(PatriotWise.com)- Far-left House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has done a complete U-turn on her push for the $3.5 trillion spending bill, suggesting over the weekend that it is “self evident” that she won’t be able to pass the unprecedented proposed package.
Speaking to the Sunday talk shows, Pelosi repeatedly said that the final proposal will be less than the $3.5 trillion currently on the table, which will be used to pay for a plethora of far-left social spending projects.
When asked if there would be a reduction in the package, she responded, “that seems self evident.”
She then went on to say that she has some “birdbath, privileged, kinds of things.” Whatever that means.
It comes as hard-left Congressional Democrats push for the $1.2 trillion “bipartisan” infrastructure deal to be tied to the $3.5 trillion plan, in an effort to force Republicans to get behind the larger spending package.
A deal’s a deal. We don’t pass the infrastructure bill without passing the Build Back Better Act, investing in child care, climate action, paid leave, housing, health care, education, and a roadmap to citizenship.
Let’s get this done and deliver for the people.

Extreme left-winger Rep. Pramila Jayapal said that they would not pass the infrastructure bill without passing a larger spending bill, too – but she also suggested that the total sum might be less than currently proposed.
Democrats are still stuck on passing their unprecedented spending package. West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, a Democrat, refused to work with the Biden administration and has committed to voting against the package on the basis that the United States should not be spending any more money until people have seen the effects of inflation decrease.
Manchin also said that current spending is fine to fund necessary programs to the end of 2021 and he sees no reason to even discuss the possibility of new spending measures.
If Pelosi and her colleagues are finally admitting defeat on the $3.5 trillion price tag, then they must be losing.
