The Daily Reformer
While Chris Wallace has gotta be one of the biggest weasels at Fox News, he occasionally redeems himself by delivering a brilliant liberal takedown.
And the way he just shredded Buttigieg and Biden’s overly inflated job numbers was a sight to see.
Buttigieg and the Biden administration have been talking up this new infrastructure bill, pretending like it’s the biggest jobs creator since the manufacturing boom, but there’s one big problem, they’re blowing up the numbers big time.
They originally stated that this bill would create 19 million jobs, but in reality, it’s just 2.7 million.
Pretty big difference eh?
Buttigieg tried to defend this bald-faced lie, but Wallace wasn’t having it and kept on hammering until Buttigieg was forced to admit they had made a mistake.
Watch the video:
“I want to give you another fact-check. All of you in the Biden administration has been selling this plan as a huge jobs creator,” Wallace said, sharing a video of Buttigieg from a week earlier touting the plan and claiming that it would create 19 million jobs. “But it turns out the study you are citing from Moody’s Analytics says the economy will add 16.3 million jobs without the infrastructure bill and 2.7 million more with it. So it doesn’t, as you said last Sunday, create 19 million jobs. Again, Secretary Buttigieg, why mislead folks?”
“You’re right, I should have been more precise,” Buttigieg agreed, saying that the real takeaway was that there would be more jobs created with the plan than without it.
“Two million, not 19 million,” Wallace pushed back.
“According to that Moody’s analysis, 2.7 million additional jobs if we pass this package — just further proof that it’s good for the economy and taken as a whole it’s going to add jobs compared to doing nothing,” Buttigieg repeated his point, prompting Wallace to ask whether it was fair to say that he and others within the administration had “exaggerated the jobs impact.”
Can’t believe I’m saying this, but good job Chris Wallace.
It’s great to see this crooked administration finally own up to one of their lies.
