Pelosi Accused of Threatening To 'Hold Hostage' Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was officially accused of trying to hold the bipartisan infrastructure bill hostage. It was GOP Sen. John Thune who called her out, saying Pelosi might be holding it hostage if reconciliation bill wasn't passed as well.

Thune had been criticizing Democrats for stuffing the infrastructure bill with porky pet projects, and suggested back in April that it should ONLY focus on infrastructure and nothing else.

His webpage said:

“It’s not too late for Democrats and the president to sit down at the table with Republicans and develop a substantial, bipartisan proposal that would address our country’s infrastructure needs without spending taxpayer dollars on wasteful or extraneous proposals.”

Washington — 

U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) today discussed Democrats’ ongoing attempts to broaden the definition of “infrastructure” to include their progressive political agenda. Thune expressed his desire to work with Democrats on infrastructure legislation, but emphasized that the process should be bipartisan and focus on actual investments in infrastructure.
