The Democrat House has now been, once again, forced to delay a planned vote on Infrastructure.

As The Hill reports:

House Democratic leaders late Thursday postponed a vote yet again on the bipartisan infrastructure bill amid threats from progressives to tank it as leverage for a separate, larger package to expand social safety net programs.

After a long day of meetings between Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and the warring centrist and progressive factions of the caucus, as well as with White House staff, Democrats opted to delay a vote planned for Thursday rather than allow an embarrassing public failure on the House floor.

A notice from House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer‘s (D-Md.) office issued shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday confirmed that there would be no further votes for the night. The House is expected to reconvene Friday morning as the negotiations continue.

Some progressives want a larger package to expand social safety net programs? That’s insane. And bipartisan? It’s not, it’s just the BS the progressives like to use when they want something.
