“Yes, I am,” Pelosi told a CNN reporter on “State of the Union” when asked if she would seek to get the spokesperson again, then added, “Let me also say we have to win the Senate.”
When asked whether she would stick to going ahead with a stimulus bill in the event that Democrats win control of both houses and get a bill closer to what she wants, Pelosi told Tapper that “people need help right away.”
“We want to do that as quickly as possible. I thought the president did it too, and that was part of the influence that each side has because we want an agreement,” she said. “Why talk to each other if we don’t think we can reach an agreement?”
“So, again, it could happen this week in the House of Representatives, but it’s up to (Senate Majority Leader) Mitch (McConnell) whether or not it’s going to happen in the Senate, and go to the President’s office, which is our hope and our prayers,” she continued. .
