House of Commons Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said at a virtual Sojourner Truth Project event last week that crowding out the senses. Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) and David Perdue (R-GA) would give them significant power to pass legislation because they can pass simple majority bills in the Senate using reconciliation.
Pelosi spoke virtually to the Sojourner Truth Project on December 22 via Zoom. During the event, she discussed how the potential victories of Democratic Senate candidates from Georgia, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock, would give Democrats significant power to pass legislation in Congress. She compared the potential power of their Democrats to having essentially 60 votes in the Senate.
“One more thing, because you know what I’m doing with the numbers, when we win these two seats plus Kamala Harris breaking the tie, it will be like getting 60 votes because once we have even a simple majority we can vote for reconciliation, which means you only need 51 votes to pass certain laws, ”Pelosi said.
The Senate generally needs 60 votes to pass a bill in the House; however, some Senate bills can be passed by simple majority through budget reconciliation. Reconciliation allows Congress to pass bills affecting spending, revenue, or deficit levels.
Several whistleblowers are giving their first-hand accounts of the fraud they witnessed in Georgia.
