For whatever reason, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi thinks that members of the media are her servants who should be “selling” her and President Joe Biden’s $3.5 trillion spending plan.
During a press conference on Tuesday, Pelosi shamed the media, telling them to do a “better job of selling” the Democrats spending plan.
“Do you think you need to do a better job at messaging, and going forward, how do you sell this?” CBS News’ Nikole Killion asked Pelosi.
“Well I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you,” Pelosi replied, saying that the media needs to do even more “selling” for the Democratic party. “Every time I come here, I go through the list … It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package.”

Check out what Fox News reported:
But the high price tag has been enough to make moderate Democratic Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, Ariz., and Joe Manchin, W. Va., hesitant to support the president’s agenda. The pair of senators have been caught in the crossfire for continuing to oppose Biden’s massive spending bill. ABC News recently hit Sinema for “taking a hard turn to the right,” and left-wing media personalities have routinely attacked them for stalling Biden’s plans.
Biden, Pelosi and more of his supporters have been routed by both liberals and conservatives for claiming the Build Back Better plan would cost “zero dollars.”
