In new letter, Pelosi says “difficult decisions must be made very soon” when it comes to the reconciliation bill.

“Overwhelmingly, the guidance I am receiving from Members is to do fewer things well”
As Pelosi does, she often says things privately to leadership, then to her broader members and then publicly over a period of a few days to weeks

Last week on a call with her chairmen, she made the same comment about doing fewer things

More on that here:…
“The theme among members is to do fewer things better,” Pelosi told her leadership team and committee chairs on a private call Tuesday, where the issue was discussed at length.

Many of the House chairs spoke in favor”…
Pelosi has a press conference tomorrow so I suspect tonight’s letter (and last week’s private call) is a preview of what we will hear

BUT she adds they still don't have a counter proposal (presumably from Manchin/Sinema wing)
@PramilaJayapal Sanders next: "It is absolutely incumbent upon the senators and the few members of the House in opposition to start telling us what they want."
@PramilaJayapal "We are prepared to negotiate, we are prepared to compromise, but we’re not going to negotiate with ourselves," Sanders adds.
