White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki squared-off with reporters Monday over a so-called “secret memo” circulating on Capitol Hill that claims Biden’s Infrastructure price-tag is actually $1 trillion more than early projections from the administration.
“There is a private memo that’s being circulated in the business community and to some Senators that said the $2.25 trillion price tag is $1 trillion off. That there’s many things in there that are omitted in early discussions of the bill,” said one reporter.
“It sounds mysterious, this secret memo… We laid out each component of the package, so I’d encourage you all to get your calculators out and charge that up and see how it compares to the secret memo,” dodged Psaki.
