REPORT: Nancy Pelosi grapples with her own ‘Tea Party’ as liberal wing flexes muscle
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to present a united Democratic Party on Friday as lawmakers closed out a Washington-area retreat, despite suggestions that she is grappling with her own version of the “Tea Party” that roiled the Republican Party establishment during the Obama years.
Pelosi told reporters after the Democratic Caucus’ policy retreat in Virginia that it was a “very substantive, unifying, energizing” conference.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This was an ‘alleluia,’ a cause for celebration for what it means in the lives of the American people,” she said.
But since reclaiming the gavel in January, the California Democrat has been forced to spend much of her time putting out fires from her party’s left flank as it pushes policies such as reparations for black Americans, ‘Medicare-for-all’ and the Green New Deal. She is currently facing another revolt against a bipartisan budget measure to increase spending for the Pentagon and domestic agencies, with critics on the left objecting to the increases for the military.
Amid a string of such confrontations, Melissa DeRosa, New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide, reportedly told a crowd on Thursday that a new Tea Party is forming on the left.
We saw this play out in the Tea Party, and I feel like at the time the Democratic Party sort of stood on the other side and said, ‘They’re destroying themselves. How do they not see what they are doing? This is crazy! But fine, they can destroy themselves; it’s to our betterment,'” DeRosa said, according to Crain’s. “And I think a version of that is happening right now on the Democratic side.”
