Rift Between Schumer and Pelosi Over Border Bill -- Wash Post

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her colleagues in a private meeting Thursday that she thought she had a deal this week with her longtime ally, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer: She would ensure passage of a more liberal border funding bill in the House, and he would back her up by persuading Democratic senators to fight for it.

Instead, Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, she was blindsided. Nearly all Senate Democrats voted for a Republican-backed bill that kneecapped the House and marked the most embarrassing defeat for Pelosi in the six months since Democrats took over the chamber.

“Schumer destroyed all our leverage on Wednesday by not being able to hold his people,” said a senior House Democratic aide.

Schumer (D-N.Y.), meanwhile, believed Pelosi failed to deliver on a deal of her own. After House moderates revolted Thursday, Democrats had to discard a plan to send the bill back to the Senate before an end-of-month deadline.

Kamala reminds me of Obama. They both enjoy the moment they're in, they

don’t seem to stress easily, and they’re both very, very smart and logical.

Switching back to "undecided".

Can candidates see timer when speaking ?

Not a judgement call, but why didn't Biden go to the Homestead detention shelter

and why isn’t he doing spin room?
