The Democrat-led Congress is giving House Speaker Nancy Pelosi a parting gift, tucked away in the omnibus spending bill, as her tenure as the party’s leader in the lower chamber comes to a close
In the 2023 omnibus spending bill, a provision renames a federal building in California after the 82-year-old Democratic congresswoman.
Republican Rep. Dan Bishop of North Carolina said in a Tuesday tweet:
“$65 million in two programs for Senator Leahy and a federal building named for Nancy Pelosi,” he said, referring to Democratic Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont.
“Swamp gonna Swamp,” Bishop said.
The provision, tucked 610 pages deep in the $1.7 trillion omnibus bill, renames the San Francisco Federal Building the “Speaker Nancy Pelosi Federal Building.”
The building currently contains office space for five federal agencies, including Pelosi’s district offices.
Pelosi will have the opportunity to sign off on naming a federal building in her honor when the House takes up the omnibus bill.
But what is Pelosi’s signature legislative accomplishment? That is a good question.
Could it be the 2008 federal bailout of Wall Street?
Biden’s disastrous “Build Back Better” agenda?
Or the so-called Affordable Care Act?
The swamp doesn’t care about achievements that benefit the American people, only ones that benefit and enrich themselves.
This is illustrated by the fact that Pelosi voted to rename a federal building in her own honor.
Yes, Pelosi was the first woman to become the speaker of the House, which isn’t without historical significance, but that’s about it.
Those who deliver results for the people, not themselves, are the ones that should be celebrated.
