Barasso slams Biden for pushing through $1.9T 'liberal wish list'

​GOP Sen. John Barrasso on Sunday hit President Biden for ​pushing his $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package through Congress despite pledging to work with Republicans — calling the bill a “liberal wish list”

The relief bill passed the Senate on Saturday and the House last week without one Republican vote.

“Ten Republicans went to the White House and said, ​’​Al​l ​right, let’s work together.​’​ Instead, the White House chief of staff said this is the most progressive, the most progressive piece of domestic legislation in a generation​,” Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said on NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” referring to Ron Klain.

“​This was never about getting people back to work or kids back to school or the disease behind us. That’s where it should have been focused.​”​

Instead of enlisting Republican support for a bipartisan bill, he said the president and Democrats passed “a liberal wish list of liberal spending just basically.”​

Even though the Biden package had strong support from the American public, Barrasso predicted that will soon diminish.​​

“When people find out what’s in this bill, they’re going to lose a lot of any enthusiasm they may have for it right now,” he said.

“Because this was not really about coronavirus in terms of the spending. This was a liberal wish list of liberal spending just basically filled with pork. It didn’t need to be this way​.”
