Although the White House claimed Biden would not negotiate with Republicans on reducing wasteful spending, the administration engaged with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) on spending cuts, an idea that enraged the far left.
Extreme-left Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) warned Tuesday that any cuts to wasteful spending, including obsolete pandemic funding, would receive a backlash in the streets.
“I think there would be a huge backlash from our entire House democratic caucus, certainly the progressives — but also in the streets,” she told CNN.
