House Democratic leaders spoke to reporters about the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 pandemic relief bill, also known as the “American Rescue Plan,” which the House was scheduled to vote on the following day. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) compared the legislation to the Affordable Care Act, which she said was “the most consequential legislation that I have been a part of.” She said this coronavirus pandemic relief package “is definitely on a par with that, if not to exceed it, in terms of its impact on many more poor people in our country.” The Democratic leadership highlighted aspects of the legislation they say would help poor and middle-class Americans, and they criticized Republicans for not voting in support of the bill. close
