Less than 24 hours after saying most House Democrats wanted to do "fewer things well," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shifted her message on Tuesday, saying she hoped they wouldn't have to drop any proposed programs as they try to shrink the size of their $3.5 trillion social policy bill and would instead seek to limit the time frame of the provisions to cut its cost.
