REPORT: Pelosi booed at liberal conference


PHILADELPHIA — Some attendees of a liberal conference booed at least twice when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s name was mentioned.

The first round of boos came when Oregon Sen. Jeff Merkley spoke about Congress passing a $4.6 billion border bill last month, in a setback for Pelosi. Merkley said Senate Democrats expected the House to go to conference on the bill, but the lower chamber didn’t after a revolt by centrist Democrats.

The article goes on to state the following:

“We lost all the leverage that the progressives had worked so hard to get,” he said Friday at Netroots Nation, an annual gathering of liberal activists. “The House has to carry its weight to restore the values of America. It failed on this occasion. That’s very frustrating.”

“The complete assumption on the Senate side was that Speaker Pelosi would go to conference, and she didn’t,” he said, prompting boos from the audience.

There were more boos when Pramila Jayapal was asked about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s feud with the House speaker. Despite the boos, Jayapal defended Pelosi.
