Pelosi Election Night Speech [Full Remarks]
PELOSI: "Today is more than about Democrats and Republicans. It's about restoring the Constitution's checks and balances to the trump Administration. It's about stopping the GOP and Mitch McConnell's assault on Medicare, Medicaid, the affordable care act, and the health care of 130 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Let's hear it more for pre-existing medical conditions. It's about ending wealthy special interests' free reign over Washington. But more than anything it, it's about what a new democratic majority will mean in the lives of hard-working Americans. That's what it's about. Democrats pledge a Congress that works for the people. For the people. Lower the cost of health care by lowering the cost of prescription drugs, raise workers wages with strong economic growth by rebuilding the infrastructure of America, clean up corruption to make Washington work for all Americans. We will take real, very strong legislative actions to legislate, to negotiate down the price control of prescription drugs that is burdening seniors and families across America. We will deliver a transformational investment in America's infrastructure to create more good paying jobs, rebuilding roads, schools, water systems, broadband networks, schools and housing and beyond. We will drain the swamp of dark special interest money. Because when we do, Americans have greater confidence in everything there Congress works on from health-care to taxes to guns to clean air, clean water for our children when they know that the people's interest will prevail, not the dark special interests."
