Nancy Pelosi Suffers Huge Blow As Three Moderate Dems Revolt Against Her Drug Pricing Plan

Published

on

Nancy Pelosi suffered a huge and quite embarrassing defeat today when three moderate Dem revolted and sunk Pelosi’s prized prescription drug plan.

The Dems legislation to lower drug prices, the one they have been campaigning on and the one Nancy holds dear to her heart, was just defeated in a House committee after three moderate Democrats voted against the Dem party.

Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Scott Peters (D-Calif.), and Kathleen Rice (D-N.Y.) voted against the Dems plan to allow the secretary of Health and Human Services to negotiate lower drug prices.

But it is more than just a blow to Pelosi’s ego – their drug scheme was a key way the Dems planned to pay for the $3.5 trillion spending boondoggle they are trying to ram through Congress.

With Joe Manchin saying he wants the bill paid for before he will greenlight it, if the Dems can’t resurrect this portion of the bill the whole thing may fall apart. Manchin does not like the price tag and he does not want to add to the deficit.

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone Jr. (D-N.J.) begged the 3 moderates to vote yes saying: “Vote to move forward today. Vote to continue the conversation.”

Pallone remained upbeat despite the loss saying the final bill will have some drug price reform in it.

“I know it is going to have drug pricing reform,” Pallone said but will it be enough to offset the concerns of Joe Manchin? Not a chance.

Henry Connelly, a spokesman for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), said:

“Polling consistently shows immense bipartisan support for Democrats’ drug price negotiation legislation, including overwhelming majorities of Republicans and independents who are fed up with Big Pharma charging Americans so much more than they charge for the same medicines overseas,” he said in a statement after the vote.

“Delivering lower drug costs is a top priority of the American people and will remain a cornerstone of the Build Back Better Act as work continues between the House, Senate and White House on the final bill.”

“Reps. Peters, Rice, and Schrader are prioritizing drug company profits over lower drug prices for the American people, particularly for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis,” said Patrick Gaspard, president of the left-leaning Center for American Progress.

 “To the contrary of what they contend, their opposition to the drugs proposal threatens the entirety of President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, which Democrats have campaigned on for years and that they previously voted for.”

Joe Manchin Checkmates Nancy Pelosi: “Chuck Schumer will not have my vote on $3.5 trillion and he knows that”

Published

on

Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), just ended Nancy Pelosi’s dream of passing Biden’s agenda quick and easy by saying he will not support the $3.5 trillion spending bill Pelosi promised some Dems she would get through the Congress.

Joe said of Chuck Schumer and Manchin’s critical 50th vote, “He will not have my vote on $3.5 trillion and Chuck knows that, and we’ve talked about this,” Manchin said on CNN.

He continued: “We’ve already put out $5.4 trillion and we’ve tried to help Americans in every way we possibly can and a lot of the help that we’ve put out there is still there and it’s going to run clear until next year, 2022, so what’s the urgency? 

“What’s the urgency that we have? It’s not the same urgency that we had with the American Rescue Plan. We got that out the door quickly. That was about $2 trillion.

“There’s no way we can get this done by the 27th if we do our job,” he said.

“There’s so much differences that we have here and so much, there’s so much apart from us to where we are as far as our I’m giving you different things, I’ve been talking, I’ve been working with people, I’m going to talk to people, that makes no sense at all.

“There are still 11 million jobs that aren’t filled right now. Eight million people are still unemployed. Something’s not matching up.

“Don’t you think we ought to hit the pause and find out? The vulnerability that we have right now, we don’t know what happened with this Covid, it’s awful coming back the way it is with a vengeance,” he said.

Manchin said on NBC:

“We don’t have the need to rush into this and get it done within one week because there’s some deadline we’re meeting or someone’s going to fall through the cracks.

“I want to make sure that children are getting taken care of, that people are basically having an opportunity to go back to work. 

“We have 11 million jobs that we haven’t filled, 8 million people still unemployed. 

“Something’s not matching up there.”

Bernie Sanders is not happy with Joe.He said:

“I don’t think it’s acceptable for the President, to the American people or to the overwhelming majority of the people in the Democratic caucus,” for Joe to block the bill.

Bernie continued: “Look, we worked with Sen. Manchin to pass the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which was enormously consequential and helpful to working class families in getting us out of the economic disaster that befell us as a result of Covid.

“I believe we’re going to all sit down and work together and come up with a $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill, which deals with the enormously unmet needs of working families.”

“I NEVER THOUGHT THE PURPOSE OF THE PROGRESS THAT WE MAKE IN LEGISLATION WAS BASICALLY HOLD ONE HOSTAGE OVER THE OTHER.”

Pelosi said protestors who plan to attend the September 18 rally at the Capitol are “coming back to praise the people who were out to kill”

Published

on

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned those who plan to attend a Sept. 18 rally outside the Capitol.

Pelosi accused those who plan to attend of trying to “praise the people who were out to kill” on January 6th during the Capitol Riot.

According to spokesperson Brianna Burch, the DC Police have an “increased presence around the city where demonstrations will be taking place.”

Per Business Insider:

Capitol Police are preparing security ahead of a right-wing protest in Washington, DC, on September 18, according to an internal memo obtained by CNN. Intelligence officials told the Associated Press members of far-right extremist groups like the Proud Boys and Oath Keepers are expected to attend the rally.

The rally, dubbed “Justice for J6,” aims to support the events of January 6 and demand “justice” for suspected rioters criminally charged in the insurrection. Support for the September event also increased following the unveiling of the identity of Capitol Police officer who shot Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt, CNN reported.
