DON’T WORRY BOUT ME: In recent days, multiple House Republicans have claimed to me that House Democrats have willingly passed or endorsed bills that they know will wipe out moderates out next election cycle. They claim House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) knows they will lose the majority so she is trying to push through more progressive policies ahead of losing their nexus of power, even at the expense of her own frontline members.
They point to the big spending on Covid relief and the nearly $4 proposal of government spending for infrastructure and American Families Plan as well as the push by Democrats to grant D.C. Statehood. And they also cite other issues that won’t make it anywhere in the House, like how progressives are looking to expand the Supreme Court (while a group of House Democrats have rolled out a proposal on this issue, Pelosi says she isn’t bringing it to the floor).
An aide for a frontline House Democrat poured cold water on this GOP claim: “Instead of bogging us down with discussions about defunding the police or abolishing ICE, the House has stayed focused on ensuring that our legislative record this year will boast a long list of delivered relief and investment for each Frontline district. No amount of scaremongering about beef bans or abolishing the police from Republicans will change that,” the aide told me.
As for the price tags: “We’re looking at paying for it by raising taxes only on the top percent of earners – hardly something that most middle class Americans have a problem with.”
SPEAKING OF FRONTLINE: The GOP is going after Rep. Ron Kind (D-Wis.) over reports that a rental property of his was used for a seedy massage parlor.
PAY UP: House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) and House Democratic Chairman Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) sent a letter to appropriators yesterday calling for an increase in Member’s Representational Allowance (MRA) funds so that they can increase staff pay, including a “20% increase in funding for MRAs, for committees, and for leadership offices so we can increase staff pay.” Roll Call’s Katherine Tully-McManus with the story: https://bit.Ly/3vtLvru
