5 Occupations Nancy Pelosi Might Be Better Suited For

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has been serving in Congress for 35 years. This means Ronald Reagan was still president when she was being sworn in. Seriously, Americans didn’t even have dial-up internet yet when this lady was passing legislation. If there ever were an argument for term limits, Nancy Pelosi would be atop that list. While she has done some good during her time in Congress, Pelosi has mostly fed at the trough of government and took big donor cash to remain in power.

Pelosi, who is running for her 18th term in Congress, became the first woman to hold the position of Speaker of the House in 2007, and was the highest-ranking female elected official in US history until Kamala Harris was elected vice-president in 2020.

In fact, Pelosi’s extensive time in office has been put into question quite a bit by the party’s younger members, such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY. Cortez, who is among the youngest members in Congress, has often been at odds with Pelosi.

“I do think that we need new leadership in the Democratic Party,” said AOC in an interview with the Intercept.

Nancy Pelosi has indicated her next term as speaker will be her last, but we all know she’ll be replaced by some other ancient in the Democratic party. That’s why we decided to come up with some more fitting occupations for House Speaker Pelosi.
