House Delays Infrastructure Vote

Thursday night, the House delayed voting on the massive bipartisan infrastructure bill in an attempt for Pelosi to save herself from the embarrassing result. After more progressive Democrats announced their plans to torpedo the bill in hopes of passing an even bigger one later it seems Speaker Pelosi was unable to change their minds.

The Hill reports:

After a long day of meetings between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the warring centrist and progressive factions of the caucus, as well as with White House staff, Democrats opted to delay a vote planned for Thursday rather than allow an embarrassing public failure on the House floor.

A notice from House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer‘s (D-Md.) office issued shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday confirmed that there would be no further votes for the night. The House is expected to reconvene Friday morning as the negotiations continue.

Pelosi, leaving the Capitol just after midnight on Friday, suggested the infrastructure vote will take place later in the day.

“There’ll be a vote today,” she said. When pressed if the vote is definitive, however, she left some wiggle room: “We’ll see.”

Moderate Democrats Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema also said they did not plan to support the bipartisan bill. Senator Manchin said he is in “good faith negotiations” regarding the bill but doubted a vote would happen Friday.

The vote needs to be delayed until reasonable people rewrite it. Unfortunately, the people who could write a sensible bill are republicans and the present makeup of Congress is made of democrat super spenders.
Worst thought, a bill written by AOC and her financial death squad.

Another massive bill, littered with all the nonsense the Democrats could think of. Is this bill really FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?? AND, HAS ANYONE IN CONGRESS ACTUALLY READ THE ENTIRE BILL, ALL 2,700 PAGES?? And, listen to the remarks made by Nancy Pelosi — to her it is all about WINNING!!!

Kind of sad watching Slo Joe and San Fran Nan shuffle around in the Capitol hallways. While Biden sounded testy, Pelosi is definitely looking worse for the wear. The Botox and make-up can only do so much masking. The bags under her eyes and dried out hair show the strain she is under.. The radical left has simply decided now is the time to press their agenda. They be no compromise. Conservative need to remain resolute and enjoy the impending implosion of the Biden-Harris regime. Their ‘Perfect Storm’ is about to hit.

Hope you are right. Piglosi needs to go. Between her and Biden this country is in big trouble.

I am 100% against this terrible bill. The federal government is already out of money, and wanting to borrow on some distant future generation to pay for day to day expenses already. I would like to know where all the gas tax money goes. I would like to know where all the vehicle taxes go. I would like to know where all the taxes collected on phones, cell phones, cable, satellite, and internet go. Seems to me, all the existing infrastructure was built without all these new taxes. They were built better too. If the bill was worth its weight there would not be such a problem with passing it It is obviously packed full of pet projects, and things that have nothing to do with infrastructure. All the bickering is about how much these politicians get to put in their pockets, and pay off their donors. I would like to see a total end to any new spending, or taxation till these irresponsible crooks can live within their means like every American household, and business.

I am sick of Manchin’s fence-sitting power plays and then going Pelosi’s way after so many delays. LET PELOSI SINK! She is worried about her power play when she should be concerned about the effect on the electorate of those disastrous moves. SHE NEEDS TO GO!!!

The vote is delayed until Nancy pelosi can have her goons find dirt on the family members of the people not voting the way Nancy wants them to.

The democrats have every intent to destory the US economy.
