Pastor: House might not vote for so many changes to stimulus

The Hill:

Senators are pressuring Speaker Nancy Pelosi to embrace most of the stimulus bill they hope to pass early next week, claiming that adopting too many House provisions will doom the measure in the upper chamber.

Liberals in the House are already making noise that they might vote against the conference bill if it mirrors the Senate legislation.

Rep. Ed Pastor (D-Ariz.), a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said last week, “Many of us may not support it in the House if the Senate makes so many changes, such as adding more tax breaks and cutting spending provisions, which is what the Senate did.
