If Nancy Pelosi is upset at House Speaker Paul Ryan’s alleged abuse of power, maybe the Democrats should start winning congressional elections. But what did CBS run as a headline? It referred to Pelosi’s remark of a ‘power grab’ by Ryan:
House Speaker Paul Ryan is looking to pass legislation that would fine lawmakers for taking photos or videos from the House floor — his response to an overnight Democratic gun control “sit-in” last summer.
But Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi is pushing back, accusing the GOP of going for a “power grab.”
“While the American people worry for the financial security of their families, Republicans are opening the new Congress by turning their backs on the outside calls for help with an inside power grab in the House Rules,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues on Wednesday, according to Politico.
