Liberals defy Pelosi, say they'll block infrastructure bill
By Mike Lillis and Scott Wong - 10/28/21 02:12 PM EDT

Liberals on Thursday vowed to block a popular infrastructure bill — a central piece of President Biden’s domestic agenda — just hours after the president urged their support and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) announced plans to bring the bipartisan proposal to the House floor for a vote the same day.

The move by dozens of members in the Congressional Progressive Caucus was hardly a departure of tactics: Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), who chairs the group, has said for months that liberals would oppose the infrastructure bill until there was a concrete agreement with Democratic centrists on a larger social spending package.

Still, their decision to hold that line constitutes a remarkable escalation of the high-stakes power struggle between Pelosi and the progressive members of her own caucus, who said they simply can’t back the infrastructure bill without greater assurances that a larger social spending bill will contain their priorities.

In an exceptional interaction Thursday, Pelosi walked into a strategic meeting of the Progressive Caucus, only to leave a short time later without speaking to the group.

They should take a vote and let the chips fall where they will. The DCP disciples don't have the guts to defy their queen. (ROTFLMAO)

When it comes to Pelosi embracing the "squad" and giving them plush committee assignments, I am reminded of what Bluto told Flounder after they wrecked his brothers Lincoln after a road trip.

   The sheer agony of awaiting the upcoming Impeachment Season is overwhelming.

Republicans Call For Impeachment Of Whoever Is Telling Biden What To Do

September 7th, 2021 - BabylonBee.com


WASHINGTON, D.C.—Several prominent Republicans came forward this week to call for the impeachment or resignation of whoever on earth is telling Biden what to do every day.

"I think it's clear at this point that the person controlling Biden —and telling him what to do and say every moment—is completely incompetent," said Republican Representative Bob McCobb. "We're not really sure who that is, but they need to be impeached immediately. They suck."

Americans increasingly agree with this sentiment, as recent polls revealed record-low approval ratings for whoever that person is who is pulling the strings of the barely sentient President Biden every day.

Reports are that Rep Payapal kicked her out of the caucus meeting.  Told her to leave.

Yep.  Pelosi.  They Flat out showed her the door. All she could say when asked to leave was "I was leaving anyway."

   They'll put a San Fransican spin on it and say 'she shat on the floor before she left'.
