Newt’s World – Episode 315: Capitol Hill Chaos

Newt describes the challenges the Democrats and Republicans are facing in coming to a deal on the Reconciliation bill, the Infrastructure bill and the debt ceiling.

The progressive left-wing Democrats want their $3.5 trillion Reconciliation bill passed before they will vote on Infrastructure.  Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema won’t vote for a $3.5 Reconciliation bill, but support Infrastructure. And the person with an iron gavel, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, is trying to unite her party to get it all through.  Newt gives his take on this Capitol Hill chaos.
