A bitter Nancy Pelosi lashed out at Republicans in the House following their vote to pass the American Health Care Act and taking the initial step in replacing Obamacare. She says, “Let me just say that they have this vote tattooed on them. This is a scar that they will carry. So it isn’t, it’s their vote. It’s not the Senate vote, it’s their vote they are taking. So that is really a poor choice.” Pelosi almost sounds as if she’s describing the Democrats’ vote to retain her as their leader. Now that’s a scar.
The miffed and angry woman who forced the monstrosity on America seven years ago, continues, calling it a “cowardly choice, I might add. Why would they vote for it if they don’t think it’s worthy of support because the Senate will change it? From what I hear the Republican Senators saying, they don’t have any interest in passing this bill as is.”
She later says, “This isn’t rebel politics, this is about the American people. It’s about a pillar of economic and health success, health and security for America’s families – Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, the Affordable Care Act. For them to, in a very cavalier way, was really a stupid bill.”
Expanding on a topic she’s an expert on, stupidity, Pelosi adds, “It is a bill of deconstruction of government, it’s not a bill of saying, ‘We have a better way to do this.’ They’re saying, ‘We don’t want to do this.”
Of course Pelosi is going to be of the position that less government is worse and seething at the intrusion of reality, particularly in the case of the deconstruction of her bill, one that was so “smart” nobody could see it until after it was approved. Nothing cowardly about that process, right Nancy?
She’s wrong. It actually was a bill saying we have a better way to do this as well as one saying we don’t want to do this any longer. Her monstrosity was doomed from the beginning, as she knew and likely intended all along. The question was one of when it would fail, not if it would fail. That when component of the question may be being answered now.
She’s not going to be any fun sitting next to at dinner.
