It was during a press briefing on Tuesday that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki admitted something about President Joe Biden’s vision for America during these trying times that immediately raised eyebrows across the country.
According to The Daily Wire, Psaki said that during this unprecedented time of dealing with a pandemic, Biden desires to “make fundamental change in our economy,” adding that he believes if such changes can’t be done while Democrats are in power, it might be a long time before they get another chance.
Psaki appeared to be referencing the continued push to sell the country, and Congress, on passing a $3.5 trillion progressive spending package.
What did she say?
Psaki’s seeming admission about the president’s ultimate agenda sent shockwaves through social media.
“The president wants to make fundamental change in our economy, and he feels coming out of the pandemic is exactly the time to do that,” the press secretary said.
She added: “And if we don’t do it now, if we don’t address the cost of childcare, to go back to Josh’s question earlier, if we don’t address the climate crisis, if we don’t ensure that universal pre-k is a reality now, we’re not going to have the same opportunity to do it for some time.”
Conservative commentator Benny Johnson tweeted out a clip of Psaki’s admission, captioning the video with, “THEY JUST SAID THE QUIET PART OUT LOUD.”

New talking point?
As TheBlaze noted, Psaki, during Tuesday’s briefing, repeated the “fundamental change” line several times, signaling that it could be the latest talking point for the Biden-Harris administration.
“No matter how you cut it, though, his view is we can still do something historic and that will fundamentally change the economy for the American people,” Psaki said prior to the aforementioned comments.
Oddly enough, she would go on to repeat the line once again while discussing the state of the current congressional negotiations taking place regarding Biden’s Build Back Better act, saying the administration’s top priority is to “make some fundamental changes.”
Disturbingly for many, Psaki repeated the phrase a final time toward the end of her briefing, telling reporters, “And then we can move forward on key components of the president’s agenda that will fundamentally change the economy and make the lives of so many people in this country better.”
