Pelosi Plans Fizzle After Jayapal ‘No’ Sinks Thursday Infrastructure Vote

Update (1717ET): House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s misplaced confidence that she could pull off a Thursday vote on the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill went up in flames, after Congressional Progressive Caucus leader Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) made clear that House leadership would not have enough votes from her group to pass it.

“Both bills pass together — and when the full legislative text of the popular Build Back Better Act is ready and agreed to, we’ll be thrilled to pass the President’s entire agena [sic],” Jayapal tweeted Thursday afternoon.
