House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Holds Weekly Press Conference | TIME House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Holds Weekly Press Conference | TIMEA transversal Channel 1 morning, everyone – I just got back from the prayer breakfast so with all be very prayerful. The president is to submit in writing or in-person his a statement of the State of the Union. What happened instead was a president using the Congress of the United States. Her reality show presenting a state of mind that had no contact with reality whatsoever. It was quite appalling to hear the president say the 150 at least Millions that are faced with pre-existing medical conditions about a benefit that is afforded to them in the Affordable Care Act that he was protecting that benefit when, in fact, he has done everything 2.
In fact, we are fighting him in the porch right now to preserve that benefit with appalling and so clearly untrue and next he talked about another issue of concern to Marist Working Families. The issue of the cost of prescription drugs obligations to their families and we had talked about negotiating for lower prices. That’S the only way you’re going to get lower prices during the campaign, not at all said that to you before, because the president’s statements have sent Pharma stock soaring, I’m for him to represent that he was working on that we had been working on it.
We were hopeful to get something done. I guess I must have stepped it up, and then we talked about saving Medicare, Medicare, Medicare and Social Security Act and his budget. The 220 budget that she submitted to decreased in Medicare and Medicaid that they combined, including two in terms of Social Security, reduce the disability, benefit Social Security disease, get one after another right to the kitchen table of America’s Working Families to serve up these falsehoods. The triumphs of the Obama Administration on the economy vice-chair on that and it talks about all the things: job creation in the butt to succinctly put it.
When President Obama came into office, the unemployment rate was 10 %, it was 5 %. So President Trump mention of job creation, 18000 again momentum that was able to build on not a mess trillion dollars. Instead, This Administration is increasing each other. about 2 trillion dollars and therefore they tried to its supposed to pay for itself, but instead they want to Medicare and Medicaid to try to pay for that. But we’re not doing that and then throwing up the eight years of president President Bush was president the job growth under President Obama.
We gain more than 14 million private sector jobs and during his presidency more than that, and that is far more, is not a mess. Mr. president, and then that during his presidency, we rescue the Auto industry and all that that brought back the economy more than 20 million people affordable healthcare, but more in addition to that 150 million families with pre-existing conditions no lifetime limit, no annual limit child is of Until 26 years old can stay on your benefits, being a woman, no longer pre-existing condition, he did not.
He did not inherit the mess they heard of momentum of growth in our economy, and many more statistics are in the what I hope you will read, because it was appalling to hear him try to take credit for something that she can call with. The President Obama did a mess that he inherited when, in fact, it was a great advantage to the country that President Obama’s policies took us to very positive place of growth and job creation and deficit reduction, and I talked to my members and they have ideas. I always say: what does your idea do for growth, teufel creation of God, jobs and reducing the deficit? Let’S see how it meets those standards of what the president has done.
It is not that, and so for him to make it as if he did all this stuff and she still hasn’t watch President Obama’s. If you call that a real measure of success weather concerned about the fact that many of them have not received a raise and a very long time that 40 % of them could not find $ 500 for an emergency president goes on mom. I am off, in my view of Manifesto of Truth or falsehood, blatantly really dangerous to the well-being of the American people if they believes what he said so again, but they’re, not chamber of the House of Representatives be used as a backdrop for one of those reality Shows with unreality in his presentation and by the way but serious breach to start shouting for me on the floor of the house, totally inappropriate.
We’Re very excited about how we’re going forward to honour our promises to American people for the people we’re going to lower the cost of healthcare by Lauren Cross prescription drugs. When I pass with hr3, so people have enough that’s already hr3, maybe just three benefits from a people should know that it will lower the cost of prescription drugs for them. It will also increase benefits, Medicare, Dental hearing and visual of vision in the expansion of Medicare, which is the biggest expansion since its Inception, that that benefit will apply to not only Medicare call ICE will not going to apply to Medicare, but to all of the insurance Plans for help for prescription drugs are very excited about a charge rate, lower healthcare costs, medical condition benefit; secondly, bigger paychecks building the infrastructure of America and a green resilient way.
We thought we were a good place for both negotiated with the White House on hr3 until the president decided, instead of with American people. What’S a infrastructure bill would continue until you talk about rural broadband and I don’t pay tax. If I do need to talk about some many plan, he sent over 200 billion dollar plan, which he then said is a bad plan. It is, it was too small for too much burden on the locality Port Arthur to genda, lower healthcare costs, bigger paychecks, cleaner government.
We think we have a shot with him in the first two, but not on the 3rd, cleaner government. Now, that’s not something that they are. The Republicans have so yesterday to send it after first time in history has voted against his own president and a decision regarding impeachment. God bless him for his courage, China. President 7 present people use States as an excuse to do not to say bad things, but whatever he said was just so completely inappropriate, especially their prayer breakfast. So again expanding our what we talked about before service Transportation Systems, Broadband, rural Broadband, Urban desert Broadband.
A very important to her education, Commerce in the restaurant country and then we’ll go further with her initiatives on infrastructure for educators, School construction and some Housing Initiative will be unfolding, some of that and the week ahead. So we continue continue, continue. Do our world 275 or more bipartisan bills on Mitch, McConnell’s desk, the Grim Reaper has not taken any of them up. If he had one. I wish you would do. I have my volunteer at what she would do background check legislation which would save lives.
So it is an interesting time as we go forward, legislation related to the ER and across the country. You see what happened in Virginia and we’re hoping to move the date to include that that new state and that number to promote fat women is in this year. When we have the right to vote well, we’ve had a strained relationship for a while. We were able to keep government open and pushed back on his threats to shut down government. If we didn’t do this, we didn’t do that. That’S right and I was very proud of the work in a bipartisan way.
Appropriators left to their own devices. You presently say they can really work things out and we did and we pushed back on any threats of we work together on that we work together on the USS Mexico, Canada agreement of delivering it. I don’t know if he even knows what’s in it, because it’s so far difference of whatever he sent us to begin with. But I set you many times a day: does have a framework of enforcement for protection of our workers, protection of our environment and getting rid of his gift to farmer had a gift to Pharma in that and that text us another example of his be holding this To the pharmaceutical industry, do reduce the cost of prescription drugs and build the infrastructure during the campaign, especially infrastructure.
He knows our country needs that and I hope it wait. We were almost there and that it was time to pay for it, and then he was out the door, Honda Trade Agreement. I mean you just wasn’t that important, that we would walk away from what they were conceding to us, but they were conceding to us in that legislation that we didn’t get what we want. We couldn’t go that Pat, but we did now negotiation too much better trade agreements. What does that make you think? An insult to the Congress of the United States in the American people tilt their language is nothing but surprises.
Anyone know a time and they are giving us two people to do things. Just as remember. Charlottesville people are coming down that hill with tiki torches saying the Jews will not replace it, so Jews will not replace it and what was the president’s statement? They’Re good people on both sides really did you tell that replaces a good people on both sides so mysterious, and there are people out there who, for whatever purpose, I know I’m constantly, I’m not even go into the Target that I am because of them, but I Can’T worry about that, but that was there even before them.
Just working with President Obama stirred up some of those same people, but then I would like to think that I had nothing to do with what the White House was saying, but that’s what they’re saying is there going to be paid back to us for upholding the Constitution of the United States for honoring the vision of our Founders for a democracy or a republic if we can keep it for something Constitution and the aspirations of our children that depend on living in the Democracy. That is on question. In terms of that, will we have freedom of the press to be Guardians of the actor Mark worsey, so I’m not very fond of anyone anything they say, but if it’s threatening it’s wrong, I want to First salute managers.
I think they did a magnificent job and presenting the case for our Founders for our constitution of our country. It could not have been better served each and every one of them did a magnificent job, and Leadership was a blessing to our country. I’M proud of the worth of the Senate did their response to all of this and their unanimous vote on the house Democrats in support of our constitution. We are now it has spoken in terms of any punishment. He’S impeached forever, no matter what he says or whatever has Monte want to carry around.
You are impeached forever, you’re. Never getting rid of that scar. History will always record that you were impeached for undermining the security country, jeopardizing integrity and violating the Constitution of the United States are purpose in all of this, in addition to holding him accountable, so he stops doing what he’s doing thinks that she or he could have Liberty to take us away from a republic if you can keep it to a second amendment. Naples need to do whatever I want. No, that’s not what I heard Constitution is about it.
We will continue to do oversight to protect and defend the Constitution, which is 3 per week, all branches of government, each a check and balance on the other and tell him we have some cases in court now McCann and taxes in that, and that will take time. We didn’t need to have that come to fruition, because we had a strong enough case to impeach and remove those cases still exist. If there are others that we see as a notch eternity suggestion that you don’t. Actually, I don’t have to present understand about prayer or people who do pray, but we do pray for the night American pray for him at present present for still, President Obama a bit cuz, it’s a heavy responsibility and I pray hard for him because he’s so off The track of our constitution, r value, our country, the air, our children, breathe the water they drink and the rest.
He really needs our prayers, so he can say whatever he wants and say whatever he wants, but I do sincerely and without I pray for everybody else thought what he said about when he said about Senator Romney was particularly without class, but it’s a some people use Face as an excuse to do the wrong things that you remember what he said about Romney, you got that there is all those things if that’s the right audience, for God bless you mischaracterizing other people’s motivation. It’S talking about things that he knows little about faith and prayer.
No, I did not. I did not. I tore up a Manifesto of Miss truth, it’s very hard for us to get you to talk about the issues that we are working on, a charge, 3 infrastructure and the rest of that was necessary to get the attention of the American people to say this is Not true – and this is how it affects you – and I don’t know lessons from anybody, especially president United States – about dignity, dignity, it unheard of for the president to insult people there who don’t share his view, as well as to misrepresent prevent falsehoods.
Somebody use the word lie. I don’t like these about what he is saying. Don’T know. I think it was completely entirely appropriate and considering some of my other exuberance is within me. The courteous thing to do: Viking back for State of the Union building what you’re describing the next year. We will have a new president of the United States. That is an absolutely imperative for our country for our constitution, for the land that we love from sea to shining sea. What you do grades almost everyday, but several times a week for who we are as a people, a nation of immigrants unless you’re blessed to be born a Native American and Asian values, which he just is it just loyal to the Constitution? Where is the environment as a people and and undervalues who we are as a great country? That is a good that is a good country where people care about each other, with resistance of community chaplain, the things that he says and then you say to me tearing up his falsehoods.
Isn’T that the wrong message? No, it isn’t it’s just. I have tried to be gracious with him, I’m always dignified. I thought that was a very dignified act compared to my tattoo Burns, as I said, but I will not allow any president to use that Capital that chamber the House of Representatives at the people’s house as a backdrop for him. Now all presidents have guessed constant guest that was not a state of the union. That was a state to state of mind. Where are we? Where are we going and the rest? Not.
Let me just show you how many guests I can draw and let me say how I can give a medal of honor not here when he started talking about someone with stage 4 can’t do all of that. I thought he was. I don’t know which stage Carolina Country I feel very liberated. I feel that I have extended every possible courtesy auction every level of respect. I say to my numbers all the time. There’S no such thing as an internal animosity. There are Eternal friendships, but you never know on what cause you make together with somebody make perceived as your phone right now.
Everybody has a possible Ally, and whatever comes next in Pluribus Unum from anyone, didn’t know how many Revere how different would be, but they wanted always remember that we were one and they are founders, had their differences, as do we so again, I does the hand of Friendship to him to welcome him was also an act of kindness cuz. I to me like to get a little sedated feel that way last year too, but she didn’t want to shake hands. Speed. Reader just went through that thing, so I knew what was coming when I of falsehoods and but then the first quarter or third eye.
I think that has to be something that clearly indicates the American people, that this is not the truth and he has Shred-it. The truth in his speech is shredding. The Constitution is shredded state of his mind address. Thank you very much.House Speaker Nancy Pelosi holds her weekly press conference.
