(CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) said in her weekly press briefing on Thursday that the Democratic Party is about “honoring the vows of our founders.

“Our values are about supporting America’s working families, about honoring the vows of our Founders, about honoring the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, honoring the aspirations of our children,” she said.

“That is why we vote so much alike because we have shared values,” she said.

Here is the excerpt from Pelosi’s press conference where she explains how her party shares the values of the Founders:

“We recognize our differences across the country, and we know what brings us together are our values, and our values are about supporting America’s working families, about honoring the vows of our Founders, about honoring the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform, honoring the aspirations of our children.

“That is why we vote so much alike because we have shared values. And I’ll just close, as I always close, because it’s going to be Fourth of July, and I say this almost every time I come together with people, perhaps not you yet, but our Founders gave us their guidance, and it became our guidance: E pluribus unum--from many, one. They couldn’t possibly know how many we would be or how different we would be from each other, but they knew we had to be one, and we must be unifying in our--when we win, we must be bipartisan, we must be transparent and open and we must be unifying to honor that value.

“How wise they were to know that if that was our driving force, we would always try to find our common ground, stand our ground when we couldn’t. They were great people to stand their ground, but I hope that you all have a happy Fourth of July and think in unifying ways.”
