Pelosi: A Republican Friend Told Me The Party Doesn't Care About "Really Hungry Children"


Addressing the California Democrats State Convention in Los Angeles on Saturday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told attendees she was told by an anonymous Republican that his party doesn't care about "really hungry children."

"I asked a Republican friend why his party remains so opposed to extending the vital lifelines for struggling families and really hungry children," Pelosi said. "This colleague's response was telling in its blunt nature and it's stunning in its honestly. What he said was to the Republican caucus, these people you are talking about are invisible, and the Republican caucus is indifferent to them."

"Invisible and indifferent. This is just plain wrong. That is not the leadership the American people deserve and it is up to us to demonstrate clearly how Democrats are different. That no American is invisible to us and we will never be indifferent to their needs. We know and care about the needs of the American people," she said.
