Jayapal on Rachel just now: CPC will vote no on bipartisan bill if Senate doesn't pass BBB first

She implied that Pelosi’s scheduled vote this Thursday on the bipartisan bill is a “soft” date, and the vote won’t happen if the senate hasn’t passed the Build Back Better reconciliation bill first.

Also, Jayapal told WaPo last night that CPC “no” votes on the bipartisan bill (before reconciliation passes) grew from from 40 no votes on Friday, to 60 no votes yesterday. Those will all be “yes” votes once the reconciliation bill passes the senate.

Jayapal and her caucus aren’t playing. This could be the most intense legislative week in Congress in a long time.


The centrist saboteurs are floating the talking point that only the “framework” for the reconciliation bill needs to pass the house and senate (what Jayapal has called “pre-conferencing”) before Thursday in order to vote on the bipartisan bill in the house, however, Jayapal made clear tonight on Rachel that passing the framework alone is not enough to gain the support of the CPC on Thursday- they won’t support the bipartisan bill until the reconciliation bill has passed.

The AZ Fraudit didn't prove a damn thing

I sure wish folks would stop saying “the AZ audit by the Cyber Ninjas proves Biden won by even more votes!”

That kind of framing gives legitimacy to a corrupt process that was anything but legitimate.

Better framing:

“The AZ Fraudit failed to prove Trump’s Big Lie that the election was stolen.”

From CNN: Clyburn says there's a "possibility" that 9/27 vote on bipartisan bill will be delayed


Not to say I told you so, but I did.

Pelosi will not bring the bipartisan bill up for a vote unless and until the senate passes the reconciliation bill, in whatever form it may end up.

List of companies with Texas headquarters:


Of particular note:
Airlines- American Airlines, Southwest
Kimberley-Clark, maker of paper products, including women’s hygiene products (don’t switch to Koch owned Georgia-Pacific products)

Lots of restaurant chains, computer companies, and of course, oil companies.

Let your dollars be your voice.
