Pelosi Defends Obamacare Waivers: “They’re Small Companies” …(Like Maine?)

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told CNBC that “only small companies” benefited from Obamacare waivers.

As Real Clear Politics pointed out, McDonalds, one of the nation’s largest employers in recent years, received a waiver.

So did Maine.

    This WOMAN, was ONCE, the SPEAKER of the HOUSE.

    To hi-jack a phrase.

    Pelosi has screwed up, immensely. Her chickens are coming home to roost. She has manipulating and hidden so very consequential elements in the Obama Scare health plan.


  • MrGoodWench

    So WHY exactly did the regime SELL waivers ?
    Wasn’t Obama-scare supposed to be the miracle answer to all our prayers ?

  • ant

    Can anyone be this ignorant about EVERYTHING!!? or does she just lie about everything?

  • Carbon Pootprint

    She’s the most honest speaker of the house evah!!! bahahahhahhaha

  • gus

    Pelosi, is delusional. Her district is a FREAK SHOW. But moreso, Pelosi says sh!t that she knows is nonsense. She expects, not to be CALLED ON IT.

    Like Biden.

  • jony101

    she looks and talks crazy. How do people keep reelecting her, shes obviously not well in the head.

  • gus

    ant. Name JUST ONE LIE, that Nancy Pelosi had told. THERE ARE NONE. Nancy Pelosi, loves the poor, she loves HOMO’S, she LOVES unions, she love THE CATHOLIC CHURCH.

    Which one of the ABOVE is the TRUTH!?? Hahahahahahahahahhahhha!!!

  • gus

    Jony101. 2 words. San Freaksicko!!!

  • madtntaxpayer

    Looks like she is cutting her beauty budget; the gray is showing at the hair roots, maybe her “shared sacrifice”. Sorry, but that is the only salient comment worth making after listening to this interview. Absolutely.No.Clue

  • MrGoodWench

    McDonalds is small company,
    and Iran is a tiny country

  • Fenway_Nation

    Didn’t Nevada recieve a waiver, too?

  • ohiochili

    Somewhere, in the deep, dark sub-basement of her mansion, there must be a hideous painting of her, a la Dorian Gray.

    (Of course, I know she has botox and the knife to help her out, but I just love the idea of a painting taking on her corruption)

    Its common knowledge among people who have dealt with her through the chamber of commerce here in CA, that she is barely a ‘functioning retard’.. Its true, I talked to somebody who met her, and he actually said that the people around her told her what to do, where to walk, what to say, etc.. He also said that her aides were constantly embarrassed, and that everyone in the room with her were gazing around at eachother, all amazed at the comical atmosphere.

    The fact that she rose through the ranks is an anomaly of CA politics.. She was from a district where a drag queen could be elected, and the more bizarre her politics, the quicker she made a name for herself.

    I’m not sure how this woman became leader of the House, but I guarantee you’ll find the filthy fingerprints of Affirmative Action, and her powerful family pulling the levers of power for her.

    The woman isn’t capable of having a normal conversation, nor is she likely to be able to take care of herself. How she ever came to her position… including the ‘writing’ of the healthcare bill, should shock the $hit out of us all. The bill was written by 10 groups over 5 years. She just put her name on it. I feel so ashamed FOR the reporters who have to hold up her myth. They must all cringe when they ask questions. I’d like to see an unedited interview. One.

    She may be nuts, but she has had a hand in causing the catastrophe that is the Obama presidency.

    Moreover, an investigation should be undertaken to see if she has benefited financially from her role in government. Just to know, during our nation’s financial crisis her net worth grew 62% last year:

    Pelosi should be arrested. In the event it can be proven that she worked to reduce our freedoms, her pension should be forfeited, and she should serve time for her unethical participation in the Progressive plan to push socialism down the throats of a free people.

    [[The 58-year-old Andover Republican — who bucked Beacon Hill by holding a sit-in in the House chambers two weeks ago — pried the shocking report from state officials. It showed that nearly 55,000 illegal immigrants received more than $93 million in MassHealth benefits for emergency medical services last year.]] a rare sighting from ma. even here people are starting to listen….shedding their cynicism but not in a way obama wants. patrickcare son of romneycare.

  • squeaky

    and these are all temporary waivers. leaves you wondering what will happen when that year is up. enough has been said about the unsustainability of obamacare….but in the world of wishful thinking….
    [[Does the unsustainability of the CLASS act finally doom ObamaCare?]]

    HMMMMM – correct me if I am wrong here but there is a little tingle at the back of my brain whispering to me . . . isn’t Senator Olympia Snowe from Maine . . . and wasn’t she one of the very few Republicans that voted for Obamacare? I smell a payoff here . . .

    Why YES – yes she was . . . the ONLY Republican to vote the thing out of committee . . .

  • Atlanta Media Guy

    Pelosi is a lying sack of socks, and she smells like one to. Liar, Liar pants on fire. Why is it that the democrats have to lie about everything they seem to do for us “regular” folks. I guess we’ll have to pass her before we really know what’s in her……

  • DINORightMarie

    Pelosi, like Reid, is a living example of why a functional intelligence test, and sanity test, should be realistically considered.

    Both are either delusional, suffering from dementia, or just dirt stupid – but corrupt and willing to be used for personal and ideological gains.

    I agree with both @Billy Barty and @American Woman.

    To @Billy: you say it’s “common knowledge” – is that in San Fran? Or do you have anyone/any links you can reference? Personally, I would LOVE for someone to do an expose on Pelosi, even if it is online…..she is dangerously corrupt and incompetent – downright evil, IMHO.

    To @American: hopefully when the 2012 election settles the DC fate toward Conservativism and restoring our Constitutional republic again, they won’t destroy all the electronic and paper evidence to obstruct an investigation. These gangsters know the drill; so they will cover their tracks. That is my fear. Issa and Grassley are up against a machine of looters, moochers, and organized criminals, IMHO. Chicago on the Potomac – on steroids.
