Pure joy? Seeing Ms. Pelosi rendered "irrelevant"

There are those that are important and those that are irrelevant, and, in terms of the budget, it is delightful to see the minority leader of the House of Representatives in the irrelevant category:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is showing no enthusiasm for the new proposal from Republicans to avoid a government shutdown, putting her at odds with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.).

Pelosi said in a statement that the GOP’s plan for a two-week spending bill cuts funding for critical programs.

“Republicans want to cut an additional $4 billion, which includes stripping support for some pressing educational challenges without redirecting these critical resources to meet the educational needs of our children,” Pelosi said in a statement. “This is not a good place to start.”

Well heck, then get the votes together to stop it. What’s that? Don’t have them?

Oh.

Well, thanks for stopping by.

  • Wonder how she is adapting to the grounding of “Air Nancy” ?

  • get the votes together

    Was this an attempt at irony ?   I mean, she (along with Harry and Barack) was supposed to lead the House to a budget and appropriations bills some 5 months ago.
    Nancy is an example of “EPIC FAIL.”

    • Heh, that was the first thought that came to mind.  Nancy and the rest of the Fun Bunch had a heck of a time getting votes together when they ran the whole show.  Back then, Republicans were ‘obstructionists‘ and “the party of ‘no.’“  Now, leaving town and hiding in order to avoid voting on legislation is ‘democracy.’  How long before the GOP decides that the filibuster has outlived its usefulness?

  • To quote The Rock:

    (To nancy Pelosi)  “IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!”

  • It’s interesting a Moody’s Analytics study is being quoted to suggest the U.S. House Republican plan to cut $61 billion in borrowing and spending this year would destroy 700,000 jobs over two years. And yet the same Moody’s study, authored by Mark Zandi, one of the architects of President Obama’s 2009 “stimulus,” says the Democrats will have to cut $400 billion a year if the economy is ever to stabilize. So, it seems, the Republicans aren’t doing nearly enough. They should be cutting $400 billion in spending and let the private sector reorganize in a reality-based economy.

  • HowEVER did the Republic survive in 2000, when the Department of Education budget was drastically lower than these cuts, even accounting for inflation?
    It’s almost like I shouldn’t believe anyone whining about how we have to just always spend more and more For The Children every year or else we’re doomed.
    Do these savages imagine that nobody can remember that spending has only been increasing for ages, and yet outcomes haven’t drastically improved?

  • Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat.  Thirty years ago everybody knew if only Israel would recognize a Palestinian state, we would have peace in the Middle East.  Ten years ago everybody knew that all Climate Change was due to man made CO2.  Three years ago everybody knew that America would be post racial if only we had a Black President, and a year ago everybody knew that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats would control the House for a generation.
    Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.

  • I’m surprised she found the time for such “governance”.  She’s been busy assuring her tribute was properly lush.
