Why Pelosi Waited Until Yesterday to Nominate People for the Deficit Commission

Health care passed on Sunday.

The three people House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-SF) named all voted for health care.

The three were only officially named after they didn’t just commit to supporting the bill but actually voted for it.

Any other questions?

The three Pelosi selections are:

  • Budget Committee Chairman John Spratt (SC)
  • Budget and Ways and Means Member and Democratic Caucus Vice Chairman Xavier Becerra (CA)
  • Energy and Commerce Committee member Jan Schakowsky (IL)
