Nancy Pelosi Determined To Seal The Bipartisan Bill This Week
The bill of infrastructure has faced a lot of problems since its inception. The interim rift between the progressive and the moderate group of Democrats has hindered its progress. The bill of 3.5tn aids important fields such as child care, healthcare, climate crisis, etc. The moderates have requested to pass the bill of infrastructure first. However, the group of progressives has asked all the bills to be passed together.
A determined Pelosi said that she will be passing the bill positively by this week. She further explained that she will not floor a bill that lacks votes. The speaker stressed the fact that they need to maintain a good relationship with the government. She said that the US President had certain visions. Pelosi promised to respect them.
The Democrats do not enjoy a huge majority. However, if they manage to merge with Congress, they will have an upper hand. This will help the Democrats thwart the staunch opposition of the Republicans. Pramila Jaypal is a renowned progressive leader. She hinted at the fact that Nancy Pelosi does not enjoy the comfort of the majority. It will thus be interesting to see how the week unfolds.
