Pelosi unsure omnibus can pass

PelosiHouse Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she’s unsure whether the $1.1 trillion year-end government spending bill will pass the House — despite support from President Obama and congressional leaders in both parties and chambers.

Asked if she's “confident” the package will win enough Democratic votes to move through the lower chamber, Pelosi didn't pause for a second.

“No,” she told reporters in the Capitol. “We're talking it through.”

A number of conservative Republicans are expected to oppose the omnibus bill over spending levels they deem too high and the absence of anti-terror provisions, meaning GOP leaders will likely need a significant number of Democratic votes to move the package on to the Senate.

Threatening that effort, a number of Democrats say they plan to oppose the spending package, arguing that it leans too heavily in favor of Republican priorities.

“I think it's a disgrace,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), a leading member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), said Thursday morning. “I think Democrats have to stand up tomorrow and say ‘no.’”
