Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused the Republican Party of having a “disdain” toward working people as negotiations over the next coronavirus stimulus package continues to be delayed.

When asked if there was any progress made toward helping working-class people with unemployment benefits due to expire on Friday, Pelosi said:

“While they have a disdain or sort of a condescension toward working people, it seems because they don’t trust how they might use the $600."

"That kind of thing. ‘Oh, they have money to pay the rent. They are just not paying the rent,’” she said.

“We cannot operate if we're not even stipulating to a basic set of facts: the people are hurting, that unemployment is high and that we have a way to address this in terms of honoring heroes, testing, tracing, treatment as well as money in the pockets of the American people, being respectful of them and understanding their needs,” Pelosi added.

WATCH:

Pelosi's remarks come as Democrats and Republicans continue to negotiate unemployment benefits.

Pelosi compared it to a flamingo and a giraffe trying to mate.

The package, which will boost unemployment benefits, now has a gap between both party's policy ideas.

“It’s like a giraffe and a flamingo,” said Pelosi, Politico reported.

“They’re both at a zoo."

"Leader McConnell said, ‘We need a pause.’"

"Then came back this Monday with a piecemeal.

"Well, that’s not – this is as big as it gets, a plague that has an impact on our economy."

Pelosi said that 'following science' was a central point to combating the coronavirus pandemic.

"And it's about the lives of the American people, the livelihood of the American people and the life of our democracy," Pelosi said on Wednesday.

The speaker said that "following science" was a central point to combating the coronavirus pandemic.

“But if you don’t believe in science and you don’t believe in governance, as they don’t seem to, then that makes it more problematic," Pelosi said.
