BOMBSHELL REPORT: House Speaker Pelosi Goes Off On Ocasio-Cortez As She Is Being Interviewed For New Book

CNN

It was reported recently that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore into New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez again for her far-left policies and antics on social media.

During an interview for a new book, “This Will Not Pass,” which will be released in May, Pelosi slammed AOC for nearly costing Democrats their majority in the House.

Punchbowl News reported:

Pelosi privately blames progressives for nearly costing Democrats the House and said AOC and Jayapal were fighting to be the “queen bee” of the left. “In a few strictly confidential conversations she pointed a finger leftward. Pelosi told one senior lawmaker that Democrats had alienated Asian and Hispanic immigrants with loose talk of socialism. In some of the same communities, the Italian Catholic speaker said, Democrats had not been careful enough about the way they spoke about abortion among new Americans who were devout people of faith.”

Business Insider reported:

In the fall of 2021, congressional Democrats tried to pass both components of President Joe Biden’s economic agenda in a bipartisan infrastructure bill focusing on roads, bridges, green energy, and transportation, and a much pricier economic spending package including childcare, social programs, and climate spending that known as the Build Back Better agenda that Senate Democrats would pass along party lines. 

But moving both measures at the same time proved to be an immense challenge, with progressives withholding their support for the infrastructure package in protest of what they saw as a lack of commitment to Build Back Better from centrists. 

Pelosi, who famously only brings bills to the floor when she knows she has the votes to pass them, had to cancel two planned votes for the infrastructure bill on September 30 and again on October 29. 

During the infrastructure vote, Pelosi was angry “and in private she vented about the progressive blockade that had forced her to cancel the infrastructure vote. … She told another House Democrat that Pramila Jayapal and Ocasio-Cortez were vying to be the ‘queen bee’ of the left, but that their reward might be serving in the House minority after the next election.”

Last month, Pelosi took another shot at AOC during an interview that she gave for a new biography by USA Today Washington bureau chief Susan Page.

“Pelosi unloads on the Squad, at one point adopting a child-like voice when discussing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and offers the Squad this blunt advice: ‘You’re not a one-person show. This is the Congress of the United States,’” it was reported.
