House Speaker Nancy Pelosi traveled to Texas this week to tout health care aspects of the Biden administration’s “Build Back Better” agenda – but a Republican spokeswoman said Pelosi’s timing was all wrong.
After a deadly Kabul airport attack in Afghanistan left 13 U.S. service members dead last month, the San Francisco Democrat’s services were needed more in Washington than in Austin, the GOP spokeswoman said.
The article goes on to state the following:
“It’s inappropriate and insensitive for Nancy Pelosi to be promoting the Democrats’ agenda when Americans are still stranded in Afghanistan,” said Macarena Martinez of the Republican National Committee (RNC), according to KXAN-TV of Austin.
“Pelosi should get back to Washington, D.C., convene Congress and demand answers for Biden’s failed withdrawal in Afghanistan.”
Pelosi joined Texas U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett and Austin Mayor Steve Adler in Texas on Thursday. She was in Austin touting “progress on health care expansion under the Build Back Better Act,” KXAN reports.
Pelosi was highlighting Democrats’ priorities in the forthcoming act, “which in part aims to strengthen health care access for families,” according to KXAN.
“I like to think of it as build back better with women, minorities, people of color, many new people into it,” Pelosi said. “And, many of the health care provisions are liberating for people to participate. If we can have family and medical leave paid — paid family and medical leave — if we can have what’s mentioned about home health care for our seniors, people with disabilities and our children — that enables people to be more free to be in the workplace. Child care, child care, child care can be very liberating.”
While in Texas, Pelosi launched criticism at Texas Republicans over the state being one in 12 not offering expanded Medicaid services. She also criticized Texas’ new abortion law.

Texans don’t want Pelosi here. Go back to DC and do your job. There are still Americans stranded in Afghanistan. https://t.co/9JUEB4vUr2
