In an open letter to Democrats, Nancy Pelosi urges her colleagues to continue fighting the House spending bill.
"Dear Democratic Colleague," writes Pelosi.
"It is clear from this recess on the floor that the Republicans don’t have enough votes to pass the CRomnibus. This increases our leverage to get two offensive provisions of the bill removed: the bank bailout and big money for campaigns provision.
"However you decide to vote in the end, I thank those who continue to give us leverage to improve the bill.
