Let’s face it: Nancy Pelosi has never been one to a.) understand what it is the American people actually deem important and b.) know when to fold her cards.
Despite the her party’s many defeats this week, the House Speaker claimed she will not change course and will barrel forward with Joe Biden’s “Build Back Better” framework that was largely repudiated by American voters.
Not only will Nancy proceed with the spending package, but it’s been reported she added two social spending initiatives removed from the bill to appease moderates.
“The people have spoken,” Pelosi said of Democratic former Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s loss.
Yet she refuses to regroup, restrategize, and actually provide the American people, with whom she represents, with a legislative package that actually provides clear improvements to the economy.
“The people have spoken,” Pelosi says of the Virginia results.

Democrats have billed the Build Back Better Act, a $1.75 trillion social spending package, as “historic” and “transformational,” yet they’ve failed on numerous occasions to agree.
If a piece of legislation was so “historic,” why would a large majority of your party disapprove of it?
Socialists and moderates have not agreed on key provisions addressing paid leave, renewable energy and the tax code. As a result, left-wing representatives have refused to vote for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which passed the Senate in June in a bipartisan 69-30 vote.
Youngkin’s win was not the only blow to the Democrats, however. Another gubernatorial race has Democrats sweating bullets, wondering where it all went wrong.
The race between Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy and Republican businessman Jack Ciatarelli remains too close to call, although Murphy has slowly gained ground and late reporting is calling his victory. However, Democrats expected a blow out in what is historically a Deep Blue state. Again, they were dead wrong.
Meanwhile, the RNC and GOP are sending lawyers to New Jersey as the race remains highly contested.
Elsewhere, Minneapolis voters rejected a referendum question that would have abolished their city’s police department, and Buffalo socialist India Walton lost to incumbent Mayor Byron Brown, who conducted a write-in campaign after losing to Walton in a primary.
Once again, the electoral evidence indicates that America is not as progressive as socialist members believe it is.
In response, socialist lawmakers are blaming moderates.
The Democrat infighting is like music to the ears of every American who seeks to punish the party that kept them in solitary confinement for over a year, destroyed their livelihoods, and continues to restrict civil liberties all in the name of “safety” and “empathy.”
