U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday that lawmakers are committed to reaching a deal on sending economic aid to those hurt by the coronavirus pandemic, despite the failure of Republicans and Democrats to find a compromise for many weeks.

“I just got off a call with my colleagues. We are committed to staying here until we have an agreement – an agreement that meets the needs of the American people. We’re optimistic that the White House, at least, will understand that we have to do some things,” Pelosi, a Democrat, said in a CNBC interview, adding that the disagreements are on how to “crush the virus.”
