Appearing on “Face the Nation” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats’ “hand is extended” to Republicans and “the door Is open” for compromise on the $2 trillion dollar plus White House infrastructure bill.
“I have no doubt that we will have a great bill in the House,” Pelosi said.
“I hope that it will be bipartisan. I’ve been in Congress long enough to remember when bipartisanship was not unusual and that actually growing- building infrastructure has never been a partisan issue. They would only make it- they made it partisan under President Obama by shrinking the bill. Hopefully the need is so obvious now that Republicans will vote for it. We’ll see. The door is open. Our hand is extended,” she continued.
“Let’s find out where we can find our common ground. We always have a responsibility to strive for bipartisanship,” Pelosi added.
