VIDEO: Pelosi Refuses to Say If Bernie Sanders Agenda Is ‘Mainstream’

Do you support Joe Biden as president?

REPORTER: “You just said that it is your job to put forth an agenda that’s mainstream and non-menacing.”

PELOSI: “That’s right. That’s how we win the House. I’m talking about the House of Representatives.”

REPORTER: “Your agenda differs somewhat from what Senator Sanders’ agenda. You’re not advocating, for instance, Medicare-for-all. So I’m wondering, do you believe Senator Sanders’ agenda is mainstream?”

PELOSI: “I think that senator — healthcare is the most important issue in the campaign. There are three issues: healthcare, healthcare, and healthcare. That’s why part one of our agenda and how we won the election last time was to lower the cost of healthcare by lowering the cost of prescription drugs. Second was to build bigger paychecks by building the infrastructure of America in a green way, and the third was cleaner government. On the first two, I think we can find some common ground to work with the administration on the cost of prescription drugs. I hope so. Building infrastructure of America, I hope so. Cleaner government, not so. But that’s where we are. It is not unusual for a party platform or the candidates for president to have their own agenda that they would put forth. And it is not unusual for the House of Representatives to have its agenda as well. We have to win in certain particular areas. We’re not about a popular vote in the country or in particular states in terms of the Electoral College. We’re district by district, and that’s how we won last time. We demonstrated that we know how to win. Our impetus and that victory continues and the momentum is there to help us win other positions as well. When we win, we put everything on the table, have a discussion and see where we go from here. But it’s not about causing any division as we go forward. Unity, unity, unity.”
