House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi explained what the Democrats stand for during an interview Sunday morning on “AM Joy.”
“Let’s get into the midterm elections. Democrats are hoping to reclaim the majority in the House of Representatives, which they lost in the 2010 midterm elections,” said Jonathan Capehart, the fill-in host. “There are a lot of people out there, particularly Democrats, who are saying the Democrats have no message, the Democrats they don’t know what they’re for, they know they’re against President Trump but they don’t know what they’re for.”
“Democrats are for the people. Democrats are for the people,” Pelosi responded. “It means we are for the people having lower health care costs, reducing the costs of prescription drugs. Democrats are for bigger paychecks by building the infrastructure of America, creating good paying jobs.” (RELATED: President Trump Begs Dems To Keep Supporting Pelosi)
“It’s not that we don’t know what we stand with, how do we convey the message, and every day we have a fight, what we have to do is brag about it more,” she continued.
As the midterm elections near, many Democrats in Congress and others running for seats have declined to preemptively announce their support for Pelosi should the party reclaim the House.
