Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just was found guilty. This extortion charge has rocked the corridors of power in Washington, DC — everyone is talking about what is going to happen to her next.
“It is just extortion, and, unfortunately, the victims are the American people,” said Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO) in an interview with Breitbart News. Buck hit Pelosi hard on demanding left-wing goodies as part of a second COVID-19 relief bill.
On top of that, the bill she has proposed is over $2 trillion — something we simply cannot afford. Instead of coming back to the table, Pelosi would rather blackmail the American people to get what she wants. This is failed leadership.
In fact, Buck said, “I think Speaker Pelosi would love to have the California pension system paid off and all kinds of other things.” But what does this have to do with relief aid for the pandemic? Nothing — unless you are a career politician like Pelosi.
She isn’t going to win this fight, however. President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans have called her bluff and are standing firm against her pork-barrel spending. There are even moderate Democrats who have had enough of her antics.
“Pelosi’s refusal to find a middle ground with the president has led to many rank-and-file Democrats revolting against the House leader,” reported Breitbart. It appears a reckoning for her is fast approaching — and members of her own party will be involved.
