For months, Democrats in the Senate have tried to pass Biden’s radical spending plan. They came up with a “bipartisan” infrastructure bill. But the package was so toxic, so full of hidden taxes, regulation, and nonsense, that only 19 Senate Republicans voted for it.
Most believe the infrastructure bill is a backdoor to Biden’s other agenda: a $3.5 trillion expansion of the welfare state.
Thanks to a “reconciliation” scheme, Democrats in the Senate will be able to pass this other package without Republican support (if moderates like Sinema and Manchin go along with it).
But both of these bills need to pass in the House, which is a much different story. Pelosi claims she wants to quickly pass these bills—which would bankrupt the country. However, RNC head Ronna McDaniel doesn’t think Pelosi has the votes to do it.
Republican National Committee (RNC) chair Ronna McDaniel doubted in an interview with Breitbart News Daily if House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) could pass trillions of dollars in infrastructure spending…
McDaniel argued that Pelosi might not be able to pass either the $1.2 trillion or $3.5 trillion infrastructure bills. She said that the $1.2 trillion bill might not get enough support from progressives, while moderate Democrats may scoff at the large price tag of the $3.5 trillion bill.
“I don’t think Nancy Pelosi is going to take any of this up, frankly. The $1.2 trillion isn’t progressive enough, and I think the $3.5 trillion will have pushback from moderate Democrats who are in trouble ahead of the midterms,” she said. [Source: Breitbart]
McDaniel doubts Pelosi will be able to get enough support for either of these bills. Old Nance talks a big game, but when push comes to shove, she is no leader.
All we’ve seen from the Speaker in recent years has been threats and bully tactics. She is more concerned with her “legacy” and being seen as the woman in charge, than actually negotiating with House members.
We seriously doubt she has any ability to lead her own party, let alone the entire House of Representatives.
Which puts her in a bad place with these two bills. Far-left progressives don’t like the infrastructure bill, because it doesn’t go far enough in their minds. They won’t vote for it, unless it is tied to the $3.5 trillion spending plan.
But moderate Democrats in the House have made it very clear that they won’t vote for the infrastructure bill if it is linked to the other package. They know if they pass that massive socialist bill, they will lose their re-election races next year.
Now, a good leader would be able to get both sides to come together on an agreement. But Pelosi isn’t a good leader. She’s not even a bad leader. She’s no leader at all! She’s just another talking head from D.C. who just loves attention. She can’t get Republicans and Democrats to talk; she can’t even win over members of her own party.
We’ll just have to wait and see if these bills get through at all.
