House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is trying to blame Republicans if there’s a government shutdown at the end of the month:
.@SpeakerPelosi on the debt ceiling: “The former president was famous for not paying his bills — [Republicans] want to do that again.”

In light of that claim, a three-year-old tweet from Pelosi has been spotted that makes things awkward:
This aged well.

Pelosi would really rather people not dig this one back up from 2018:
This is the first time in recent memory that a government shutdown has been possible when one party — one party — has controlled the White House, House, & Senate. The Republicans own that. #DoYourJob

As they say, there’s always a tweet!
Dems don't need a single GOP vote to pass their agenda. They need to get every Dem vote and can't do it. https://t.co/EQwIgPvZ3x

And they need a way to blame the Republicans for not being able to do so.
Pretty sure this is YOU now

This is pure gold. Will any reporter ask her why this time it is different for Dems? https://t.co/x4falo3Xil

Luckily for the Dems they have most of the media on their side, so it’s likely that nobody will ask Pelosi about that tweet.
