Pelosi says U.S. infrastructure bill will pass, eyes smaller social spending bill


House Speaker Nancy Pelosi expressed confidence on Sunday that the $1 trillion infrastructure bill will pass this week but sounded more doubtful about bringing it to the House floor on Monday as she previously pledged to do.

“You cannot choose the date, you have to go when you have the votes in a reasonable time and we will,” she said. “I’m never bringing a bill to the floor that doesn’t have the votes,” she told ABC News “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos, walking back comments from Friday that she would bring it to the floor on Monday.
