Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union, radical Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) said President Biden and moderate Democrats should worry about the support of a progressive caucus for the deal on the debt ceiling.
Jayapal said, “We’re all trying to wade through spin right now. That’s certainly what you heard from my good colleague on the other side of the aisle, is a lot of spin. But I think it will come down to what the legislative text is. At the end of the day, I think the American people have to understand we’re at the brink of default, we don’t have a deal yet, we don’t know how many Republican votes can be produced, and it’s all because Republicans said that they wanted to cut the deficit.”
Anchor Jake Tapper asked, “I know you hate it when I do this, but I’ll give you a yes or no question right now.”
Jayapal said, “I may or may not answer you.”
Tapper said, “That’s fair. But Democrats watching right now at the White House, your friend Hakeem Jeffries, others, do they still have to worry about the progressive caucus and whether or not your caucus will support –”
Jayapal said, “Yes.”
Tapper said, “Yes, they do.”
Jayapal said, “Yes, they have to worry.”
They should be worried. Americans are getting fed up with Democrat elites and their economy-busting policies.
