The Biden administration has officially kicked off the Kamala Harris “roadshow,” and it didn’t take long for people to remember why Harris was so unlikeable on the 2020 campaign trail.
While speaking with reporters, Harris lashed out when asked why Biden’s administration feels the need to “sell” the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan if it’s so popular.
Harris spoke to reporters during a visit to Las Vegas, as part of the White House’s “Help Is Here” tour, which they say is “to communicate directly and clearly with Americans about how the American Rescue Plan is helping them and their families and making sure they understand how to utilize benefits available to them.”
“Madam Vice President, the White House said — the White House has said repeatedly that this is a very popular law,” the reporter asked. “If that’s the case, why is it important to get out and sell it?”
“It’s not selling it,” Harris objected. “It’s literally letting people know their rights. Right?”
“It’s kind of like you — you buy a product, you’ve already been sold a product, but you need some directions on the box usually (laughs in Kamala). Right?” she asked, rhetorically.
“And so this is about, ‘Hey, know that you’re entitled to this. File your taxes so that you can speed up the benefits that you’re going to receive. Talk to your friends and neighbors about getting vaccinations because we are speeding up the delivery and the supply of vaccinations in sites like UNLV,’” Harris continued.
“These are the things we’re doing to let people know what they’re entitled to and spread the word. Think of it more as a public education campaign. This is what’s happening, this is what you’re entitled to receive, and so go out there and get it. Okay,” she added.
Another reporter asked Harris about any planned tax increases to cover all the “Help” that is “Here.”
“Part of what the president and I are talking about is also reminding people to file their taxes,” she said.
“We’ve got 30 days to do it before April 15. There are a number of folks who don’t file taxes if their income is too low, but it would actually help them get their benefits quicker and maybe even direct deposits if they file their taxes now, so we want to encourage people to do that so that they know what their rights are right now,” Harris added.
Watch the exchange below:
As reported by Mediaite, two different reporters asked Harris if a tax increase was being planned in a forthcoming spending bill, to which she replied, “We haven’t really figured out what the next phase is going to be, to be honest with you.”
There has never been a vice president in history who has had such a prominent role in the presidency as Harris.
The emphasis on Harris shouldn’t surprise the American people considering Biden’s mental state continues to decline.
Conservative pundit Dan Bongino, who is also a former Secret Service agent, told Fox News host Sean Hannity that his sources inside the agency are telling him Joe Biden’s mental state is deteriorating to the point it is becoming very problematic.
Bongino went on to say that even sources he has outside of the Secret Service but who are still in Biden’s orbit know that he’s not just “lost a step” but he’s lost the ability to function adequately.
