Rank-and-File Democrats Revolting Against Pelosi over Coronavirus Aid

Rank-and-file Democrats have increasingly become frustrated with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) brinksmanship-style negotiations with congressional Republicans and President Donald Trump.

Politico reported that Pelosi has continued to pursue her hardline approach in negotiations with Republicans, demanding a coronavirus bill around $2.2 trillion.

The report arises as many coronavirus programs created by the CARES Act have languished over Pelosi’s reluctance to compromise with Trump and congressional Republicans.

However, her reluctance to find a middle ground with moderate Democrats has infuriated many of her most vulnerable members.

Senate Democrats rejected a targeted coronavirus aid bill sponsored by Senate Republicans last week.

During a call with the moderate New Democrat Coalition and Democrat leadership on Tuesday, Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) asked Pelosi why the House would not stay in session until they pass a deal. In response, the Speaker said to “take a poll of your colleagues.”

Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), who represents a district Trump won in 2016 by more than six percent, said during the call, “My conviction is to actually do my goddamn job and come up with a solution for the American people. We have to bring something to the floor.”

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the second highest-ranking Democrat, has pushed for Pelosi to change her strategy but said he would not “undermine” Pelosi.

Rep. Max Rose (D-NY), another swing district Democrat, said, “Every member of the leadership team, Democrats and Republicans, have messed up. Everyone is accountable. Get something done. Get something done!”

In response to concerned Democrats, Pelosi said, “A skinny deal is not a deal. It is a Republican bill.”

“We can wait around forever for the proposal we think is the perfect proposal, and that obviously won’t be helpful to anybody. Time is of the essence here,” Rep. Jason Crow, a freshman swing district Democrat, said.

Rep. Kendra Horn (D-OK), a freshman swing district Democrat, said, “What truly ‘falls short’ is doing nothing. It is flatly unacceptable that congressional leadership is not at the table when businesses are closing, Americans are out of work, and families need help. The political games have to stop.”

She can't get past him canceling her flight early in his presidency.
Yep, I remember that time. She was going to Afghanistan to PARTYYYYYYY. She got to the airbase with her drinking crew and found the flight cancelled. I heard tell she was jumping up and down like an organ grinder monkey.

Then there was the time she was stood up by Trump at the white house.

Organized crime cannot exist without public corruption, and for decades the Mafia operated as the fourth branch of government in many cities. United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi often recounts learning about politics as a little girl during the 1950s when her father Thomas D'Alesandro ran the Democratic machine in Baltimore, Maryland. D'Alesandro was a Congressman for five terms from 1938 to 1947, and Baltimore mayor for three terms from 1947 to 1959. The Honorable D'Alesandro allegedly was a 'constant companion' of notorious mobster Benjamin 'Benny Trotta' Magliano and other underworld figures according to the FBI file on the old-school politician. The mob ties and other corruption allegations against Mayor D'Alesandro curiously have remained absent in the accounts by Speaker Pelosi about her political family.

What I hope this means is that the dems might actually lose the House and a seat or two in the Senate. That way, whether Trump wins or loses the Dems lose even bigger.
I think that its a real possibility. A lot of people are going to vote straight party. This election could be a blowout, the equivalent of 1932 when FDR won. In that election the republicans lost a 101 seats and 12 seats in the senate, giving the democrats a clean sweep of both houses and the white house.

I predict this time its going to happen in the opposite direction.

I’m voting straight. Hell with ‘em. Will we get some crap in there? Most assuredly. But can’t be much worse than what we have already.

It is far far far past the time to kick this beotch to the curb. Our congress is acting like a bunch of spoiled prepubescent brats in a junior high social club. They need a good old fashion arse whipping and fired out a cannon into the Potomac River!! About the only good use for them would be as fish food.

Ya know, it is REFRESHING to hear a CongressCritter of ANY stripe say:
Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), who represents a district Trump won in 2016 by more than six percent, said during the call, “My conviction is to actually do my goddamn job and come up with a solution for the American people. We have to bring something to the floor.”
I'd like to hear more of this kind of commitment.

Can't stand her! Her voice is like nails on a chalkboard to me! Matters not, who the President is as long as the Congress doesn't agree with him! Look like a bunch of children! Why can't we get 'term limits?' Because Congress HAS to vote for them, and that will NEVER happen! Pisses me off! The congress has TOO much power! Washington, Jackson rest of our founding fathers messed that branch up terribly!

Nancy's hate for Trump is causing her not to listen to other democrats in the House. They know if she keeps up with her ranting and raving and playing politics for her cause, the possibility of them losing and them being replaced will upset their applecart and their gravy train in Washington and the dem's don't want that. Nancy's alcoholic dementia is getting worse and worse and hopefully it will help with the dem's losing.
