It’s not $0. Will Gottheimer keep his word?

The New York Times reports that the White House is “bracing lawmakers for a disappointing estimate from the CBO,” and Pelosi’s massive tax hikes “will not be fully paid for.”

Congressman Josh Gottheimer insisted he needed to see a CBO score before voting, saying he would vote for the social spending bill if its CBO score matches White House estimates that it would be “fully paid for.”

 So: will Gottheimer keep his word and vote no, now that it’s clear the bill won’t be paid for, or will he walk the plank for Pelosi and prove his act was just a fraud?

“New Jerseyans are watching in fear as Josh Gottheimer and the far-left push legislation that will drive up already sky-high prices and raise taxes on working Americans,” said AAN Press Secretary Cally Perkins. “Gottheimer needs to keep his word and stop this plan from inflicting even more economic pain on New Jersey families.”
