Transcript of Speaker Pelosi on ABC’s This Week:
George Stephanopoulos. So, I simply laid out a reasonably daunting checklist proper there. You will have referred to as the following few days a time of depth for Congress.
Have you ever ever confronted a problem with a lot at stake?
Speaker Pelosi. Each time we face a problem, you say it’s a historic problem, whether or not it’s passing the Inexpensive Care Act or different laws that we handed within the earlier Administration.
It’s all of the fantastic legislative course of that we have now. However I thanks for calling this President Biden’s agenda as a result of that’s precisely what it’s. That is the imaginative and prescient of the President. And he has stated that whereas he desires to cross the infrastructure invoice – and we’ll – that he won’t confine his imaginative and prescient for the long run to simply that invoice, that it needed to be about Constructing Again Higher.
And Constructing Again Higher has the help over 95 p.c of our Caucus. So, whenever you say Democrats divided — no, overwhelmingly, I’ve by no means seen, truly, over 95 p.c of a Caucus nearly for something. There are some who disagree, and I respect that, in regards to the dimension of the bundle, and a few within the Senate – a pair within the Senate as nicely. And we have now to seek out our frequent floor, respectful of one another’s views.
However this isn’t about moderates versus progressives. Overwhelmingly, everything of our Caucus, apart from a couple of whose judgment I respect, help the imaginative and prescient of Joe Biden. And we’ll cross – make progress on it this week.
Democrats Aren’t Divided. Democrats Are Arguing About Logistics.
Even the moderates who’ve voiced issues in regards to the invoice are solely frightened about the associated fee. They’re in settlement on the legislative priorities. The progressives try to guard their pursuits and ensure that the moderates don’t get chilly ft and bail on them.
The dance that’s ongoing is a difficult negotiation, however nothing has come as much as counsel that Democrats are in any hazard of not getting the laws handed.
The media loves the Democrats divided narrative, and as regular, they’re unsuitable.
