Rep. Omar rips Sen. Manchin for not supporting Biden’s BBB: ‘It’s complete bull***t’

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) revealed during a Fox News interview on Sunday that he’s a firm “no” vote on President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better Act, a move that immediately sent both House and Senate Democrats into absolute hysteria.

One of those hysterical responses, according to The Daily Wire, came from Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who suggested during an MSNBC interview on Sunday that Manchin “can’t be trusted” and that his “excuse” for not supporting the social spending legislation was “complete bull***t.”

She went on to argue why she believes Manchin’s constituents in West Virginia would benefit from the legislation, dialing in on long-term elderly care and childcare, among other social issues.

Omar freaks out

The radically progressive House Democrat tried her best to throw out as many talking points with regard to the Democrats’ perceived benefits of passing the $1.75 trillion piece of legislation.

“It is really disheartening to hear him say that he has been trying to get there for the people of West Virginia because that’s a complete lie. The people of West Virginia would greatly benefit from their families having access to long-term elderly care and care for folks with disabilities,” the Minnesota lawmaker said.

She added: “They would benefit from the expansion of the child tax credits; they will benefit from having access to pre-k. There are just so many things that, you know, the people of West Virginia desperately need.”

Omar went on to accuse Manchin of not having the best interests of his constituents in mind after making the announcement that he’s not in favor of Biden’s legacy-level bill. “And we know that he is not working on behalf of their interests, and I really am just completely disappointed and disgusted by his reasoning,” Omar said, adding that she believes his excuse for not supporting the bill are “bulls**t.”

What’s his reasoning?

Manchin made clear during his Fox News interview with host Bret Baier why, aside from the cost of the bill, that he’s unable to support the current iteration, citing fears of rising inflation, and the surging COVID-19 pandemic.

“And you know, my concerns I had, and I still have these concerns and where I’m at right now, the inflation that I was concerned about, it’s not transitory, it’s real, it’s harming every West Virginian,” Manchin said.

The moderate senator added: “And I cannot vote to continue with this piece of legislation. I just can’t. I’ve tried everything humanly possible. I can’t get there. This is a no on this legislation.”
