The chair of the Republican National Committee, Ronna McDaniel, had quite a bit to say about Speak of the House, Nancy Pelosi during an interview with Breitbart News Daily. She said she highly doubts that Pelosi can pass the trillions of dollars of infrastructure spending that she’s trying to pass.
Just last week 10 Republicans in the Senate voted to pass a bill worth over 1.2 trillion dollars in a so-called bipartisan victory for President Joe Biden and his administration.
Many conservatives in the Senate like Josh Hawley, a republican from Missouri, hammered the bills as one of the first steps in Biden’s massive agenda for the left. Hawley and many other conservatives said the bill has so many provisions that move critical race theory forwards, changes to climate change procedures and increased tax on cryptos, that it will never pass. It would also add a whopping $256 billion to the national deficient and it was furthermore discovered that this bill wouldn’t gran any significant amount of economic growth.
Mcdaniel says the $1.2 ‘infrastructure’ bill doesn’t include enough actual infrastructure in the trillion-dollar legislation. She isn’t sure how Republicans were convinced to vote for the bill that even Democrats Sinema and Manchin refused to vote for.
McDaniel says to have no fear though, this will likely be stopped at the house, if it even gets there.
McDaniel says that Pelosi probably won’t be able to pass the trillion-dollar bills through the house because it’s very unlikely that she can get support from all the progressives because it’s not extreme enough, and that moderate democrats are likely to laugh in her face at the incredible price tage of such a bill.
It’s just not progressive enough for the extremists and the moderate Dems are trying to play it safe with midterms looming over their heads.
A New Jersey Democrat, Josh Gottheimer, pleaded with Pelosi to make the $1.2 trillion bill independent of the $3.5 trillion bill, but had no luck. Pelosi says that Biden is in favor of a rule in the house that will make it so there can be joint consideration of the $1.2 Trillion infrastructure bill and the $3.5 trillion budget resolution.
The vote is expected to happen next week.
