I remembered the same word. I’m afraid everyone here is just lost in the light.
That’s the right question, Judy, yes. Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer, from the House of Representatives Democrats, I asked him this question: Is the infrastructure up for a vote?
He told me recently 100 percent. Look, 100 percent, they will vote on the infrastructure bill tonight. Let’s look at the floor of the House right now. That’s the problem. They are still stuck in the middle of the last vote. This is a procedural vote. This is irrelevant. But the fact that they’ve been stuck on this vote for so long tells you they are still working out the mechanics of what lies ahead.
Judy, I think it will be late at night. But we’re expecting both of those votes, sort of a procedural vote on the Build Back Better Bill, but we’re expecting a major vote on the Infrastructure Bill tonight. Here’s what people need to know.
Pelosi is doing something I’ve never seen before. Looks like she’s rolling the dice here. It is not clear to those of us outside of her office that she has the votes to pass this infrastructure law tonight, because so many Democrats, including Pramila Jayapal, other progressive supporters, have stated that they do not want to vote for him if these bills are divided tonight.
So Pelosi will need Republican help today. It is not clear that she will be able to understand this. Even if Republicans and the private sector support the infrastructure bill, it is bipartisan, this is a political issue tonight and it is not clear if Pelosi will succeed or not.
