‘We Can Go Bigger,’ Pelosi Says of Stimulus Bill to Combat Coronavirus

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she expected the House to pass a $2 trillion measure to aid an American economy devastated by the coronavirus pandemic.

Last night, as you know, the Senate passed important legislation. We’re very proud of the product. We think it is — we did jiu-jitsu on it, that it went from a corporate-first proposal that the Republicans put forth in the Senate to a workers-first, Democratic workers-first legislation. We will have a strong bipartisan vote, and we take some pride in the fact that, as I said earlier, congressional Democrats in the Senate and in the House were able to flip this over from a corporate, trickle-down Republican version to bubble up workers first, families first. This is an emergency, a challenge to the conscience as well as the budget of our country. And every dollar that we spend is an investment in the lives and the livelihood of the American people. We can go bigger.
