Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is in full collapse. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA) just publicly confirmed the rumors.
Gingrich said on New York WABC 770 AM radio that Pelosi is presiding over “a total collapse of the legislative process,” in which Democrat members are expected to vote in lockstep with her.
“They have a five-vote margin, and basically, they’re saying to their members, ‘You don’t have to read anything. You don’t have to know what’s in it,'” said Gingrich.
He also reported that Democrats are being told they “can’t offer any amendments,” proving that Pelosi wants to run a “machine-like House,” not one that is responsive to Americans.
This is going to hurt centrist Democrats during the 2022 midterms. They are essentially being forced to vote for extremely unpopular legislation, even though the GOP is poised to take over.
As Gingrich noted, Pelosi’s majority hangs by a thread — only five members, to be exact — and Republicans are expecting to retire Pelosi for good and elect a conservative Speaker of the House very soon.
