Nancy Pelosi isn’t used to people in her own party telling her no.
Recently though, the senior member of the House has been facing some opposition from a few newcomers to the Democrat party.
And while the world focuses on the Afghanistan crisis, Nancy Pelosi is still trying to put the country further in debt.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been around a long time and is a master at the game of politics.
She knows how to get her way and most certainly isn’t accustomed to other Democrats standing up to her.
So, naturally, Pelosi assumed ramming through a so-called $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill would be easy.
And, while she’s at it, she wants to push through a separate $3.5 trillion spending bill.
It should be easy for a woman with such seniority and experience to manipulate the system.
Not so fast.
For perhaps the first time in her tenure as Speaker, Pelosi is facing opposition from her own people, and, quite frankly, she doesn’t know how to handle it.
The $1.2 trillion “infrastructure” bill is sort of a down payment on the Green New Deal.
It also serves as political cover for the Democrats who support the $3.5 trillion bill that Bernie Sanders is drafting.
Pelosi’s problem is that as Biden’s approval ratings plummet, Democrats in unsafe Congressional seats want to vote on the $1.2 trillion bill now.
But, newcomers to the party like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are dragging their feet.
Ocasio-Cortez and her band of socialist cohorts are afraid that if the vote on the $1.2 trillion bill happens now, basically make the two bills independent of each other, those Democrats who are nervous about losing their seats will fold and vote against the $3.5 trillion Bernie Sanders bill.
Pelosi attempted to make all sides happy by proposing the passing of a rule advancing both bills simultaneously.
Unfortunately for the Speaker, nine moderate Democrats from swing districts said absolutely not and demanded an immediate vote on the $1.2 trillion joke of an “infrastructure” bill.
No doubt, the closer the 2022 midterms get, the more careful many Democrat lawmakers will be about what they vote on.
Many are predicting an absolute bloodbath for the Democrats in 2022, with Republicans taking back control and undoing much of what Pelosi has put in place.
The more Joe Biden’s approval rating drops, the more likely that scenario becomes.
