WASHINGTON, D.C. – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday scolded the media for not doing a good job helping her and fellow Democrats sell the party’s radical $3.5 trillion spending plan.
“I think you all can do a better job selling it, to be frank with you,” Pelosi said.
“Only three percent of the debt that we are talking about here is incurred under the Biden Administration. And this is about, not as we go forward – this is about paying the bills,” said last week at her weekly press conference. “The way you have to pay your credit card bill, so does America. As I’ve said to you before, the 14th Amendment says the full faith and credit of the United States of America shall not be in doubt. For some reason, we’ve put ourselves in a situation to vote on this each year. We’ll have to examine that process.”
“We have to Build Back Better and to do so in a way that honors our climate goals, honoring our responsibility to our children to convey this planet in a responsible way, that does so that respects the needs of – not needs, the opportunities for working families with issues,” she added. “So, all jobs. Jobs, green technology, jobs for women in the workplace, dads who may need home help. So, of all the things, Child Tax Credit, Child Care Tax Credit, child care, issues that relate to universal pre-K, home health – home health services, if you have a senior, a person with disabilities in your home.”
