MSNBC host Tiffany Cross declared on Thursday’s “The ReidOut” that Americans don’t really care how much President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda costs, asserting the elitist viewpoint that they are far more interested in paying their own personal bills.

Following Democratic strategist Adrienne Elrod outrageously wishing that the Build Back Better social spending spree was still “a $6 trillion bill” and pointing out that even the watered-down version is still historic, Cross chimed in that the cost of the legislation was not of much interest to the American people.

“I feel like a lot of the coverage this year was focused on how much this plan costs and I think that matters to maybe inside-the-Beltway people, but American people across this country are not interested in how much it costs,” she posited. “They have their own household debt to worry about. They want to know what policy will impact their lives tomorrow.”

Skyrocketing inflation is impacting many, many Americans. Even though roughly half of those surveyed in a recent poll from Morning Consult seemed to back Build Back Batter, they still fear the $1.75 trillion price tag and how it will worsen inflation. The pork-filled bill is a Democratic orgy of spending that includes climate change, housing, healthcare, child care, and a very long list of other wish list items from the left.

During that same segment, Cross ranted against Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) because he is opposing the Build Back Better legislation and is standing in the way of its passing. The media, progressives, and Democrats, in general, are furious with him over his stance. Host Joy Reid, whom Cross was sitting in for, has previously called Manchin the “absolute worst” on her show for not playing ball over the bill. His opposition effectively kills the bill as the Senate is evenly divided.

Elrod delusionally believes that the bill will pass sometime in 2022. But with midterm elections coming up, where it is widely believed the Democrats are in for a beating, nothing is for sure currently. Their razor-thin majority was already hobbling the Democratic Party, but if Republicans widely prevail in the midterms, they stand to lose the majorities in both the Senate and the House making Biden a lame duck President.

“I think at the end of the day whatever we pass is going to be historic, and it’s going to be something we haven’t seen passed in Congress in several decades, and that’s going to be a big thing and a good thing for American people,” she declared.

Progressives such as Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have called the bill a “bold attempt” to address working-class family needs while getting wealthier Americans to pay their “fair share of taxes,” according to Fox News.

Most Americans don’t see it that way, They view the bill as a Marxist big-government spending spree and despite what Cross promotes, they are very concerned with the monolithic price tag of the Build Back Better agenda.
