Nancy Pelosi Government Shutdown Gambit Shows Where her Interests Lie

According to the House Historian, she broke the 1909 record for the longest continuous speech. Republicans expressed delight that eyes were on the polarizing Pelosi, but her marathon speech served to energize activists while highlighting that House Republicans will not commit to a vote.

Delaney, who said Democrats had zero appetite for another government shutdown like the three-day saga last month, said the objective of Pelosi's floor speech was to point out "that Paul Ryan hasn't done the right thing, which is to say that we should have a debate on immigration".

"This stunt ... had nothing to do with protecting vulnerable members who have to take a hard vote", said one moderate lawmaker who asked not to be named.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turned towards a higher-power during her eight-hour long speech defending DACA Wednesday, saying she should have brought her "rosary blessed by the Pope" to help Democrats pass legislation in support of almost one million 'Dreamers'.

House Democrats would nearly certainly be blamed for a government shutdown, though they will say in turn that it is Republicans' fault because they are in the majority.

While conceding "many Democratic priorities" were addressed but since the bill "does nothing to advance bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers" she and the Democrats would not support it and risk a shutdown - which she had claimed would not happen.

The House minority leader was speaking on behalf of undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, known as "Dreamers", who she wants protected as part of a budget deal being agreed this week.

But to get to 218 Republicans, he had to play ball with the Freedom Caucus members, who were able to secure a handful of promises in exchange for votes. "(Ironically, Lamb has called on Pelosi to step down as speaker, citing the need for new leadership.) Likewise, Pelosi's stand on the floor-eagerly pushed out by the Democrats" social-media teams-quickly became fodder for the right-wing narrative.

Kelly stoked fresh backlash this week when he suggested that some immigrants were "too lazy to get off their asses" and apply for legal protection. Former House Speaker John Boehner spoke about cap and trade for an hour in 2009.

Pelosi read heart-rending testimonies from Dreamers who had written their representatives about their lives.

House Democrats left a caucus meeting just five hours before a government funding deadline Thursday acting like they have the unity needed to block the budget deal, but are they bluffing?

Republicans and her Democratic critics likely see Pelosi's speech as another opportunity to tie Democrats to a San Francisco socialite.

That bill went to the Senate, but the House might have to vote again if the Senate makes any changes. When Trump suspended the program in September, he gave Congress six months to come up with a replacement.

"I will not vote for it".

"We have a moral responsibility to act now", she said.

When she concluded her remarks, fellow Democrats present in the chamber applauded and cheered as she took her seat.
