Pelosi Likes Spending Bill, Won't Vote For It

New budget barrier: Pelosi opposes pact if no 'Dreamer' help Nancy Pelosi has been telling DREAMer stories for 7 hours. And she's still talking

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made a record-long speech speech against the House spending bill Wednesday, February 7, 208.

Pelosi's decision to take the floor followed a statement earlier in the day by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), announcing a two-year budget deal that increases military spending at the behest of President Trump, at a cost of $160 billion and provides approximately $128 billion in non-defense discretionary spending.

The marathon address included many stories from Pelosi (D-Calif.), including one in which she said her 6-year-old grandson once wished that he was Hispanic on his birthday. On Tuesday, Ryan said, "We're not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn't support".

"This morning, we took a measure of our Caucus because the package does nothing to advance bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers in the House. Without a commitment from Speaker Ryan comparable to the commitment from Leader McConnell, this package does not have my support".

However, it would not resolve the plight of immigrant "Dreamers" who face deportation after being brought to the US illegally as children. "And then hopefully tomorrow she will validate that trust by stopping us from voting for it". "Perhaps I should bring my rosary, blessed by the Pope", Ms. Pelosi said.

Mr. Crowley, chair of the House Democratic Caucus, said he's not formally lobbying his caucus against the bill, but he is "having conversations" with them about why he feels this way.

Stock markets plunge, Dow and S&P 500 in 'correction'
Yields then backed off their multi-year highs, giving the Dow a 560-point bounce on Tuesday and relative stability on Wednesday. The market's turmoil began last Friday and has continued this week as investors anxious about early signs of inflation.


Unlike in the Senate, where there is a tradition of unlimited debate, speeches in the House are normally limited to a certain number of minutes. The source said there is a lot in the deal that many Democrats support, including the increase in domestic programs.

But many Senate Democrats immediately viewed the move as a mistake, and the Friday night shutdown ended by Monday afternoon, affecting just one workday for most federal employees.

But other Democrats said their party in the House may simply not have the leverage to force a DACA solution on conservative Republicans controlling that chamber.

"Just from the reporting that we're hearing, many of those (priorities) have been addressed", he said. Senate Democrats joined them in January, blocking a funding measure and forcing a government shutdown.

Cicilline said he believed it would be an individual choice, and California's Rep. Linda Sánchez, a member of Democratic leadership, told CNN she wasn't sure yet if the caucus will whip.

It's clear that Senate Democrats have no appetite for another government shutdown.
