Related to my earlier post, where I suggested there as advantage to each chamber from delaying debt limit proposal as long as possible, Pelosi says:

[I]f we had days, instead of backed up to hours, we could have said ‘you don’t have the votes, let’s go back in and how do we move this way in order to cut some of those cuts and have a better bill and get the votes.’ So I think we could’ve done better. I think they were successful at just prolonging it to the last minute so that we didn’t have that option and it was default or no default.
