(CNSNews.com) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” this morning that everything she does is about the children.
“You know, everything I do is about the children,” Pelosi said, while discussing her negotiations with the White House and Senate Republicans over a new COVID-19 relief bill.
“That’s the reason I – you know, having five children of my own, nine grandchildren,” she said. “I worry about everyone's children in America, of course.
“I have advice for them whether they want it or not,” Pelosi said.
“But if we're going to educate our children, we have to have the facts in terms of what is needed. And they're rejecting the expert testi---recommendations of the American Association of Superintendents of Schools. They said, ‘We have our own numbers,’ but they don't meet the needs of our children.
“If you’re going to educate children, it's not just about our federal dollars in emergency, which are essential. It's about state and local government, which do over 90 percent of the educating of our children.
“So, it's about the children.
“Let me just say, just yesterday – you know everything I do is about the children. That’s the reason I – you know, having five children of my own, nine grandchildren. I worry about everyone's children in America, of course. I have advice for them whether they want it or not.”
