Yesterday The Daily Wire posted an article about a recent statement from Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
The article reports:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) berated reporters during a press conference on Tuesday for not doing a better job of selling the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill.
Pelosi’s remarks came in response to a reporter telling her that a new poll found that only 10% of Americans knew a lot about what was in the bill and that the majority do not know about anything in it.
“So, do you think you need to do a better job at messaging?” the reporter asked. “And going forward, how do you sell this if ultimately–”
“Well, I think you all could do a better job of selling it, to be very frank with you, because every time I come here, I go through the list, family medical leave, climate, the issues that are in there, but it is true, it is hard to break through when you have such a comprehensive package,” Pelosi fired back. “But as we narrow it down and put it out there, I think that it will and for example, one of the things in the bill is the continuation of the Biden tax credit. That is child tax credit that is in the rescue package that has great appeal. Do people know where it springs from? No, but it is a vast bill. It has a lot in it. And we will have to continue to make sure the public does, but whether they know it or not, they overwhelmingly support it. And by the way, women much more than men.”
It’s not the job of the media to sell the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill. It’s up to the media to inform American voters as to the contents of the bill and the consequences of passing the bill. It would also be a good idea to let voters know which Congressmen and Congresswomen support the bill. Americans can decide whether or not they support the bill. It is not up to the media to make that decision for them.
