***What the Democrats are doing to the Figureheads of their party is tantamount to elder abuse.***
"It was a beautifully contested race, a good – I think Members were pleased.  That’s what I want to talk about.  I wish that you could have seen the nominations and the acceptance speeches, because then you could have seen the common thread, the unity of our Caucus,
the values and vision, the knowledge of our subjects, the strategic thinking.  You hear me talk about that all the time, but all of it connected to the hopes and aspirations of America’s working families.  That is what unifies us.
So, I’m very honored.  I’m actually – I was kind of emotional earlier because of some things that were said in nomination, but also listening to the other nominations as well, as to not only the vision but the depth of commitment, the values of our Caucus.
So, I’m thrilled.  I’m excited, and I can’t wait to be working with the new President of the United States, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.  I’m sure we all share that view. 

And now, I’m pleased to yield to the distinguished House Democratic Leader, Mr. Hoyer.
Chairman Jeffries.  Thank you, Madam Assistant Speaker.  Any questions?  We have time for a question or two.
Q:  I wanted to ask the Speaker, can you talk a little bit about how you plan to unify the Caucus after the election in which you lost seats and there’s going to be a narrower Majority now.
How do you plan to govern moving forward?  How can you afford to pass meaningful legislation with just a few vote margin?

Speaker Pelosi.  It’s – let me first thank you for your question.  I thank my colleagues for their leadership and their remarks.
And one thing that we all agree on, in our Caucus and in this Leadership and those who will be elected tomorrow, is that elections are about the future.  It’s about the future.
We can talk about our Founders and the inspiration they are.  We honor them.  We can talk about our relationships and how they serve us well in our Leadership roles.
But the fact is, it’s all looking forward, looking to the future.  And our Caucus is unified in that respect, looking to the future for America’s working families.  For The People we will lower health care costs by lowering the cost of prescription drugs,
preserving the pre-existing condition benefit and other benefits.  For The People we will increase paychecks by building our infrastructure in a green, resilient way.  And For The People, we will have cleaner government.
So, we have had a tremendous amount of unity.  The fact is, to have fewer Members, but the White House***, but the White House is a source of – we’re sad to have lost the Members we have.  

***This is a disputed statement***
We’re ready to go again.  We’re preparing for that.  We have been preparing for that.  Some of our colleagues are ready to go again.  Some are thinking about it.  So, we just see the next election right on the horizon.
But I want to remind – because I tried to win the House, when I wasn’t in the Leadership and then when I was, when the Republicans had a six or seven vote Majority.  People forget that, like in ’04, ’06, you look it up.  Do we have a – we’ll make it known to you.
So, they make it look like this is historic.  No, they had a smaller Majority.  Now, we don’t know what our outcome will be.  We’re still in New York, Illinois – Iowa – New York, Iowa and California.  So, we’ll see what that comes out to.
But having the Majority, having the gavel, holding the House and winning the White House is time.***  It is an opportunity for us to work together with the President. 

***This is a disputed claim***
And having a president is a unifying – has a unifying impact as well, especially when he’s a unifier like Joe Biden.

***HA! GOOD JOKE!***
So, I’m excited about the prospect, and sometimes when there’s a smaller number of people, you see the urgency of listening to each other, respecting each other’s voice because we all have to go down the path mostly together.
***It goes on but I don't want to be a part of the abuse.***

Today’s announcement by Mr. Taylor demonstrates that he was clearly pursuing a self-serving, self-promoting agenda while at the Department of Homeland Security rather than pursuing an agenda aimed at securing the Homeland.
Having worked with Mr. Taylor on the President’s immigration and counter-terrorism policy agenda, I can attest that he never vocalized disagreement with the President’s policies – and in fact expressed strong support.
