Pelosi: MLK Would Want Us to Fight for 'Living Wage,' Affordable Child Care

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed to know what Martin Luther King would have wanted on the 50th anniversary of his "I Have a Dream Speech," saying on Saturday that the late civil rights icon would have wanted the nation to "celebrate him, his birth, and his legacy by acting upon his agenda" and fighting for a living wage, paid medical sick leave for our workers, and quality affordable child care so "the power of women can be unleashed."

Pelosi also said King "would also want us to be fighting for voting rights" and Congress needed to pass new voting rights legislation in light of the Supreme Court's recent ruling that struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Pelosi said the District of Columbia should also get voting rights before the band signaled that it was time for her to get off the stage.
