House GOP leader calls out Nancy Pelosi: ‘her power is more important than anything else’

Tensions between Republicans and Democrats in the House of Representatives has rapidly increased as the two parties attempt to strike a viable compromise on whatever the next COVID-19 relief bill will contain.

According to Fox News, those tensions were put on display recently as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for prioritizing her powerful position as the head of the lower chamber over legislative items, saying “her power is more important than anything else” in a recent statement. 

“Pelosi is fine with House Democrats skipping work if the votes are about legislation, but in January she will demand every Democrat show up—in person—to vote for her for Speaker,” McCarthy said. “Her message is clear: her power is more important than anything else.”

The 80-year-old Speaker is presumably less confident about her chances of being elected one last time as one of the most powerful people on Capitol Hill, as Democrats suffered through a veritable bloodbath in the 2020 election, losing a number of blue seats to Republicans.

When the final results of the 2020 election finally shake out, Democrats will likely have 222 seats in the lower chamber, while Republicans will likely have 213. That’s the slimmest majority in decades, according to NPR.

That could spell trouble for Pelosi and the Democrat party, as there are a number of moderate Democrats who have expressed some level of concern over the past month that Pelosi has lost control of the party to the aggressively progressive members of the House, which some claim made their elections much more difficult than they should have been.

Adding to that is the fact that in 2018, according to Ballotpedia, a staggering 15 Democratic House lawmakers didn’t vote for Pelosi in 2018, though she managed to narrowly win the Speaker position anyway. But in 2018, Democrats had many more members than they will in the new session of Congress coming up.

Only time will tell if Pelosi manages to muster the support needed in what will likely be her toughest race to date for the Speakership, but with any luck, enough Democrats will break rank and install someone more capable of holding the position.

That would be nice, Glenda, but I think the swamp will resist all attempts at voting her out.

Guess we will just have to wait and see if this part of congress is really on the side of the American people or is really nothing more than paid activist for the SWAMP. I believe it is nothing more than the SWAMP and that they are paid very well under the table, and they pay no income tax on those illegal payments.

Well let’s start with the 126 House Reps. who broke their Oath to the Constitution and the America People. They broke Section 3 of The 14th Amendment by opposing the electoral democracy of 2020 election

Maybe, just maybe she won’t have the votes in January to hang onto her power. We can only hope !! She lost seats to Republicans in the 2020 debacle and maybe there will be some dems who would rather keep the job they were elected to do than support her power grab. She needs to be gone but jst stepping down off her throne would be good for starters.

Yes ,she needs to be discharged from her position or step down . This woman has been nothing but toxic for our nations for all parties involved. There where never any government shutdowns prior to her being in office
like there has been with her in that position .
I truly believe we get her out office and someone who actually cares for the country and people we start seeing parties work together

Nancy Pelosi is not a nice person she has been making herself rich on the backs of the American people , while pushing Americans into poverty it is a very severe bad thing she partook in the the big sham costing Americans millions of dollars , & the Americans who she did not respect will not respect her . Blocking Pandemic relief over 7 over will not gain her respect or votes especially being a dictator . when people did me wrong .

Be careful what you wish for. There are several people in Congress I am glad are still there. They are the only ones standing between Pelosi and the left wing radicals. If all we have are new inexperienced senators and representatives that would that would not be good.

It is bad enough that we are looking at an idiot who tells more lies than truths and a street walker running this country it would be just another slap in the face to truth and honesty to have a drunk in charge of the house. You would think the thief of an election would be enough to satisfy a party that is built on corruption that they would at least put a sober person in charge of the house.

She is destroying herself. We will soon be free of her. If she is an acholic she will be dead soon enough. How about sending her a case of her favorite brand. That should do the trick.

Folks I have said it for years TERM LIMITS and then we can get rid of some of the SNAKES. They have gotten in there and now they think they can do whatever they want. Three four year terms are plenty. Then they have to sit out for next eight years before running again.

Crazy Nancy Pelosi cares nothing about anyone else except
herself. She thinks she is a queen. She needs to go and should
have been gone a long time ago. I hate seeing her on tv and
just turn the channel when she arrives. God help us!

porterv (@guest_1088587)

Damn! I read the lead-in on my internet. It read “Nancy Pelosi gets rocked.” I thought that the people in California had wised up and were throwing rocks at her. What a disappointment when it was about a vote for Speaker. Maybe the congress will literally stone her. That would be sweet.

McCarthy is correct. Pelosi wants all the power and control

Patty (@guest_1088689)

Come on moderate Democrats! Vote her OUT! Mr.McCarthy, speak to every demonrat in congress, convince them to not vote for her, didn’t fifteen or so refuse to vote for her last time? Get more on board. She shot her fellow Democrats in the back with her power plays and some lost seats. That should be incentive enough to vote her out, or suffer the same consequences in 2022.

Donna (@guest_1088722)

Pelosi needs to go. She doesn’t care about the people, only herself. This is really sad. People are losing their businesses, people are trying to hang on the best they can and now there isn’t any help coming yet because Pelosi is playing her political
games. Enough is enough!
