Pelosi: Republicans 'Stupid' for Not Backing Green Initiatives

By    |   Wednesday, 19 October 2022 03:46 PM EDT

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview on Wednesday that lawmakers are "stupid" if they don't support climate change legislation.

She blasted Republicans over a wide range of issues, belittling them when she could not find better ways of debating.

Pelosi has been traveling across the country, averaging five states a week before the 2022 midterms. She said it's all about turnout and that the "public is with us." She said Democrats have outraised Republicans, who rely on their so-called "dark money."

Pelosi steered away from the top concerns pressing the nation, focusing on abortion rights, social safety net programs and climate change. Polls indicated that the top priorities for Americans right now, are the economy and inflation.

Instead she summarized rthe entire issue dismissively.

"Inflation's an issue, but it's global. It's global. ... What's [the Republicans'] plan? They ain't got nothing. When you bring down unemployment, inflation goes up ... so in any case, [President Joe Biden] brought unemployment [down], cut it in half," said Pelosi. "Inflation is there, but it's global and not as bad as it is in some countries."

Pelosi went on to say, "We're in great shape. Other people don't want to believe that." She acknowledged Republicans were running off of inflation, claiming Democrats need to get their message out better. She also said to alleviate Republican "dark money," they would pass a bill to change the way super PACS can raise and spend money.

"I do think that when we win, we have to pass the bill that reduces the impact of that big, dark money because it just chokes and suffocates the airwaves," said the speaker. "And that's what they're doing with their lies."

Pelosi didn't elaborate on the lies but remarked on "how stupid" Republicans are for casting doubt on the climate change issue.

"How in the pocket of the fossil fuel industry are they?" Pelosi asked.

Pelosi set he sites on media pundits next. She said they are treating the midterms as if it's a presidential election. She also complained about the news coverage allegedly being spun against Democrats.
