Nine Democrats shut down Pelosi's voting agenda

Nancy Pelosi is crazy Memes - Imgflip

Last night was supposed to be “the big night” for Joe Biden’s spending agenda in the House of Representatives. Democratic leadership was ready to “muscle through” the first procedural vote on Biden’s $3.5 trillion reconciliation spending bill over the objections of every Republican and even some members of their own party. Unfortunately for them, it appears that they may need to summon the brute squad. The same nine moderate Democrats who penned an op-ed about passing the infrastructure bill first this week did not develop any cracks in their armor. After reportedly spending hours on negotiations, promises, cajoling and threats until well after midnight, the House leadership finally threw in the towel and decided to try again today. No votes were taken on the massive spending bill. (Associated Press)

Confronting moderates, House Democratic leaders tried to muscle President Joe Biden’s multitrillion-dollar budget blueprint over a key hurdle, working overnight to ease an intraparty showdown that risks upending their domestic infrastructure agenda.

Tensions flared and spilled into early Tuesday as a band of moderate lawmakers threatened to withhold their votes for the $3.5 trillion plan. They were demanding the House first approve a $1 trillion package of road, power grid, broadband and other infrastructure projects that’s already passed the Senate.

Despite hours of negotiations at the Capitol, the House chamber came to a standstill and plans were thrown into flux late Monday, as leaders and lawmakers huddled privately to broker an agreement. Shortly after midnight, leaders announced no further votes would be taken until Tuesday’s session.

Welcome to the Democratic Party that can’t take yes for an answer. It seemed pretty clear from that op-ed yesterday that the Gang of Nine centrist Democrats weren’t going to budge on this. And lashing the reconciliation bill to the infrastructure bill would assure that not a single Republican voted for either. Pelosi’s margin of error on any vote is currently sitting at three or four people, so the Fellowship of the Moderates knows they are holding all of the cards.

  • I'm right there with ya, Dee!

  • It looks like Nancy will have to REASON with these holdouts.

  • Time for all members of Congress to get up and fight this socialist ideology 

    • Exactly...

      Our leadership, organizational support, and resourcing should be coming from the GOP... However, they have been acting more like the opposition than our leaders.  Maybe some of them have seen the light and realize the Nation is well on its way to being scuttled... and they are now ready to fight... let's see what transpires over the next few weeks...

  • THE ONLY THING CONGRESS SHOULD BE DOING: IS PULLING PRESSURE OF BIDEN AND OUR MILITARY LEADERS "TO GET THE AMERICANS AND ALLIES OUT OF AFGHANISTAN" AND NOTHING ELSE UNTIL ALL IS BACK HOME-!!! THIS IS A DISGRACE-!!!

  • i believe even the moderate democrats realize these extreme liberals are going to ruin thier party

  • Believe it only when it happens... these Dem's may cave is properly threatened or cajoled with enough pork...  Never trust a politician with a D after their name or any of the RINOs.

  • It sounds good, but I am afraid it is only a threat.  I hate to be cynical, but I think these 9 want something for themselves and once they get it; they will fall in line with the other demockrats.

  • I do NOT trust anyone with a "D" after their name, and that's a fact!
