Via TTN:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi knows that Republicans are prepared to hold out as long as it takes to see Biden’s agenda flop, and other Democrats know it too. According to a memo from Pelosi, multiple House members have already said they are prepared to make concessions to the GOP in order to squeak Biden’s massive spending bill through.

The Hill reports:

“In order to pass both the Build Back Better Act and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill on time, it is essential that difficult decisions must be made very soon,” Pelosi said in a brief “Dear Colleague” letter.

“Overwhelmingly, the guidance I am receiving from Members is to do fewer things well so that we can still have a transformative impact on families in the workplace and responsibly address the climate crisis: a Build Back Better agenda for jobs and the planet For The Children!” she said.

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) initially said he wouldn’t support a bill costing more than $1.5 trillion, more than half of what Democrats were originally attempting to pass. He later signaled that he would be open to around $1.9 trillion to $2.2 trillion.

Pelosi in Monday night’s letter also referenced an expected House vote late Tuesday on a short-term debt limit deal, saying, “We must lift the debt ceiling and hope that we can have a unanimous Democratic vote and perhaps a bipartisan vote to do so.”

Pelosi didn’t specify what could possibly be dropped from the bill to help it pass. What do you think should be there first to go?

Well I do not support anyof the bill period. It is full of unneeded spending and unwanted and inappropriate language setting up inappropriate actions. Many items target “needs” some state governments need to address, but due to inept governors and state legislators they can’t seem to get the job done.

Close scrutiny must be present Re: any clause Re: expanding federal power in state & local elections.
All other clauses pale in importance. There is a behind the scenes effort to wipe-out State & local
Rights…”the bell tolls for thee.”

#1 The Feds taking over any part of the states’ voting laws.
#2 The IRS snooping into bank accounts over $600 transactions.

Biden’s so called spending bill should never see the light of day! Neither should Biden for that matter! Biden was the worst possible choice that the Dems could have made but it would seem that there was no one else to take the role of Pres! It does seem somewhat shocking that Biden was the only person available for the Presidency! A more useful person obviously couldn’t be found!

Taking from the tax payer to put in the pockets of fake businesses (Solyndra) and making everything else too expensive for the poor and middle class worker!

Pelosi is by far the worst speaker we have ever had. She needs to be impeached. Don’t pass the bill until we know what’s in it! Period.

Both bills should be rejected. If Pelosi wants a bill she should build it from a bi-partisian committee originally -not from a socialist wish list. Also, NO money should be given to our enemies, i.e., Afganistan and taliban, Iran, ….

I would prefer. The whole thing be tossed into the toilet and flushed. The build back better is just a pill of Leftest crap. There is not a thing you can do about the weather. It is just a cycle that it goes through. We have been listening to the idiots since the 70’s. Changing engines to low compression and sucking more fuel to improve omissions. I have always wonder how the great brains of the world could come up with that a car engine that got 19 to 20 miles on a gallon of gas would put out more omissions; than, a car engine that got 8 to 10 miles per gallon of gas. Anyway, natural gas generator plants are more dependable than a freaking bunch of windmills that takes up a couple of 100 acres and you do not have a pile of blades to bury when they hit a bunch of birds or get chipped up by hail or sand storms or being frozen.

The entire bill should be dumped. It is nothing more than an attempt to indoctrinate are children into communist ideology from the time they first learn to talk.
