PELOSI: "Well, I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you. Because every time I come here I go through the list, family medical leave, climate, the issues that are in there. But it is true. It is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package. But as we narrow it down and put it out there I think that -- for example, one of the things in the bill is the continuation of the Biden tax credit, the child tax credit that is within the rescue package. That has great appeal. Do people know where it springs from? No, but it is a vast bill. It has a lot in it and we will have to continue to make sure the public does. But whether they know what or not, they overwhelming we support it. And by the way, women much more than men."
