Perriello: “Somethings are worth fighting for”
I just finished an interview with Virginia Rep. Tom Perriello who is taking part in his first House Democratic issues conference. I asked the freshman congressman how important it was for his fellow Democrats to pass a stimulus package that includes GOP support.
He told me that he and his fellow Democrats have worked hard to bring Republicans to the table, but there are parts of the stimulus package that are too important and aren’t worth bending on. He pointed to portions of the plan that are designed to help “working families” in particular.
I’ll have more of my interview with Congressman Perrillo tonight during my live report on NBC12 at 11pm.
