New Jersey Democrat Livid Over Infrastructure Delay by Pelosi

The fallout continues for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her delay tactics on the bipartisan infrastructure deal.

The pushback is not only coming from Senate Republicans that supported the bill.

Now, moderates in the House are going ballistic, openly railing against Pelosi.

Gottheimer Speaks Out

Pelosi has completely dismissed the much-needed win for moderate Democrats in the House by delaying this bill.

Rep. John Gottheimer (D-N.J.) is one of those Democrats that needed a win badly, but the delay tactics by Pelosi have and will continue to hurt him.

If he cannot deliver this bill, he is very much in danger of being unseated in 2022.

With the bill now delayed through the end of October, he could no longer stay silent.

Gottheimer stated, “It’s deeply regrettable that Speaker Pelosi 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 on or before September 27.”

He also pointed to a press release that Pelosi had sent out that read, “I am committing to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill by September 27.  I do so with a commitment to rally House Democratic support for its passage.”

The problem is that Pelosi and Joe Biden have completely caved to a very small minority in the House simply because they have big profiles.

Gottheimer, on this, stated, “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.

“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.”

If Pelosi fails to deliver this bill by the end of October, the fallout will be significant.

Of course, everything now hinges on the two Senate Democrats holding on infrastructure.

If Senators Manchin (D-W.V.) and Sinema (D-AZ) cave, even for a smaller number, both bills are more than likely going to pass in the House unless the moderates vote “No” out of spite, but I doubt that will happen.

  1. These 2 bills the 1.5 trillion infrastructure and the3.5 trillion infrastructure both should be thrown out , too much garbage and pork projects that line peoples political pockets.

  2. If Biden and “others” (in office) would take care of and PAY THEIR SHARE our Country would be in better financial shape! They are the “silent thieves” of Senate and House!

    1. I agree that’s why they stay in politics for a lifetime !!
      Really need term limits but they will never go for it. Why would they – they have it made!$$$

    2. AMEN!! HIT THE NAIL ON THE HEAD WITH THAT STATEMENT!!! UNITED WE STAND!!!! IN GOD WE TRUST !!!! OUR NATION UNDER GOD!!!! AMEN!!!! AMEN!!!!!! AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Nope PELOSI is in this for herself and not the American people … she doesn’t care who she hurts .. it’s all about power greed selfishness and not getting her way … this why we need new blood in all the houses to much power for to long only gets you greed and not concerned for
    what they where elected to do …. TERM LIMITS MUST BE A LAW IN ALL HOUSES

    1. I would care less if I picked up the morning paper and read that N^a^n^c^y P^e^l^o^s^i had a good heart attack or stroke, or got run over by a drunk driver…

  4. Pelosi don’t care for anything or anybody, just having power and greed of the tax dollar.needs illegals and blacks voting democrat for she can stay in power and launder tax dollars back to herself and her followers.

  5. They are allowing the swamp to control the country. It is time for them all to go! Pelosi and Biden only care about their pockets! I bet Biden never pays his back taxes. Yet if it was President Trump they would be all over him, news and everything. Pelosi was told to impeach Biden but she will Not! I just pray people remember things next time they vote!

  6. I spent a lot of time writing a comment and didn’t get posted. Probably doesn’t conform with their narrative.

  7. All of them need to go! They cheated, plain and simple! God has a plan but everyone must believe in God! Most of them would rather you abort than to have a beautiful baby! God help the American people! Maybe they don’t understand why these Congress members are holding off on the vote, until they pay their share instead of stealing from the American people all should be gone!!!?

  8. What is wrong with the Republicans in Congress? Why is Biden not being impeached? Trump went through two or three impeachments when he had done nothing wrong. Biden has committed many impeachable offenses. If O’Connell is the problem, then he needs to step down. The republican party is not helping Americans when they let allow a corrupt and incompetent man to remain in the White House. Get him out! He needs to be gone! He is ruining America and must be impeached!!!

    1. The House and Senate are controlled by Democrats. They won’t let Democrats get impeached until the House and Senate are controlled by Republicans. Hope 2022 we see a red wave. Until then don’t holed your breathe for Biden to get impeached any time soon!

    2. Pelosi would have to bring impeachment to floor. Senate does not vote to impeach they decide whether the president should be removed from office after being impeached by house.
