Musk responded to a headline from the Babylon Bee that read “Biden Goes Double Or Nothing On National Debt By Placing $30 Trillion On The Bengals” by arguing that there is nothing comical about the debt growing under President Joe Biden.
“Something has got to give.”
The Biden administration has continuously pushed a left-wing social spending agenda, and experts say it has done so in spite of fiscal consequences, according to a report.
Had the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Act been passed with an extension of its provisions, the national debt of the United States would have grown by 24% within the span of 30 years, according to the Penn Wharton Budget Model.
“People are saying we’re going to give you free college, free cars, free cellphones, free this, free that,” Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, said last year as the debt closed in on $30 trillion.
“Everything in life will be free. You won’t have to work anymore,” he said. “The problem is there are ramifications. Money doesn’t grow on trees — money’s got to come from somewhere.”
