Top GOP Senator Barrasso Hit’s Biden’s ‘Alice In Wonderland Logic’: ‘He’s The Mad Hatter Out Here’

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, tore in President Joe Biden and the Democrats during a Fox News interview on Sunday, saying that Biden trying to pass a multi-trillion dollar partisan social spending bill while inflation is skyrocketing was equivalent to “Alice in Wonderland logic.”

Barrasso, who made the remarks during an interview on “Fox News Sunday” with fill-in host Trace Gallagher, was asked if now was the “time to inject trillions of dollars back into the economy.”

“No, we have record inflation right now,” Barrasso said. “I view this as a back-breaking bill for the country with the kind of expenses, the spending, the adding to the debt, the inflation, the taxes that are going to hit the American people. And, you know, for Joe Biden to say we have to spend even more money on top of inflation, I mean, to me, this is ‘Alice in Wonderland’ logic. He’s the Mad Hatter out here.”

“He continues to try to mislead the American people, first saying the cost will be zero, zero, zero, when the budget analysts have said it’s going to be hundreds of billions of dollars added to the debt,” he continued. “People’s taxes are going to go up. They — he said, oh, no, only if you make over $400,000 a year. That’s not what the tax experts are telling us. They say one out of three middle class Americans will pay more in taxes. So, on all of these issues and inflation across the board, people saying, we’re looking at persistent inflation. We cannot ignore inflation. That is the thing that’s going to hurt our economy the most.”
