House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says Congress must think big when it comes to responding to the public health and economic crises brought about by the coronavirus pandemic and she urges colleagues to rise to what she calls a "historic challenge." The speaker rejects Republicans' calls for a pause in enacting further legislation, saying, "Hunger doesn't take a pause, rent doesn't take a pause, bills don't take a pause." The speaker also stresses that the key to reopening the economy is "testing, tracing, and social distancing." The Democrats' $3 trillion proposal includes new funding for states and local governments, SNAP and testing. close
