Pelosi Manipulating The Shutdown – Here’s What She’s Getting Out Of It
Image credit: huffpost

Update: President has conceded an end to the government shutdown. Announces he will meet with bipartisan lawmakers to discuss options for border wall.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her fellow Democrats continue to refuse any proposal to end the government shutdown. This resulted in Pelosi putting the House yet again in recess, while 800,000 Americans struggle to meet their daily needs.

However, Republican congressman Lee Zeldin is calling her out for the move and may have stumbled onto a big factor in the fight.

“Unbelievable. @SpeakerPelosi just canceled session for Friday & is putting the House in recess from tomorrow morning until Monday evening. Stop leaving DC! Sit down, negotiate & compromise. Get in a room & let’s do our jobs. Stop sending Members home so much,” Zeldin challenged on Twitter.

Zeldin’s words have pointed out a potentially disturbing trend surrounding the shutdown, Democrats are essentially getting numerous paid vacations. 

Every time Pelosi calls for a recess, members of the House are given license to just give up on negotiations and take a breather. Without having gotten anything done to begin with. 

Could Pelosi be furthering the shutdown just to spend more time on the beach?

  1. NO WORK —-NO PAY!!!!! WHEN TAXPAYERS STOP PAYING TAXES….THEN WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO GET ALL THE MONEY ,YOU ARE A CROOKED PERSON & DON’T KNOW HOW YOU CAN LIVE WITH YOURSELF! ALL OF YOU HIPPOCRITES ARE GOING TO END UP BROKE, SICKLY, & YOUR ILLEGAL’S ARE GOING TO TURN ON YOU & YOU, SCHUMER & THE REST OF YOUR GROUP WILL SUFFER & IT WILL BE WORST THEN LIVING IN HELL!!!

  2. Pelosi and Schumer both need to be run out of the house and told never to return. My hope in the long run is that many democrats are going to just disappear.

    1. PIGLOSI MUST RESIGN SHE IS A TRAITOR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ,ALL MILITARY PLANES /FLIGHTS FOR CONGRESS SHOULD BE CANCELED INDEFINITELY ND THE CONGRESSIONAL PAY SHOULD BE STOPPED UNTIL THE WALL IS FUNDED AND THE LIBERALS DO THEIR JOBS

  3. Congress has created so many subsidiary entities populated by unelected bureaucrats that there is currently nothing for Congress to do. Give them all PERMANENT vacations (unpaid, of course) and let’s get on with the business of government.

  4. She like her cohosts are standing by any and all illegals, they have bluntly repeated that they will not stand by or for the legal people of this nation. But wants total open door to every illegal, every criminal, every gang members to cross the boarders and will stand by as these dog murder innocent American men, women, children and babies and the demo’s do not want then arrested, tried or convicted for any crimes they commit.
    I say that the complete democratic party and those who stand with be accountable as an assures to every crime and murder that are committed by any illegal, the demo’s should be arrested, and removed form all offices as a willing partner in every crime. They are all responsible that are in DC.

  5. What is her strategy? What is she trying to accomplish? Does she honest to God believe that people across this entire nation believe that she is completely in control of her senses? Her statements earlier showed her to be as doddering as usual if not worse!!! She was completely unable to deliver her speech. She had papers flying all over the place, was totally lost, slurred words, abandoned the whole speech with several bouts of embarrassed giggling. This woman needs to be put out to pasture. But apparently God has plans for her, yet to be revealed. It’s always interesting to watch her fumble through a speech. I could almost hear the entire house putting their heads down with a big collective sigh in hopes she would just stop talking.

  6. No,we gave the Democrats their last offer,screw all their obstruction and trying to make a Great President Bad. Never trust the Democrats to help,just take from the Tax-payers.Build that wall Tall and Beautiful.’

  7. Pelosi does not care about this country. All she cares about is her hatred of President Trump. She loves the power. Did you see the look on her face when she got that gavel in her hand.

  8. Does pelosi REALLY think that people across this entire nation think she is a good leader? She has ZERO platform other than trying to get rid of PRESIDENT TRUMP. She is in total control of the dems in house and senate??? That tells me that she has some mighty nasty dirt on all of them in order to blackmail them into standing strong with her. Or else she has informed them that she will make sure they get NOTHING for their states that they want. Whatever it is there are a handful that are breaking ranks with her. She WILL severely punish them. She already has. In her earlier speech she slurred words, had papers flying everywhere, repeated herself, went into fits of embarrassed – or drunken? – giggles. This woman needs to be removed I think – but then I realize that God put her there, just like He put PRESIDENT TRUMP in office. HE has the Master Plan. We don’t. Let’s just sit back & watch to see TRUMP play his Chess game against her Monopoly game. She outweighs him in sheer hatred & meanness, but he is far superior in INTELLIGENCE.

  9. When will pelosi stop? Surely she isn’t so demented that she honestly believes this entire nation is behind her at this date. The dem platform consists of just one thing – destroy PRESIDENT TRUMP. That is the ONLY goal they have. The border wall is just the biggest obstacle right now that she is using to control the situation. She is scared to death of what PRESIDENT TRUMP will say in the SOTU Address that’s why she keeps refusing him to give it. Her power play is going to have adverse effects. TRUMP is still playing Chess while she’s playing Monopoly.
    BUT, God put her there for a reason just like He made TRUMP to be the POTUS. He has The Master Plan. We don’t. Let’s just wait & see how this battle turns out.

  10. Pelosi. and the Democratic party have become completely irresponsible and unable to perform the job they were elected to do, which is to serve and protect the rights of America and it’s citizens. Instead, because President Trump wants to take away their self serving power and the millions they’re able to make at the taxpayer’s expense and give control of government back to the people, their panic of that happening and hatred for our President has caused them to become maniacal. They can’t think of anything else than destroy Trump and everyone associated with him. Forget America and it’s citizens; they’re fighting to keep the rich lifetime careers they have enjoyed for so long.

  11. Had enough? I, and many others have to. Let’s take control of the political games and end this corrupted Congress now.
    Roll Call on All Capitals February 23 redress of grievances on All Capitals. It’s time America. Join your brothers and sisters in our fight for freedom. Find us on FB search as our efforts are being monitored and adding members has been shut down. Let’s drain this stinkn swamp

  12. Pelosi, Obama, Clinton’s. Schumer. Sorso have ruined America! Trump will never be able to make America great again because Trump isn’t part of the establishment. Too many crooked dems and republicans! I’m neither a Republican nor Democrat but whoever can serve and make our country great again! Governor of New York by passing the 9 month abortion rights, you will stand in front of God one day!
    If I were Trump and Pence. I would resign and leave the USA- Sad ! Sad! How can Pelosi have control over the president?

  13. Maybe we need a very basic tool to ensure Congress gets paid for working: PUNCH THE CLOCK LIKE MANY WORKING AMERICANS. That’s right, Nancy Pelosi, you should be punching a clock in the building you “work” in and no, you can’t phone in or dial in you punching a time clock; you have to sign in to enter the building, then punch a clock. When your day is done, you punch the clock again. Don’t worry about having to work after you punch out for the day as just being in the building versus being in Hawaii or jet-setting in Europe is a step in the right direction. Nancy: get back to work and DO YOU JOB!!!

  14. Y is PRESIDENT Trump letting the speaker of the house running things in W.D.C.and how can she b a good speaker of the house when she does even show up for talks to get thing done after all she allway suck up to Mr.Obama …Are PRESIDENT Donald Trump needs too do what Obama did pull your Pen out of your pocket and start signing in too law what needs to been done..After all she didn’t stop Obama from doing just that.she backed him up.and the people know the wall wasn’t started by PRESIDENT Trump. My the way she and chuck was allway for the wall until PRESIDENT Trump promised the PEOPLE he will get the wall finish bottom line .. Just sign it into law president trump and b done with the Democrats bull shit.sin.(lets get it done)Mr Harris

  15. She needs to be impeached from her position and job and then given a drug test and alcohol test to see what she is addicted to. She needs to not be paid one cent . Until this shutdown is over with. And no back pay for anyone in office. The Democrats are at fault here. End this please. Your fellow voters won’t be voting for you this next time. She needs to go home for good.

  16. Pelosi and her Democratic Party can have a recess and be paid while some of the Federal workers suffer the shutdown! And then they will say that they (Pelosi and the Democrats) are fighting for them? NONSENSE!

  17. Time to get limits on House and Senate jobs.
    She can’t believe she is a leader and failing to debate the issues. All they want is impeach our President who has done more for the middle class than any President since Reagan.
    Looks like the book of Revelation in the Bible is coming true with her at the helm.

  18. If they do leave town take all perks away until they come to agreement. No pay until settled. If other government workers worked without pay so should they. No its and or buts. NO PAY,NO PLAY!!!! SO TIRED OF THIS DEMOCRATIC PARTY AND ITS GAMES.
