Fox News host calls Build Back Better plan ‘even more nefarious’ than looting, robberies

President Joe Biden has received criticism from both sides of the aisle in response to the size and scope of his massive Build Back Better spending plan.

This week, one Fox News Channel personality likened the bill to a robbery.

“Far-left spending spree”

Fox News Primetime guest host Tammy Bruce began her monologue by calling attention to America’s ongoing crime wave — particularly looting and robberies that have plagued California retailers.

She then turned her attention toward “something even more nefarious” emanating from the White House.

“There is another smash-and-grab looting you might not really have heard about recently, but it’s going on right under our noses and it’s from the inside of the Washington swamp,” Bruce continued.

Describing Biden’s proposed bill as a “far-left spending spree,” she warned her audience that it represents “a quieter and sneakier form of looting and mass robbery.”

The domestic spending package would lead to the “destruction of the American middle class” by expanding entitlements and implementing amnesty for undocumented immigrants, the host argued.

“We’ve got to make sure we get this right”

“Build Back Better is Washington’s version of smash and grab looting of the American taxpayer,” Bruce added. “Destroying Americans’ sense of self, their sense of independence, their sense of sovereignty and our sense in general of prosperity.”

Although House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) managed to push the bill through her chamber, the proposal still faces an uphill battle in an evenly divided Senate.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) has indicated that he hopes to pass the measure “before Christmas,” but at least two members of his own party are still not on board. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have called for revisions to the roughly $2 trillion bill before they will be willing to vote in favor of it.

In a statement this week, Manchin cited the current level of inflation across the nation’s economy, adding: “The unknown we’re facing today is much greater than the need that people believe in this aspirational bill that we’re looking at. And we’ve got to make sure we get this right. We just can’t continue to flood the market as we’ve done.”

Schumer and other Senate Democrats are pushing forward with negotiations in an effort to pass the bill by the slimmest of margins. If they are successful, critics like Bruce agree that American taxpayers will be in some serious trouble.
