Pelosi Wades In

March 27, 2012

Ms we got to pass the bill to see what’s in the bill … What a fine way for our legislature to do business.

As the Supreme Court wades through its second day of arguments that will ultimately decide the fate of ObamaCare, it is worth taking a moment to consider one of the comments uttered in recent days for and against repeal of all or part of the law.

Arguably no comment has been dumber than Nancy Pelosi’s Hail Mary defense last Thursday:

This is what our founders had in mind—ever-expanding opportunity for people.

You want to be a photographer or a writer or a musician, whatever—an artist, you want to be self-employed, if you want to start a business, you want to change jobs, you no longer are prohibited from doing that because you can’t have access to health care, especially because you do not want to put your family at risk.

Apparently, the House Minority Leader hasn’t familiarized herself with last week’s report by the Congressional Budget Office, which noted that between 3 million and 20 million Americans are likely to lose their employer-based annual health coverage beginning in 2019.

And how about that Obama present, if you like your doctor surly you can keep them. But you knew that from the start … Me I read bill before it passed, and knew how it was going to shake out from the start … Let me give you a clue, private insurance and private doctors doomed from the start.
