Progressives Warn Against Pelosi’s Trims to Infrastructure Bill

We would appear to have the makings of an old-fashioned power struggle going on in the Democrat Party.

Knowing the full $3.5 trillion package would not get through the Senate as is, House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) conceded to cutting the bill down to a “mere” $2 trillion.

She was assuming everyone would be on board, but that is not the case.

You Have Been Warned

Last week, the warning signs were on the table when Rep. Jayapal (D-WA) hinted how she could be talked down off the $3.5 trillion ledge.

She stated that she would go less as long as they funded all the programs, just not for as long.

When she made the statement, I suspected she felt that once the funding was in place, it would be much easier to refund the programs as long as they were being deemed successful.

Pelosi, however, is looking to cut programs, and that is just not sitting well.

Jayapal stated, “We have been told that we can either adequately fund a small number of investments or legislate broadly, but only make a shallow, short-term impact.

“We would argue that this is a false choice.”

My take on that is the progressive Squad has no intention of supporting a smaller bill that cuts out the broader programs, which is a big problem for Pelosi.

Pelosi has only a razor-thin margin in the House right now, and if the entire Squad backs out, this legislation fails.

The kicker for Pelosi is that if progressives cannot get on the same page on this, the smaller bipartisan bill will also fail, having her walk away from the table with nothing.

This legislation is the only hope Democrats have of stopping this massive slide Joe Biden is seeing in the polls, so if Pelosi fails, she has doomed Biden to become a lame-duck after only two years in office.

    1. Frank, I would care less if I picked up the paper and read that N^a^n^c^y P^e^l^o^s^i was term limited permanently by a good stroke or heart attack, or a high speed collision with a drunk driver….same for the “squad” in congress…

  1. Stop the bleed of the American tax dollar..the left will use it to help them keep control of the country and launder it back to themselves.

  2. I agree with you all. Pelosi needs to be in jail for insider trading and her husband too. Biden needs to be in jail for tax invitation. Yet they worry that us little people are hiding something in our bank accounts from the IRS when all along it is them. The IRS should stay out of our accounts, none of their business! The IRS needs to take a deep look into their own pockets. Corruption starts at home!

  3. Has Swamp Queen Pelosi removed any of the funding for her special interests? Or are those projects in her district sacred cows that are protected from budget cuts? Or what about Planned Parenthood? Has she reduced or eliminated any funding to that organization? Probably not because about half of the funds given to PP are “returned to Democrats” in the form of campaign contributions. PP is not a legitimate 501,C3 organization and should not be a tax exempt status. It is a for profit organization. But Pelosi doesn’t care as long as she get the credit for the “fund raising effort” due to the donations from th

  4. The communist democrat pedophile cult club is hoping the demented finger rapist would be able to ram it through. (don’t forget Tarra Reade as dementia jo has and his finger raping since all paper work was destroyed by the corrupt democrat regime)

  5. Again any statement I post goes off to the nether world. Joe, Pelosi and the rest want to know about every transaction people make over $600.00 so they can enact a law taxing us on them, Like the milage tax, they want to tax people for every mile you drive, even though you already pay 18.3 cents Federal taxes on every Gal, oil, Taxes on your tires, the car itself, and any other accessories you buy. It’s all about taking more money from those who can least afford to loose more to the government.
