House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is losing her grip on the House, and it has Republicans rejoicing while the Democrats are humiliated and scrambling.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats had high hopes in early 2021 after she secured another term as speaker of the House along with a very narrow majority in the Senate and President Biden in the White House, but she has seen her power slip through the fingers of her once iron-clad fist,” reported Fox News.
“Political infighting between moderates and progressives compounded with nearly two dozen House Democrats announcing in 2021 they weren’t running for reelection have hurt her image ahead of the 2022 midterm elections next November,” according to Fox News.
“Members of the ‘Squad,’ the far-left wing of the House Democrats, and the moderate wing have gone through tense negotiations over the last several months. After the Senate passed the infrastructure bill with an overwhelming bipartisan vote during the summer, many were optimistic there would be a simple path to passage in the House,” reports Fox News.
“This was not the case. Progressives demanded that the bill be held up until the Senate passed a social spending reconciliation that met their demands. Moderates countered that the infrastructure bill should be quickly sent to President Biden’s desk, which led to months of animosity between the two factions, as progressives fumed that the moderates wouldn’t act in good faith once the infrastructure bill became law,” according to Fox News.
Now that 2022 has arrived, Pelosi finds herself grasping for miracles with a large amount of moderate and progressive seats up for grabs in her House.
