Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) just received terrible news. Democrats are completely stunned, but there is nothing they can do to stop it.
“I think the reality is if she can get her votes for speaker, which is still an open question, she is controlled by the far-left in AOC,” said Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) on Fox News, referring to Pelosi’s lost influence in the House.
Pelosi, who has been doing the bidding of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and “The Squad” members, “walked away again and again and again from negotiations” on COVID-19 relief and is cost her severely at the ballot box, noted Stefanik.
“She lost every single toss-up seat in the country,” Stefanik continued. The reality for Pelosi is now clear: she will have a razor-thin majority in the House and will either have to negotiate compromises or lose even more seats in 2022.
This is what happens when you listen to far-left radicals like AOC who have no interest in consensus-based politics — they only want to virtue-signal from on high with proposals that are dead on arrival. It is insanity and Pelosi is feeding it.
Even if Pelosi becomes Speaker again, it will be the last time. Some members of her own caucus — especially those in swing districts — have grown tired of her antics. She is politically ineffective and should retire immediately.
