The media portrays Nancy Pelosi as a master political leader.
But that is far from the truth.
And Nancy Pelosi made one mistake that Joe Biden is going to live to regret.
Five RINO Senators – led by Never Trump Godfather Mitt Romney – agreed to the framework of a deal to spend 1.2 trillion dollars on a so-called “infrastructure” bill.
In reality, Joe Biden and Chuck Schumer planned to use that bill as “bipartisan cover” so Democrat Senators Krysten Sinema and Joe Manchin can vote for a six trillion-dollar bill that turns America into a cradle-to-grave socialist states, imposes the Marxist Green New Deal, and levies the largest tax increase in American history on citizens.
Pelosi made it official that Romney and the other Republicans going along with this deal got played fools by announcing that unless Democrats pass their massive tax-and-spend reconciliation bill there would be no bipartisan infrastructure bill.
“It’s as I said. There won’t be an infrastructure bill unless we have a reconciliation bill, plain and simple. … There ain’t going to be an infrastructure bill unless we have the reconciliation bill passed by the United States Senate,” Pelosi stated.
“Let me be really clear on this: we will not take up a bill in the House until the Senate passes the bipartisan bill and a reconciliation bill,” Pelosi declared. “If there is no bipartisan bill, then we’ll just go when the Senate passes a reconciliation bill.”
At least one Republican involved in the negotiation – South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham – announced he was out and he is now opposing the infrastructure two-step.
GOP Senate leaders Mitch McConnell and John Thune also poured cold water on this set up.
When Romney and the other Republicans announced they had caved in on the infrastructure bill Conservatives could not understand what was going on.
It was obvious to all that these negotiations were just a set up so Democrats could appease moderate Senators Manchin and Sinema so they would be on board with socialist welfare state and Green New Deal legislation.
This troubling deal from GOP RINOs comes after the Conservative grassroots just struck a major blow to the Democrats’ priority election takeover scheme. Now the RINOs in the Senate decided that was their signal to run up the white flag and cave on Democrats’ other top priorities.
