On Sunday’s This Week, Republicans taught ABC the 123s of how President Biden’s so-called Build Back Better (BBB) agenda was harmful to the middle-class and largely benefited more affluent Americans in blue states. And between Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, chief anchor and Clinton lackey George Stephanopoulos was in for a rough time.
After pressing Cassidy, who’s a doctor, about vaccinations, Stephanopoulos leaned on White House talking points to push back on his guest’s opposition to the Build Back Better bill. “But you're against the Build Back Better plan. You say it's going to fuel inflammation. The administration’s put forward 17 Nobel Prize-winning economists that said it won't,” he noted.
Cassidy immediately shot back by noting that those cherry-picked economists were looking at an outdated version of the bill. “If you go back, Glenn Kessler in The Washington Post looked at them. They said that was the bill they had then, not the bill they have now,” he said.
