1. Pelosi just said "this week" for the vote...

Let me just say that weíre going to pass the bill this week,


Iím never bringing a bill to the floor that doesnít have the votes.

From: https://democraticunderground.com/1016302758

So she's definitely abandoned her original plan of the $ 3.5 trillion bill first then the bi-partisan infrastructure bill, defeated by Manchin, Sinema and the "moderate" rebels in the House.

3. Actually

the Speaker also said they plan to vote on the reconciliation bill "this week".

Right now, there's at least 50 no votes from the House Progressive Caucus, so she can tell Gottheimer she can bring the bill to the floor, but it's gonna go down. Is that what he wants? Does he want that hung around his neck?

4. Her original plan was no vote on either bill until the reconcillation bill passes the Senate...

but that plan has been abandoned.

5. No Longer Necessary

According to Rep. Jayapal, the House Progressive Caucus and the Senate Dems are coordinating on a conference bill.

6. No evidence the two track plan has been abandoned

To the contrary Pelosi acknowledging the vote on the bipartisan bill could b delayed means the two track plan to pass Bidenís agenda is alive and well.
