House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Wednesday the House will not vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill until the Senate approves the more leftist reconciliation infrastructure bill.
The House leader said the House would “take up” the bill once they see the “budget parameters” of the budget bill.
Although Pelosi said she would hold a vote on the bipartisan bill after the more leftist reconciliation bill, Pelosi’s statement does not serve as a guarantee that they would vote on the bill.
She added, “Our caucus is very, very pleased with the bipartisan agreement.”
Pelosi emphasized they believed they could pass the bipartisan bill.
“We have seen bipartisanship in all of this, and that is what gives us hope that this can be done,” she said.
Swing district Democrats have contradicted Pelosi, voicing their concerns she should not hold the bipartisan bill hostage.
