Amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell might have revealed too much from behind the scenes of the recent Dims in Disarray internal discussion of how to get the infrastructure bill(s) passed:
And here’s the operative quote:
“I wish the moderates in the House success,” McConnell said on Fox News Tuesday morning. “They want to split the infrastructure bill away from this massive $3.5-to-5 trillion reckless tax and spending bill, and deal with the two separately.”
And of course now the House moderates are on the losing end of that attempt, the Republicans true to their scorpion-on-the-back-of-the-frog nature stung the leader of the moderates:
In other words, they got out-played and badly. As Pelosi said a couple of weeks ago when this all started, “Amateur Hour.”
And that leads us to the obvious conclusion(s): 1) Never cross Nancy Pelosi, and B) the whole party needs to get in line and pass all of the Biden priority bills.
