“One of the things I’ve pledged is in my first hundred days only to do bipartisan proposals,” Delaney added.

When asked Sunday if introducing strictly bipartisan proposals would mean putting “Democratic priorities on the back burner,” Delaney said the first 100 days need to be used to show the American people “that we can actually start solving problems.”
“Then you start talking about some of the big things we need to do to build a better future,” Delaney told “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos, adding that he supports universal health care and legislation to combat climate change.
