House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote a letter to the House of Democrats on Sunday, that the bill regarding infrastructure worth $1 trillion, will be voted on Thursday.
She sounded pretty confident during an interview with ABC News that she will pass the bill, “We’re going to pass the bill this week. I’m never bringing a bill to the floor that doesn’t have the votes,” Nancy Pelosi said.
Not only did Pelosi guarantee the passing of the bipartisan infrastructure bill in her Sunday letter, but she also put forward her stance on the $3.5 trillion social safety and climate change bill. She said she is going to push it ahead and the total amount of the bill will drop as well.
As per the Reuters report, Pelosi mentioned in her letter that, “Tomorrow, September 27, we will begin debate on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework on the Floor of the House and vote on it on Thursday, September 30, the day on which the surface transportation authorization expires,”
On return from Camp David, when the reporters asked about the President’s stance at the White House, over Pelosi’s agenda to pass the infrastructure bill on Thursday, he seemed a bit uncertain about it. He replied, “going to take the better part of this week.”
Leader of Congressional Progressive Caucus, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash, also put forward her views regarding Nancy Pelosi’s letter via a Twitter post, “We don’t pass the infrastructure bill without passing the Build Back Better Act, investing in child care, climate action, paid leave, housing, health care, education, and a roadmap to citizenship,” she posted. “Let’s get this done and deliver for the people.”
Continuing her point of view, Jayapal stated that whatever exclusions are made in the reconciliation package, “we need to hear what it is.”
While Pelosi is confident to pass the infrastructure bill on Thursday, she has still not given the date for the $3.5 trillion bill.
