But six days later, Pelosi and Hoyer say they now intend to muscle through the changes on the floor with mostly, if not all, Democratic votes.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer on Tuesday vowed to move ahead with plans to allow proxy voting during the coronavirus pandemic, with or without support from Republicans.

Praising Biden's work in various policy areas, Pelosi touted his character in an implicit dig at the current president, saying: "Joe Biden brings values and integrity to work every day because he never forgets his roots". She said Biden is well-positioned to lead the country amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
