Former Vice President Joe Biden praised House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her reelection, and hailed her as “one of the most effective and accomplished legislators in our nation’s history.”
He said in a statement on Sunday, “Jill and I extend our warmest congratulations to Speaker Pelosi on her well-deserved reelection today as Speaker of the House of Representatives.” He added that Pelosi is “a trailblazing leader—and one of the most effective and accomplished legislators in our nation’s history.”
Clearly his dementia is worse than we thought!
Pelosi was first elected to Congress in 1987 and has a long track record as a legislator, with her oldest key national vote, as logged by tracking site Votesmart.org, showing that in 1991 she sponsored the Conditional Extension of Most-Favored-Nation Trade Status to China act. The bill, called H.R.2212 (pdf), sought to impose stricter conditions on renewing China’s preferential treatment as a so-called “most favored nation,” which was a status that granted China favorable access to the American market. It called for tougher treatment of China unless it improved its behavior in the area of human rights, forced labor, intellectual property theft, unfair trade practices against the United States, and weapons proliferation. The bill was ultimately vetoed by George H.W. Bush, who in his veto letter (pdf) argued for a policy of engagement with China rather than a get tough approach.
According to a Govtrack.us legislator report card, Pelosi was the primary sponsor of seven bills that were ultimately enacted, which ranged from major initiatives like the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 and the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, to lesser bills like the San Francisco Old Mint Commemorative Coin Act and the Winter Run Chinook Salmon Captive Broodstock Act of 1993.
Biden continued on to say that he looks forward with working with Pelosi, adding, “With Speaker Pelosi’s leadership, we will come together to defeat the ongoing pandemic, take on the existential threat of climate change, instill greater equity and justice in our society, and build our economy back better than before.”
Pelosi, in remarks from the House floor on Sunday outlined some of the Democrats’ policy priorities during the 117th Congress, with a heavy focus on social justice.
“We must pursue justice: economic justice, justice in health, racial justice, environmental, and climate justice. The list goes on,” she said.
Pelosi is many, many things. However, a good lawmaker is not one of them... The American people deserve SO much better than the likes of her.
