Pelosi Walks Out to Delay Vote

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is resorting to delay tactics to push back voting on key legislation.

Rather than push the vote forward on the bipartisan infrastructure bill, Pelosi reportedly walked out.

Moderates still hope that the bill will be introduced on Thursday, but even that now seems up in the air.

Nobody Budging

Pelosi has been adamant that she will not floor a vote if she thinks it will not pass.

Progressive Democrats continue to threaten the smaller infrastructure bill if they don’t have the reconciliation package on the floor.

The problem for Pelosi now is that specific stipulations in the smaller bill expire on Thursday, so that is the deadline, for all intents and purposes, to pass that bill as is.

If Pelosi continues to wait out Senators Manchin (D-W.V.) and Sinema (D-AZ) to break, she could miss out on passing both bills.

That, however, is what she seems like she is going to do, or at least wait until the very last possible second.

If and when Pelosi floors the smaller bill, she is unlikely to have the support of progressives, but the bill should still pass.

That particular bill still has significant support among Republicans.

However, once that bill goes through, she may lose the support of the reconciliation bill among more moderate Democrats.

Even today, however, Pelosi has stated that she must have “legislative language” in place before moving forward on the smaller bill.

I really don’t see that happening in the next 24 hours, so we will have to see if she stands firm or buckles.
