Pelosi say Trump is Lawless

 

Pelosi says Trump belongs in Prison

 

YET

 

Pelosi Won't Impeach Him

 

Pelosi Gives Trump Everything He Wants - Including Now - 5 Billion to give to Private For Profit Concentration Camps Where Children Are Caged & Denied Soap & Tooth brushes

 

Pelosi is a Joke

 

Supposed To Have These Great Leadership and Negotiating Skills

 

Pelosi Can't Even Keep Democrats in Line - Never Mind Winning Anything Over Trump & McConnell or convincing House Republicans to Compromise

 

Trump & McConnell are running this Country DOING ANYTHING THEY WANT OR NOT and Pelosi was given the House Majority to do Something About it and she's IMPOTENT & INCOMPETENT

Mavolta is making excuses for Pelosi

 

Thats great - a handful of Moderate Dems will pick up a few Votes back home in exchange for allowing Trump to Continue to Abuse Children - seperate them from their Parents with No Process For Reuniting Them

 

The Bill - Pelosi Allowed to Pass in the House Today is not the Bill the Democrats Debated and Passed recently in the House - What was the purpose of that exercise - what was the purpose of Pelosi saying all week she would not allow the Senate Bill to pass without going to Conference and being negotiated - instead she just caved

 

Read the Sources I provided - 2 different ones - both present the facts

 

Pelosi CAVED TO TRUMP & McConnell

 

No ifs ands or buts about it - & Immmigrants at the Border are going to suffer for it

 

It does us no good if the only thing Pelosi cares about is avoiding controversey

 

Ryan could not Handle the Radical Tea Party and Pelosi cannot handle the Cowardly Moderates in the Party

 

Sometimes in fact most times Principle and Doing the Right Thing based on the FACTS should be more important than the Politics

 

If Pelosi gave in on this Immigration Bill but got something else Important that would be one thing

 

In this Case she just CAVED because she does not have Control of her Caucus

 

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was among the progressive Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday who immediately pushed back after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced a decision to vote on a border funding package approved by the Senate—controlled by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell—that includes none of the suggested provisions designed to end the separation of families and the abusive treatment of immigrant children.

 

"Under no circumstances should the House vote for a McConnell-only bill w/ no negotiation with Democrats," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted after the vote was announced"That's an abdication of power we should refuse to accept. They will keep hurting kids if we do."

 

Earlier this week, it was Ocasio-Cortez—along with Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.), and Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.)—who stood firmly against giving Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) any additional funding until the separation of families and the illegal detention of children were brought to an end.

Never mind that the House bill didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of ever getting a vote in the Senate. There were significant differences in the House and Senate bills, and time was running out. The Senate bill passed out of committee 30-1, and passed the floor vote 84-8, with strong bipartisan support. The Senate did their job and kept the bill clean. 

 

If anything, Pelosi ultimately caved to the moderate D's, most of whom live in border states, or states with ICE or CBP facilities. They were not about to go home without the emergency funding in place. Sometimes you take what you can get and live to fight another day.

 

I used to get really mad at Paul Ryan for refusing to take up bipartisan bills that got through the Senate (no small feat), because his far right caucus said no. The same goes for Pelosi, and her group on the left. If bills can be reconciled, fine. If not, take the vote. It's a democracy. Majority rules. The majority is usually somewhere in the middle. In this case, that's what happened.

One of the major disadvantages of a politician having a soul and a conscience is that they can pushed into losing a negotiation if the other side is willing to allow kids to sleep in filth and lice.

Pelosi Caves To Trump McConnell Abandons Children

Oh Sure - All I Hear On This Forum - Is What A Shrewd Negotiator & Poltician Pelosi is and how all her years of Experience are so Valuable Especially At This Point in Time

 

ANSWER ME THIS - THE HOUSE PASSED A BILL WITHIN THE LAST 7 DAYS THAT PUT GUARD RAILS ON HOW THE 4.5 BILLION THEY APPROVED FOR IMMIGRATION COULD BE SPENT AND HOW LONG AND UNDER WHAT CONDITIONS CHILDREN COULD BE HELD IN CAGES

 

THE SENATE PASSED BILL DOES NOT HAVE THOSE GUARD RAILS - TRUMP CAN SPEND THE MONEY ANY WAY HE WANTS AND HE CAN CONTINUE TO CAGE CHILDREN INDEFINETELY

 

PELOSI SAID ALL WEEK SHE WOULD NOT ACCEPT THE SENATE BILL IF IT DID NOT INCLUDE THE HOUSE APPROVED GUARD RAILS

 

TODAY SHE AGREED TO PASS THE SENATE VERSION

 

House Passes Senate Border Bill in Striking Defeat for Pelosi

 

Pelosi bows to McConnell on border aid bill
