Karine Jean-Pierre: GOP Conditions On Debt-Ceiling Deal Will Give Kids Asthma And ‘Literally Melt Bones’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed Friday that Republicans had put forth proposals that would cause more children to develop asthma and "literally melt bones."

    Jean-Pierre's remarks, which she punctuated with a slide show during Friday's press briefing, came in response to the ongoing battle over the debt ceiling. President Joe Biden and Senate Democrats have called for a "clean" debt ceiling increase, while House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) countered with an increase tied to some spending cuts and policy changes.


    "The president's bold climate and environmental justice agenda could not stand in starker contrast to the dangerous proposals MAGA House Republicans are putting forward," Jean-Pierre began, and then drew everyone's attention to the slide displayed on the screen behind her.

    "While President Biden is fighting to clean up toxic pollution and lower costs through clean energy tax credit, Speaker McCarthy unveiled a ransom note holding our economy hostage," Jean-Pierre asserted. "It's a 320-page plan to kill jobs, fill our cities with smog, and give asthma to our children."

    Jean-Pierre went on to say that McCarthy's conditions included the rollback of climate initiatives that had been added to the Inflation Reduction Act, and she warned that the consequences of abandoning those policies would create a situation that was even more dire.

    "It would make it easier for oil companies to use toxic chemicals that cause severe burns, damage people's eyes, and quite literally melt bones," she added, pausing there for added emphasis.

    She predicted that cities would once again "fill with heavy smog" as the Clean Air Act was weakened, adding that it would "dirty our air and poison the lungs of our children."

    Jean-Pierre concluded by saying that Biden would never stand for such proposals, claiming again that they would necessarily bring about a "climate and health disaster."

    The press secretary's remarks come as several House Democrats have urged President Biden to at least meet with Speaker McCarthy, worrying that the American people will see his failure to do so as a failure to do whatever is needed to prevent default in the near term.


    McCarthy's proposal, if the conditions are met, would increase the debt ceiling and postpone the debate on further adjustments for at least a year. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has said the Republican counter-offer would be dead-on-arrival in the Senate.

Considering how abjectly corrupt and civilly abusive the Left has become regarding the corrosive effect of their elected leaders; their entrenched and ruling bureaucracy; employing their failed Education Industry as Indoctrinators; their collusive private sector operators, such as the terminally discredited Legacy Media and Big Tech censorship of Free Speech: What will be the best course forward for hardworking Middle Americans, including the Patriot Class?
  Withdraw from society, go underground and plan for a resurgence when it is feasible to do so.
  Work within the confines of better policy by the People's government, once good sense and sanity is restored in the electorate at large, to achieve such.
  Are you a crazy, nut-job Insurrectionist? Everything is perfect within our plan to achieve our intended goals for the Socialist Left.
  Secession to form a true Constitutional Republic.

Understanding that this fragile Republic of the self-governed is in a precarious space in our nation's vast history: What is your honor bound patriotic duty in helping to sustain the continuance of these United States of America?
  I will depend on my Democratic Socialist politicians to continue to march hard toward the Left to provide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for all who think and do as they are told.
  I will defend the Constitution of the United States of America, and support all elected leaders who pledge to protect and insure the continued sovereignty of this Representative Republic.
  I am very concerned about maintaining my current life style without working. I was told that as long as I vote Democrat, I had nothing to worry about ... but now I worry.

In the face of a known scandal finally being revealed by the corrupt Legacy Media regarding Joe Biden, his Mishandling of Classified Documents and his long history of Influence Peddling to our Foreign Adversaries for Personal and Familial Profit: What do you believe the outcome will be in America's Leftist practice of a Two Tiered Justice System?
  Nothing will happen since the Democratic Socialist Left is corrupt to the core, and their non patriot ambitions are only the control of power.
  Justice WILL be served, but NOT without a tremendous fight by those willing to save the Republic.
  Why can't everyone else understand that the Left is special because we care so much for our own, especially the well being of the president and his family, especially Hunter.
  What difference does it make; I am a product of a failed public education system.
