House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats are open to listening to what Republicans have to say on infrastructure legislation but appears to push back on calls by them and West Virginia's Senator Manchin for a smaller price tag than the $2.5 trillion proposed by the president, saying, "that it can't be too small, because what we're talking about now needs to be transformative and it has to be big."
