Nancy Pelosi is drawing one line in the sand that took Joe Biden by surprise
It’s been assumed that Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and Chuck Schumer are all working together to ram Biden’s socialist agenda through Congress.
But Pelosi appears to be going rogue.
Nancy Pelosi is drawing one line in the sand that took Joe Biden by surprise.
Joe Biden nearly derailed his own infrastructure bill by declaring he would veto it unless the Senate also passed Bernie Sanders’ proposed Green New Deal and socialist welfare state spending bill that could total up to $6 trillion.
Republicans negotiating the infrastructure bill realized Democrats played them for chumps and were using the GOP to create political cover for Democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin to vote for Sanders’ bill.
Biden then spent the entire weekend pleading with Republicans that he didn’t really mean what he said.
California Congresswoman Katie Porter blew up that scam.
In an appearance on MSNBC, Porter said Nancy Pelosi would hold any infrastructure bill until the House passed the Green New Deal and welfare state spending bill.
“Well, I think she made clear that we are wholly committed to passing this infrastructure bill, that we are glad that Republicans are stepping up and committing to delivering for the American people on infrastructure, and that we understand that part of building back better is doing that infrastructure work, but building back better also means making sure that no American is left behind in our economy. So we are going to have to use the reconciliation process to address some of our other economic needs, including things like universal child care, expanding Medicare, there are other — paid family leave. This plan fundamentally that President Biden has put forward is about work and workers, and those things go together like a hand in a glove. And so, we have to do both of them, and that is our plan to move them both forward,” Porter claimed.
Right now, Democrats don’t have 60 votes in the Senate for the infrastructure bill or 50 votes for Bernie Sanders’ socialist spending bill.
Democrats believe their only chance to round up the votes is to move these bills on a two-track path.
But if Democrats keep insisting that bills are linked, Republicans are going to walk away.
And that could throw Joe Biden’s entire Presidency into chaos if his number one agenda item goes down in flames.
