Senator John Kennedy spoke with Sean Hannity Wednesday night on Nancy Pelosi’s $3 trillion spending bill; saying the Speaker of the House “overplayed her hand” by including billions in unrelated spending.
“I don’t think we’re going to have a fifth bill… Some of my colleagues disagree, but I think it’s less than 50%. I think Speaker Pelosi overplayed her hand. Her bill is so grandiose, it’s not a Coronavirus bill, it’s basically a ‘Let’s remake Western Civilization’ Bill,” said Sen. Kennedy.
“If she takes it back to the Ocasio-Cortez wing in the House, they’re not going to support it. I think she overplayed her hand here,” he added.

KENNEDY on HANNITY: Pelosi’s $3 TRILLION Bill is ‘Dead as Fried Chicken in the Senate’
Senator John Kennedy stopped-by ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night to weigh-in on Speaker Pelosi’s latest stimulus package; calling the $3 trillion proposal “dead as fried chicken” when it reaches the Senate.
“Senator, I don’t want anyone else to die. I don’t want anyone else to get sick. But we did learn from workers that didn’t get sick, they wore masks and gloves,” said Hannity.
“None of us want anyone to die. I don’t think any of us want to see permanent damage done to our economy,” said Sen. Kennedy. “That’s why I’m so disappointed in Speaker Pelosi’s bill… It’s not a serious effort to legislate. It’s dead as fried chicken in the Senate.”

Hannity: Trump's Tax Plan Will Create Millions of Jobs
Speaking during his opening monologue in ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean praised President Trump’s tax plan to cut taxes across the board and unleash the American economy, saying the new policies would create millions of jobs for the forgotten men and women of America.
“The President is following through on what he promised you on the campaign trail,” said Sean. “If President Trump’s plan is approved all of these companies will have billions of dollars, if not more, of extra money. They’re not going to put it in their bank accounts. […] They’re going to invest capital, manufacturing centers, and factories that will create jobs for the millions of forgotten men and women in this country.”
“That’s what we need, that’s what we want, that’s what many of you voted for,” he added. “Everything that the President is proposing is designed to help grow the economy… In many ways, it’s a lot like what President did in the 1980s.”
“Democrats and the mainstream left, establishment media, they’re not telling you that under President Obama 13 million more Americans were on food stamps, 8 million more Americans were put in poverty, 95 million Americans were out of the labor force, the lowest labor participation rates since the 1970s,” said Hannity.
“My advice to the GOP is very simple: Stay the course, follow the Reagan-Kennedy model, and stick to the plan the President is proposing,” he added.
