Nancy Pelosi: "We Have to Pass Our Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It"

Nancy Pelosi pushed Obamacare today during her speech to the 2010 legislative conference of the National Association of Counties. She told the group, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

FOX Nation and The Corner reported:

You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting. But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.

Call me old-fashioned but how about we read it first, then vote on it?

By the way… This was in her prepared speech.

    The best form of prevention for this country will come in the form of November.

    “Call me old-fashioned but how about we read it first, then vote on it?”

    You old fogey; that’s just being a stick in the mud. Heck, how can we expect to know what’s in it when the congresscritters don’t even know yet. (/sarc)

    Oh come on–trust them. By the way, are the Congressional showers Coed? Or who’s roaming the women’s showers threatening female Dems on health care votes? Naked Rahm…or naked Nancy?

    That is like checking to see if a firearm is loaded by looking down the barrel and pulling the trigger. Stupidity on parade.

    Prevention. It’s one of the two best ways to control costs. That, and rationing. Because, well, if people don’t stick to their diet and go ahead and get diabetes, then they really shouldn’t expect the rest of us to pay for their insulin, should they? Plus, some diabetics are really old and just aren’t adding that much value any more. So, should we give some parasite on the State their insulin, or should we pay for medicine for a poor child in the ghetto who still has a future? It’s very, very exciting!

    This is going to be trench political warfare. It is going to get ugly, and I hope Republicans are up to the challenge. Ultimately, Dems can pass this any time they want. But how do they solve abortion with reconciliation? I don’t understand that still.

    WTF alternate reality is this _______ living in?

    And who are the ______s that voted for this _____________? (You fill in the blanks with the invectives of your choosing)

    It’s just a steady stream of incredibly stupid quotes that we’ll all get to hear in the run-up to the ’10 and – especially – the ’12 elections.

    You can’t make this stuff up and be any more pathetic.

  • Kenny Solomon

    And nobody challenged her on that statement ?

    Not even meekly ?

    Every single elected, appointed and hired government official in that room needs to go….. as in “Jetson !!!!!…….. Yourrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre Fiiiiiiiiiiiiired !!!!!.

    Any civilians there need to be barred from ever voting again.

    It’s us too……. We’re not standing up enough to this nonsense, the dereliction of duty from this current administration, state, county and local governments.

    But the worst thing to me is the complete and across-the-board ignoring of The Constitution by every single CongressCritter “supposedly” on our side, in that The Constitution states that no American citizen can be mandated to purchase anything to remain a citizen in good standing.

    “…the elections of 2010 will end this tyranny.”

    By the time November rolls around considerable damage will probably have been inflicted on this country.


    And the ACORN voters arrive by the thousands everyday – – chanting SI SE PUEDE! SI SE PUEDE!

    ..what more can be said about Pelosi?
    She is a pathetic statist.. a ‘utopian malcontent’ willing to rip our country apart to satisfy her insatiable ideological appetite to control and regulate every breathe we take.

    meanwhile… a glimpse at life under Statist health care from across the pond..:
