2020 was a disaster for Nancy Pelosi.
But Pelosi had yet to hit rock bottom.
And now Nancy Pelosi heard 3 words that sent her world crumbling before her eyes.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is preparing for a Biden presidency by telling members of Congress not to join the Biden administration because the Democrats have such a slim majority that representatives joining a new administration could threaten the Democrats’majority.
“Nancy is telling House members, ‘Now is not the time to leave,’” a Democratic Party official told the New York Post.
The Republicans picked up twelve seats in the House, with five seats still undecided. The New York Times currently projects that the Democrats will only have a 10-person majority.
This would be the smallest majority in decades.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said on Fox News that Republicans could “run the floor” even though Pelosi will likely keep her role as Speaker of the House.
“We’ll have leadership races next week, and you’ll hear that she’ll win the leadership race,” McCarthy said of Pelosi. “But that does not make her speaker. You have to have 218 votes on the floor. Last Congress, 15 Democrats voted against her. Ten of those Democrats are coming back to Congress. If 10 Democrats vote against her, she will not be speaker.”
McCarthy said that the infighting between the radicals and the moderates could give Republicans the chance to control Congress.
“So you know what could happen? [Pelosi] could lose as speaker,” he said. “But if she wins as speaker you have AOC and the progressive socialists actually grow. They are fighting among themselves, tweeting at one another, pictures staring at one another, saying it’s a dumpster fire, screaming on their conference calls.”
“I believe at the end of the day the Republicans will run the floor because it’ll be our ideas that are stronger,” McCarthy concluded. “The American public have rejected defunding the police, dismantling America. We believe we can rebuild and restore the American way.”
Yet Pelosi hasn’t yet accepted the changes that having such a small majority will cause and said that she won’t make any compromises.
Pelosi was asked, “How does the smaller majority, how does that affect your legislative approach? Are you going to have to compromise more? Are there bills that you’re –?”
Pelosi interrupted and said “No, not at all. We have a president of the United States. Remember, we’ve got to have the opportunity to have bills signed into law. I’m very proud of our caucus because we’re beautifully diverse. As I always say, it is a — our diversity is our strength, our unity is our power.”
