House Moderates Slam Pelosi and Progressive for Infrastructure Failure

Senate Republicans handed Joe Biden a massive win, but he wanted more.

Rather than pushing for the $1.2 trillion bipartisan deal to be passed, Joe Biden and House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) decided to double down.

The delay has caused bipartisan support for the bill to fade, and now moderates who needed the win are starting to let Pelosi have it.

Take the Win

Getting a bipartisan win in Congress these days is like hitting the jackpot at the casino.

You get the win, you lock up a profit, and either go home or dabble just for fun.

When 19 Senate Republicans approved the bipartisan infrastructure deal, it was like Joe hit a Royal on a max bet poker machine on his first draw.

Joe and Nancy didn’t take the profit… hell, they didn’t even pull their original $100 out of the machine.

Instead, they continued to play, and now they have less than $100 and are running out of money.

With support across the aisle no longer present because of the reconciliation bill, Pelosi needs everyone on the Democrat side to support the bill, and she no longer has that.

This had led to a bit of an uprising among moderate Democrats who needed a win just as bad as Joe Biden.

Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL) stated, “While I have great respect for the Speaker, I believe her decision to again delay a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill is wrong.”

Murphy has also accused her fellow House Dems of using the larger bill to have leverage over those that do not support reconciliation, and she is not alone.

Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.) stated that Pelosi had “breached her firm, public commitment to Members of Congress and the American people to hold a vote and to pass the once-in-a-century bipartisan infrastructure bill.”

He continued, “We cannot let this small faction on the far left … destroy the President’s agenda and stop the creation of two million jobs a year — including for the millions of hard-working men and women of labor.

“We were elected to achieve reasonable, commonsense solutions for the American people — not to obstruct from the far wings.

“This far-left faction is willing to put the President’s entire agenda, including this historic bipartisan infrastructure package, at risk. They’ve put civility and bipartisan governing at risk.

“I will not stop fighting for the people I represent, and I will not stop fighting to get the historic, bipartisan infrastructure bill across the finish line — to support the communities, families, and workers of New Jersey.”

There is one problem with Gottheimer’s statement.

He is giving Joe Biden a pass, but it was Biden that encouraged Pelosi to pull the bill so they could tie the two pieces of legislation together.

Gottheimer and Murphy are members of the Blue Dog Coalition, which consists of 19 moderate Democrats in the House.

Pelosi has only three votes to spare in the House, so perhaps she should be paying more attention to the Blue Dogs than the Squad.

    1. Time to get as many RATs as possible out of service in 2022 and 2024. We can not get our country back when they cheat and lie as is their way of life.

    2. FU.K ALL DEMOCRATS AND PIGLOSI NEEDS TOO BE KICKED OUT OF OFFICE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE ALONG WITH BIDEN, THAT HO OF A VICE PRESIDENT AND MANY OTHERS. FU.K THEM ALL!!

  1. Biden is out in “left field”, Harris is missing “in action” and Pelosi is in fear the “squad” will call for vacating the chair and a new election of a Speaker, and the choice of the “squad” is the former bartender from N.Y.. 2022 is going to be a landslide for Trump, and company, from top to local elections, then the REAL SUBVERSIVES, will see Justice…… LOL

  2. There is very little of these bills that is any value to the people of America . 6% of a reconstruction bill is not worth the paper it is printed on and the more members of Congress who realize it the better. Especially if they wish to keep their jobs. 2 billion $$$$ for electric cars for the government? The batteries for these cars come from China! A huge amount of money for a bias study? A park in Pelosi’s district, millions of our dollars …..pork for Pelosi. Work on real infrastructure problems, the grid, roads and bridges, airports, but not pipe dreams.

  3. Chingus BOOZER Piglosi has been done . Her LIBERAL labias went sour YEARS ago !!! Old Wench .

  4. It’s really hard to convince the true blue blooded Democratic voters their party is as CROOKED as they come. They have long years records of lying to the people, broken promises, etc.

  5. There have been many articles written that Pelosi is done yet she is still there! Hopefully this one will prove to be true!
