Nancy Pelosi’s delusional behavior is hurting her own party.
She’s willing to throw moderates under the bus just to get her own way.
Nancy Pelosi had a breakdown that could cause other Democrats to collapse.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi represents California’s 12th District which is entirely within San Francisco. It is one of the most secure Democratic seats within the nation.
Yet Pelosi seems to be completely unsympathetic to the plight of moderate Democrats who know that they will be hurt by the $3.5 trillion package that Pelosi is trying to drive through.
Democrats from moderate states are trying to carefully calculate what will be best for their future careers.
Pelosi snapped at reporters on Wednesday who questioned whether she was handling moderates with tact.
“It looks like the debt limit extension might not advance in the Senate. Why get mad at members, why twist the arms of moderates if this is not going to move anywhere?” a reporter questioned Pelosi, referring to moderate Democrats like Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ).
Pelosi glared at the reporter, before angrily asking, “What are you talking about?!”
“We have a responsibility to uphold, to lift up the full faith and credit of the United States of America,” Pelosi told the reporter, according to The Western Journal. “That’s what we have to do. These members have all voted for this last week. So if they’re concerned about how it might be in an ad, it’s already in an ad. It’s already in an ad.”
The House Budget Committee has even considered increasing the price of the $3.5 trillion according to The Hill.
“So let us give every confidence every step of the way that we will do that,” the leading Democrat continued. “We cannot predicate our actions in the House on what could happen in the Senate. We can when we’re coming to agreement on a bill. But in terms of this, I have no patience for people not voting for that.”
But Pelosi has no choice but to be patient with the moderates within her party since she can’t pass her package without the help of every Senate Democrat.
Sen. Joe Manchin has criticized the $3.5 trillion bill which he said was creating social welfare programs that “spend for the sake of spending.”
“What I have made clear to the President and Democratic leaders is that spending trillions more on new and expanded government programs, when we can’t even pay for the essential social programs, like Social Security and Medicare, is the definition of fiscal insanity,” Manchin said in a statement Wednesday which places the entire bill in jeopardy.
