Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is gearing up for battle with her Republican colleagues in 2018; reportedly telling her fellow liberal legislators to “vote no” on every GOP proposal heading into the pivotal midterm elections this fall.
The House Minority Leader sent a scathing letter to her left-wing lawmakers late Sunday evening, instructing them to “show the country how the Trump budget is not a statement of our values.”
“Tomorrow, President Trump will release his 2019 budget and perhaps his infrastructure plan. This occasion presents us with a pivotal moment in the governance of our country,” writes Pelosi.
“This week, we must pivot aggressively to show the country how the Trump budget is not a statement of our values, and how the Trump infrastructure plan harms taxpayers and consumers,” she adds. “And we must continue showing the public how unfair the GOP Tax Scam is to the middle class and halt the GOP assault on the Affordable Care Act.”
Nancy’s comments come just hours before the President is set to reveal more details of his highly-anticipated infrastructure bill. The new proposal calls for Congress to allocate roughly $1.3 trillion to help rebuild the nation’s antiquated roads, airports, bridges, and more.
