“However, the idea that denying passage of the Senate’s Bipartisan Infrastructure bill [BIF] somehow exercises 'leverage' over some of our more fiscally conservative members is wholly misguided."Between the lines:It’s unclear how many of the nine centrists who forced Pelosi to schedule the vote by Sept. 27 are actually on board for a big spending bill.

On Friday night, five of them — Reps. Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Ed Case (D-Hawaii), Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.), Jared Golden (D-Maine) and Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-Ga.) — met with the speaker.Some of them have indicated privately and publicly they're opposed to a $3.5 trillion price tag.

Gottheimer, the group's leader, insists the Senate must move first and establish the bill’s price tag, which can then be considered by the House: “Whatever we can get 51 in the Senate on, which we will, we will get done and it'll be coming into law,” Gottheimer told NPR on Saturday.

Driving the news:Progressive lawmakers are still threatening to tank the bipartisan bill if the outlines of a reconciliation package aren't agreed to in the House and Senate — and insist they have the votes to kill the bipartisan package.Story continues headtopics.com

"I don't believe there is going to be a vote," Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union." “The votes aren’t there.”The big picture:House leaders promised all last week they will hold a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure package on Monday or Tuesday.

Pelosi left open the possibility of reneging on her deal with the centrists."We will bring the bill to the floor [Monday] for consideration," she said on ABC's "This Week." "I'm never bringing a bill to the floor that doesn’t have the votes.”

"You cannot choose the date. You have to go when you have the votes, in a reasonable time," Pelosi also said. "It's an eventful week."What's next:Pelosi will convene the House Democratic caucus at 5:30 p.m. ET Monday to make her case before the vote.

Under budget rules, the committee wasn’t allowed to significantly amend the 2,465-page measure, the product of 13 other House committees.
