Today Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats to “embrace the suck” today during a closed door meeting.
The New York Post reported:
It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of the budget deal.
“Embrace the suck,” House minority leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats Thursday morning, a source told Politico.
“We need to get this off the table so we can go forward,” she added. It’s a way of telling her colleagues the budget deal negotiated with Republicans is the best they can get.
Democrats are fuming that the bipartisan budget deal doesn’t extend unemployment benefits for more than a million Americans.
One of Pelosi’s top lieutenants, Rep. Chris Van Hollen, the top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, said Thursday it was “too early to say” whether most Democrats would back the deal, in an appearance on the Bill Press show.
Good luck with that, Democrats.
