Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi should be out of politics for her age alone. Term limits need to be a severe topic soon. Otherwise, we’re going to repeat this same cycle of lifelong politicians, and this country isn’t going to be able to reach progress. It’s going to hold the country back with out-of-date ideas and policies.
Pelosi framed the Build Back Better bill as a Thanksgiving gift to the American people. To clarify that position, it won’t. Americans need stability and hope coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic. While parts of the bill will give that, there’s looming inflation and a rise in taxes that will not help anyone out. The federal government can’t open the country back-up and jack up prices and taxes on Americans. It’s not fair, and it’s not going to garner support for the Democrat party.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill passed without the Build Back Better bill because Pelosi was pushed to vote on it. Many Democrats voted against it because they wanted to include it before voting, but it didn’t happen.
Progressives Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez voted no on the BIF. Their feelings are hurt after they don’t get what they want. At least AOC didn’t cry on the floor of the House like she did when Israel’s Iron Dome was founded a couple of months ago.
Pelosi said, “I do believe there are a large number of members of the progressive caucus who will vote for the bill. I have the speaker’s secret whip count.”
Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) isn’t going to vote for BBB as it’s written, so it doesn’t matter if the vote is done today or next year. He’s outlined why he won’t vote for it, and it’s good that he’s resisting.
When Pelosi tried to explain what was happening, she didn’t hit the mark at all. Her babbling made it sound like a drunk friend trying to have a debate with another drunk friend:

Like a drunk, Pelosi won’t remember what she was talking about, and nobody else does either.
Pelosi said, “Birdbath or privilege scrub. Those are two different things.” Why? Nobody knows. It wouldn’t do it justice to type out the script, and I wouldn’t say I like it for anyone who has to transcribe the disaster of a press conference.
She also said, “There’s no wrong answer. It is what it is.” Yes, Pelosi, there is a wrong answer. The one you just gave. That was a horrible answer.
Someone needs to come and get Pelosi and sober her up. It’s getting out of control, and she’s not making sense.
