Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) reign is over; however, House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) is preserving Pelosi’s traditions of deceit.
Jeffries tweeted that democrats were responsible for the price cap of $35 in terms of insulin.
The price of Insulin is now capped at $35 per month for millions of Americans.
Democrats did that.
For. The. People.

The minority leader is bragging about a provision in the “Inflation Reduction Act” bill that capped insulin prices at $35.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) illustrated that as democrats brag about high inflation, Americans are struggling.
President Biden can’t run from the facts in the latest inflation report – Americans are still struggling with insane prices.

While the bill does cap prices, Jeffries fails to mention that former President Donald Trump is responsible for the prices.
Under the Trump administration, Executive Order 13397 set the price of insulin at $35 a month.
What the Democrats are hiding is that the policy they are taking credit for is actually a policy executed by former President Donald Trump, but was canceled and then reinstated by Biden. As Redstate recently reported, “One of Joe Biden’s first acts in office was to freeze the Department of Health and Human Services’ regulation implementing the executive order, and then revoke that regulation.” In other words, the Biden administration removed the price cap set by Trump and then reinstated it.
Jeffries’ claim that democrats set the price gap illustrates a completely false claim. It was not the democrats who set the cap, it was President Trump.
It has become evident that the minority leader will mirror the former speaker. Jeffries is a hologram of Pelosi who will only seek to carry the former speaker’s torch.
The representatives’ rhetoric resembles the former speaker’s rhetoric. Nancy Pelosi studied the art of the lie and used it to her benefit in politics. Indeed, her successor has learned from her. Jeffries has become the face of the Democratic party. Unlike Pelosi, Republicans should be willing to call him out for his lies.
All in all, the leader of the House Democratic Caucus has shown his willingness to lie for political gain. Nancy Pelosi may have been physically thrust away from the office of the speaker; however, her memory still lives in the politics of Hakeem Jeffries.
