  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez already has plans to defy Pelosi

And soon-to-be-Speaker Pelosi has already declared that they will never include border wall funding.

Battle-tested Nancy Pelosi will in all likelihood win the gavel as speaker of the House of Representatives, a dramatic return to national power for the California Democrat who made history a dozen years earlier as the first woman to lead the chamber.

Democrats now have the opportunity to "look responsible" while working to end the partial government shutdown, which started on December 22. "This will give everyday Americans a lot more confidence that all the other things we have on the agenda are going to be done in a way that really meets their expectations and responds to their priorities". They plan to pass legislation to fund the federal departments now shut down.

"Democrats will have to get serious about border security so that a government funding agreement may be reached that can pass the House, earn 60 votes here in the Senate, and receive a presidential signature", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement.

Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, has given some candid analysis on her mother's leadership style, saying that the politician "will cut your head off" when asked by CNN how she approaches politics.

"We have to wait and see what happens with the Mueller report".

"None of us is indispensable, " Pelosi told The Associated Press on the campaign trail last fall, "but I do know that I'm very good at what I do".

Republicans control the Senate, which must also approve the budget.

In addition, Democrats are eliminating a rarely used rule that allowed any lawmaker to file a motion to force a vote on ousting the speaker. The historic firsts come from both parties and at least one member will be younger than 30.

He also said at a meeting with his cabinet that he is content for the shutdown to continue for "as long as it takes" because he believes "the people of this country think I'm right".

So far, Democrats have given no signs of needing to revise the measure to win votes - and assuming its passage Thursday afternoon, Pelosi plans to move quickly to vote on legislation that would reopen portions the government that have been closed for almost two weeks amid a standoff over money demanded by President Trump for a border wall.
