    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) expressed no regret during an interview Sunday morning about passing legislation that many experts have said turbocharged inflation.

    Pelosi made the remarks on CBS News' "Face The Nation" with host Margaret Brennan when she was confronted with the reality that Republicans could win back the House of Representatives during next month's midterm elections.

    "It's about getting out the vote, everything else is a conversation compared to that," she said. "But in order to do that, you have to have inspiration, you can't run on empty. And the fact is- is that, when I hear people talk about inflation, as I heard him there, we have to change that subject. Inflation is a global phenomenon- phenomenon."

    "It's not- the fight is not about inflation," she claimed. "It's about the cost of living."

    WATCH:


    Pelosi claimed that government spending "put people back to work, children back in school, inoculations in the arm, and it helped take us through that stage of the pandemic."

    "But, on things like spending you know, those $1,400 checks, putting cash out there, I mean, didn't that end up contributing to inflation?" Brennan asked. "Do you have any regrets about the bills you passed and how you structured them?"

    "No, absolutely not," Pelosi responded. "Because this- that was necessary for people to survive."

    WATCH:


    When asked if she would remain in leadership in the new Congress that begins in January, Pelosi refused to answer the question.

    "I'm not talking about that. I'm here to talk about how we win the election," Pelosi said. "I'm not here to talk about me. I'm here to talk about the future. America's working families, for the children. It's always about the children."
