Hannity calls on Joe Manchin go 'kill' Biden's 'Build Back Better' bill

Hannity to Manchin on Build Back Better: ‘Kill the Bill’

Sean Hannity sounds off on socialist spending package in his Opening Monologue

In his Opening Monologue on Friday, “Hannity” host Sean Hannity called on West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin “kill the bill” in regard to President Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar socioeconomic overhaul legislation “Build Back Better.”

Manchin has called for a straight fiscal analysis of the legislation, accounting for “budget gimmicks” and other mathematical tricks that hide the true cost, according to the New York Post.

With the 50-50 makeup of the Senate and accounting for Vice President Kamala Harris’ tie-breaking role, there must be at least one Democrat to vote against the bill in order to stop its passage. 

White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed President Biden doesn’t "spend much time focused" on the anti-Biden rallying cry.

“Tonight, there’s one Democrat who trusts the [Congressional Budget Office],” he said of Manchin, and in turn criticizing the White House for dismissing CBO scoring just years after Biden himself called their analyses “the gold standard.”

“Citing inflation concerns, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin demanded the complete CBO scoring of “Build Back Better,” with no gimmicks, so-called sunset clauses, or other budget tricks,” the host continued.

“Well, Joe Manchin, here’s the score. Nearly $3 trillion added to the deficit. With inflation already spiraling out of control, it’s time to walk away from this socialist spending spree once and for all,” he said.

“Rising prices are deeply impacting the people of West Virginia, but this bill will make it so much worse. Joe Manchin, what more do you need to see? It’s time to kill this bill.”
