Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi responded sharply to a reporter who asked her about the debt ceiling Wednesday.
“Why get mad at members, why twist the arms of moderates, if this is not going to move anywhere?” the reporter asked, noting that the debt limit extension might not advance in the Senate.
“What are you talking about?” Pelosi responded. “We have a responsibility to lift up the full faith and credit of the United States of America, that’s what we have to do.”
The Speaker of the house said that the House cannot pick and choose their actions based on what may happen in the Senate.
