Tom Wolf pressuring House members to support Nancy Pelosi

According to Politico, while some Democrats are leading a charge in opposition, Gov. Tom Wolf is helping to put his thumb on the scale to push Democrats in Congress to support Nancy Pelosi as the next Speaker of the US House of Representatives.

As their report from this morning notes:

“Govs. Andrew Cuomo of New York and Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania have been calling members-elect on behalf of Pelosi. As have former Vice President Al Gore and former Secretary of State John Kerry, according to Democratic aides.”

This direct effort is the latest in a history of efforts by Democrats to put Nancy Pelosi back in power, despite the fact that she has already set an agenda that would engage in Presidential harassment, roll back economic advances, and raise taxes on every American.

In the past, Pennsylvania Democrats have worked to undermine the rule of law in Pennsylvania by supporting an unconstitutional process that gave their Party a more favorable Congressional map that helped pave the way for their legislative majority and by supporting candidates who had already avowed their support for a return to the Speakership for Nancy Pelosi.

In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Jason Gottesman, made the following statement:

“By throwing their weight behind Nancy Pelosi, Democrats like Tom Wolf are saying they want to see one of the greatest economies in recent memory stopped in its tracks by leaders who have pledged to raise taxes and use their House majority as an investigatory arm to continue an agenda of obstruction and resistance.

“The Democrats’ goals have been clear from the beginning: more taxes, job-killing regulations, and the intrusive insertion of government into the lives of Americans. Their support of Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the US House of Representatives is another step in furtherance of the ends they seek.”
