Dems In Trouble As AOC Progressives Blackmail Pelosi On Spending Bill

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tried to reassure moderate members of her conference late Monday that they would not be required to pass a spending bill with a higher price tag than any legislation the Senate approves.

In a so-called “Dear Colleague” letter, Pelosi told her fellow Democrats that while she hoped the bill that comes to the floor will call for $3.5 trillion in spending, in accordance with the budget framework passed by the House last month, “[w]e must be prepared for adjustments”.

Pelosi has held off on bringing a $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill previously passed by the Senate up for a vote while congressional Democrats and the White House try to beat out the details of the larger proposal — which they hope to force through both chambers without Republican help through the parliamentary maneuver of reconciliation.
