Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stopped by CBS’ Face the Nation over the weekend to discuss, among other things, how Democrats need to reshape the narrative around inflation; Pelosi says “change the subject.”
“When I hear people talk about inflation… we have to change that subject. Inflation is a global phenomenon,” Pelosi tells host Margaret Brennan. “The EU, the European Union, the UK, the British, have higher inflation rate than we do here… The fight is not about inflation. It’s about the cost of living.”
“If you look at what we [Democrats] have done, to bring down the cost of prescription drugs, to bring down the cost of- of energy and the rest in our legislation, you will see that that has been opposed every step of the way by the Republicans, and they have no plan for lowering the cost of living or helping with inflation,” Pelosi added.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Pelosi “wants to change the subject away from inflation” in a tweet Sunday. “The American people deserve a change away from Democrats’ one-party rule,” he added.
