t want our currency to be worthless, right? And when our currency becomes worthless, it means chaos for the world.”

“We’re living in a time where everything is changing,” Carter said. “But we cannot get lazy. We need to pay attention to what is going on here. We need to ask our lawmakers to do their job to do their job and to stop this.”

So far, Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) refuse to advocate for a bill at $3.5 trillion. They both claim they would support a bill that didn’t involve that large a budget. Listen to the full podcast here.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
