‘You Held Out For Eight Months’: Lesley Stahl Calls Out Pelosi For COVID Relief Delay

Do you support Joe Biden as president?



>> Stahl: You yourself are not known as a person who compromises.

>> Pelosi: No, I am. I’ll compromise. We want to get the job done. I’m not— I’m— mischaracterized by the Republicans that way. But that’s a tactic that they use. But we know we want results for the American people.

>> Stahl: What about the Covid relief package?

>> Pelosi: Yeah.

>> Stahl: That was held up for eight months.

>> Pelosi: Right. But that was their obstruction. Understand this.

>> Stahl: Well, wait.

>> Pelosi: Was their obstruction.

>> Stahl: Yours too.

>> Pelosi: Their obstruction.

>> Stahl: No, yours too. Takes two to—

>> Pelosi: No, it wasn’t obstruction.

>> Stahl: You held out for eight months.

>> Pelosi: No, no. We held it up because there was no— no respect for our heroes, our— our state and local health care workers, police and fire, our first responders, our sanitation, transportation, food workers, our teachers, our teachers, our teachers. They would not go down that path.

>> Stahl: There’s a member of your caucus who said specifically that, “We look like obstructionists, and it was a mistake.”

> Pelosi: I don’t remember anybody saying that. And-

>> Stahl: But—>> Pelosi: —They may have. And they may have. But it isn’t— it wasn’t a mistake. And I would not, and nobody expects me to, to support something that solidifies injustice in our country.
