Media Correctly Reports Nancy Pelosi's Speech Wasn't a Filibuster

Nancy Pelosi

That bill went to the Senate, but the House might have to vote again if the Senate makes any changes.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke on the House floor Wednesday for a record-breaking eight hours, vowing to speak - and stand - until Republicans concede protections for so-called Dreamers.

USA politician Nancy Pelosi spoke for a little more than eight hours in the House of Representatives to oppose the budget deal to lift spending caps and avert a government shutdown because the plan does not address immigration issues. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

"I'm confident we can get there", the speaker added. The California Democrat was demanding that Republicans agree to allow illegal aliens brought here as children to remain in the United States.

Ms Pelosi's speech came as senate leaders agreed a two-year budget deal which they hope will avoid another government shutdown.

We're not sure how she did it, but we'd suggest something a little more comfortable the next time she takes the floor.

Trump's comments contrasted with the progress made on Capitol Hill, where the House passed a short-term spending measure Tuesday night and Senate leaders were closing in on a larger, long-term pact after a midnight Thursday night deadline.

When Pelosi finished, around 50 Democrats responded with a standing ovation, high-fives, hugs and kisses.

The prospective longer-term budget agreement would give both the Pentagon and domestic agencies relief from a budget freeze that lawmakers say threatens military readiness and training as well as domestic priorities such as combating opioid abuse and repairing the troubled health care system for veterans.

As lawmakers announced a budget deal that would address numerous issues stymieing Washington - with the key exception of immigration - House Democrats on Wednesday were feeling the heat. Frank Sharry, executive director of the pro-immigration America's Voice, said in a statement that Democrats must vote against the deal to prove their commitment to DACA recipients.
