Pelosi stresses urgency for next relief bill: Hunger, joblessness don’t ‘take a pause’

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday stressed the urgency of passing the next coronavirus relief bill as Republicans suggest waiting to see how state reopenings and the distribution of funds already allocated in previous stimulus packages impact the country.

“Time is very important. We have lost time, but, again, setting aside how we got here, we can not take a pause,” Pelosi said Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“They may think it’s OK to pause, but people are hungry across America. Hunger doesn’t take a pause. People are jobless across America. That doesn’t take a pause. People don’t know how they’re going to pay their rent across the country. We have to address this with humanity,” she added.

House Democrats approved a $3 trillion relief package Friday designed to help alleviate the economic fallout of the coronavirus pandemic.
