Video Transcript

- Are you saying with this new framework that the bill will not be $3.5 trillion?

NANCY PELOSI: No, I'm not saying that at all. No.

- Are you guaranteeing--

NANCY PELOSI: No.

- --that this bill will be done on Monday?

NANCY PELOSI: I'm not-- I'm not saying that. I'm saying-- well, as-- we'll bring our legislation forward as it's ready. We didn't say anything about what the framework was, the price tag. We're talking about the values contained therein. We are for the $3.5 number because that's the number that the president and the Senate sent us. We marked up to that. And now we'll go to the next step.

But I think we're in a very good place. I've always been very calm about this because it's like you-- it always happens the same way, all this bluster and this and that, and who's there, and who's there. But at the end of the day, we will be unified for the American people. And we couldn't be better led than by Joe Biden and his vision, his vision for America's working families so that we have fairness in our economy and justice in our environment, as well as in our economy and every other way and that we open the door for women-- women to succeed in the workplace. So one day at a time. Thank you all very much.
