Pelosi Tables Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

Just as we predicted, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will hold the bipartisan infrastructure package hostage.

This weekend, while appearing on “This Week” on ABC, Pelosi stated that the bipartisan package would remain on her desk until she gets the reconciliation package from the Senate.

It has once again proven that the negotiations for a bipartisan deal were nothing more than a sham all along.

What’s the Point?

Last week, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) tried to rush the bipartisan package through for a procedural vote before the bill was finished.

With more than $1 trillion on the line, McConnell blocked the bill from going through, as he should.

Schumer was doing this so he could pass reconciliation this week to ram through the much larger package that the Dems wanted.

So, now Pelosi is playing games, openly admitting that she will not even put the smaller package on the floor until she sees the $3.5 trillion partisan package passed by the Senate.

It is truly amazing that Pelosi tried to put this on Republicans, stating, “I hope they pass the bipartisan legislation. Infrastructure has always been bipartisan for all the years I have been in Congress.”

If infrastructure is bipartisan, why is she holding a bill hostage to get a partisan package passed?

The fact that Republicans are doing this and are still working on the bipartisan deal is baffling to me.

I do not see the point of passing a bipartisan deal if there is a reconciliation package that will follow with the Democrat wish list spending.

If Democrats want to go this route, why not let them own the entire package?

Do not get me wrong because we badly need infrastructure spending. That is NOT the problem here.

The problem is that the majority of the spending in the total package is not going to roads and bridges but to Democrat pet projects, such as amnesty for illegal immigrants.

I do not care how Democrats frame that… it is NOT infrastructure spending.
