Pelosi, Gillibrand embarrassingly dig the hole deeper

As the Obamacare bus continues rolling out of the station, and over millions of Americans, Democrats continue either jumping ship or circling the wagons on the health care reform disaster.

On Sunday, Nancy Pelosi appeared on Meet the Press to explain her comment she uttered years ago about the need to “pass the law to see what’s in it.”

This is my favorite part of her non-answer:

However, I stand by what I said there. When people see what is in the bill, they will like it. And they will. And so, while there’s a lot of hoop-di-doo and ado about what’s happening now — very appropriate.

Let me paraphrase for Mrs. Pelosi: “Shut up and enjoy this amazing gift we have given you. You will thank and praise us once you realize how much you need us. Peasants.”

Next, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand also spoke Sunday sitting down on This Week with Martha Raddatz. Unfortunately, the former Clinton administration official, George Stephanopoulos, was not in on Sunday to toss the softballs.

That’s good stuff, isn’t it? Did you catch that phrase in the middle there?

No, we all knew, the whole point of the plan is to cover things people need, like preventive care, birth control, pregnancy

We all knew? What did we all know, Senator? You didn’t seem to finish that thought and the corrupt, Democrat-cheer-leading host didn’t bother to follow up. Let me offer some possible ways to complete that sentence.

We all knew…

  1. ..that millions of people who currently like their plans would lose them.
  2. ..that the President was lying to voters.
  3. ..that Obamacare would create some “winners” and “losers” along the way.

I’m being generous with the third option, that’s the euphemism going around Democratic circles about “winners” (nobody) and “losers” (everybody).

    It seems the GOP is starting the parade before the final gun. On an official GOP website they claim it fulfilled it’s pledge to REPEAL OBAMACARE” by giving it a big check mark complete.SURELY THE PARTY KNOWS THE PUBLIC ISN’T STUPID AND UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VOTING TO REPEAL AND ACTUAL REPEAL.

    From the article entitled: “GOP Website Claims It Fulfilled Pledge To Repeal Obamacare”

    • Yeah, that is bogus. They’re too afraid to actually push for genuine repeal of the law. If they pretend they’ve done it already just because the House passed it, it’s a joke.

  • Bob

    OK FOLKS YOU REALLY NEED TO BE SITTING DOWN FOR THIS ONE!

    On the official White House website entitled “We the people…..” where you can make a petition to the government more people signed a petition to build a “DEATH STAR” (34,435)than signed up for Obamacare (26,794).That’s a difference of 7,641 people. The White House actually responded and said”WHY WOULD WE SPEND COUNTLESS TAXPAYER DOLLARS ON A DEATH STAR WITH A FUNDAMENTAL FLAW….? NOW TAKE OUT DEATH STAR AND REPLACE IT WITH HEALTH CARE.

    The White House responded to the Death star BUT REFUSED TO RESPOND TO A PETTITION WHICH GOT 194,000 VOTES ENTITLED “DECLARE THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD ORGANIZATION AS A TERRORIST GROUP” Hmmmmmm!

    ARE YOU SURE that is what GOP promised BOB ??? I found THIS link on your link. You didn’t bother to check out it appears ???:

    “Because the new health care law kills jobs, raises taxes, and increases the cost of health care, we will immediately take action to repeal this law.”

    Is that NOT THE PROMISE ??? Was KEEP. A blind man can see it refers to House.

    LET’S USE some common sense. With just HOUSE under our belt, NO SANE individual would guarantee dumping bumcare in a flow of lava.

    Nate

    Your pessimism may very well be premature. (Ds) up for reelections are running NOT walking away from bumcare. Passed 40 + votes against bumcare didn’t draw out ONE (D) to our CAUSE.

    Before bumcare unveiling NO CHANCE of repeal. Now POSSIBILITY is IN SIGHT. SENATE may YET be posted in our column OR ENOUGH (Ds) mitigate damages by joining us against bumcare.

    Promise was:

    “…take action…”

    • Bob

      LMAO…….”TAKE ACTION?” THATS IT? YOU DON’T HOLD THE BAR FOR EXPECTATIONS TO HIGH FOR THE GOP DO YOU?

    Bill: Using your fuzzy logic our politicians can claim any number of legislation accomplishments simply by passing it in one half of Congress. Great re-election tool if you have a constituency made up of idiots.
