During a segment of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that Democrats are “there to make sure prevail when we go to the table for negotiation,” according to Breitbart News.
Pelosi claimed out that coronavirus tests, tracing, and treatment, funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, direct payments, and unemployment insurance, OSHA standards, funding for the Postal Service, vote by mail, and SNAP benefits are the “seven hills of Rome,” in the next coronavirus relief package.
She said that coronavirus “testing, tracing, and treatment” as well as funding for state, local, tribal, and territorial governments and “injecting funds into our — the pockets of the American people with what we have with direct payments, unemployment insurance, etc.” are the “three pillars of the HEROES Act.”
According to Pelosi, those “three pillars” are built on provisions that were included in the preceding coronavirus legislation.
“And so, those are what I call the seven hills of Rome, the three original pillars, the four issues that I just mentioned, that we’re there to make sure prevail when we go to the table for negotiation.”
