REP. NANCY PELOSI: This is a ransom. This is blackmail. You won't get a bill unless Wall Street gets its taxpayer coverage. So it's really so sad that something as -- which I respect enormously the appropriation process, because it's hard. There's so many competing calls on resources, so much that we have to try to invest in the American people, their health, their education, the economic stability, their family, the air they breathe, the water they drink, and how we fund all of that. And I have some questions about some of that in this bill. But the fact is it's all a compromise. And it could have been a good compromise.
