Tenney listed a number of false statements she said had been made by Jean-Pierre as she introduced her amendment. Among those statements, Tenney said the press secretary had claimed that illegal immigration had fallen during Biden’s term, that the 2016 election of former President Donald Trump was “stolen” and that a stimulus bill championed by Biden had not increased inflation, among other things. “How can somebody with such a history of deceit continue to serve as the liaison for the president and the American people?” Tenney asked in video posted to YouTube by Forbes. Tenney also said that Jean-Pierre had a history of anti-Semitism, including an Op-Ed she penned that argued that “pro-Israel policies values are not progressive values,” a position Tenney suggested would not be supported even by members of the Democratic Party. Maryland Rep. Steny Hoyer stood immediately to object to the amendment, calling it “another unserious amendment.” “We’ve had over 50 of these,” he said. “Every one that has been put to a roll call vote has lost. This one will as well, I hope.” You can read the original H.R. 4664 in its entirety below. The Hill. The full bill has not yet been approved, but for it to be included in the final budget, the Democrat-controlled Senate would need to approve it, which is highly unlikely.
