Pelosi Misses Obamacare Vote for Wedding Anniversary

By    |   Sunday, 29 Sep 2013 07:56 AM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi missed an essential vote Saturday night to fund the government and avoid a shutdown to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary at an undisclosed location outside of Washington, D.C., Politico reports.

The California Democrat also skipped the critical caucus meeting prior to the vote, where the respective parties devise political strategy and whip votes.

In a letter to her colleagues, Pelosi said she would be "listening in on the conversations" of the meeting.

"Speaker Boehner has told me he has the votes for his proposals on his side of the aisle and that he will not need our help," Pelosi said.

In her absence, Roll Call reports that Pelosi's press office flooded reporters email inboxes throughout the day, slamming Republicans for their plan to defund Obamacare.

Roll Call also reported that Pelosi was spending her anniversary with her husband, Paul, at a "long-scheduled event."
