House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signaled that she’s warming up to the Senate coronavirus relief bill after earlier arguing that the original legislation put corporations first rather than the American people. Now, Pelosi says that’s shifted from “corporations-focused to workers-first.”
“America is facing a grave health crisis with a serious impact on our economy. I salute the strong leadership of Chuck Schumer and Senate Democrats,” she said Wednesday. “I especially thank our House Democratic Committee Chairmen, who worked hard to move the Republican proposal from corporations-focused to workers-first and who will now review the legislative text of this agreement with our Caucus.”
The Senate is expected to vote on the $2 trillion plan Wednesday. Check SaraACarter.com for updates.
