House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has dismissed calls for the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to bring new blood to leadership positions.
During an interview on Tuesday, Pelosi (D-Calif.) assured critics she’s not going anywhere.
Her statement came after fellow Democrat Representative Elissa Slotkin (D-Mich.) said that Democrats need to install a “new generation” of leaders at all levels of government.
Pelosi suggested that massive spending proposals, botched foreign policies and soft crime policies seen over the past two years, show what decades of experience can do.
“In some cases, there’s no substitute for experience,” Pelosi said. “And I think what we have been through, with the legislation under the leadership of President Biden, had been a spectacular job. He’s had a better two years than most presidents can name in recent generations.”
Meanwhile, a recent survey has showed that Americans overwhelmingly want an age restriction on those running for public office. This survey comes as Joe Biden’s mental faculties have been called into question. Critics are also pointing out that the long-serving members of “permanent Washington” are amassing wealth beyond what they should.
