Statement Analysis: Nancy Pelosi

Q.  Did Nancy Pelosi read the almost 3,000 page Obamacare bill as claimed?

Decide for yourself from the following quotes:

"We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”


She was asked, "What did you mean by this statement?"  Pelosi said that the quote “was taken out of context” and it is most often quoted “by the far right.”
The health insurance industry, she said, spent “$200 million while we were debating the bill to lie about it. … I hate to use the word lie. I hate to use the word hate. I hate to tell you, they’re lying about it.”
“We’re in the trenches fighting this out,” she said. And: “We don’t even have a bill written yet. The Senate has not acted. And that really, the president really thought he was going to get a Republican vote in the Senate… You can’t say it’s in the bill, read it, ’cause there is no bill.
Also, Pelosi said “we read the bill.”

There is NO context in which that quote makes any sense.

How could she read the bill if there was no written bill???

for all she knew it could have been a bill that allowed for the government to take immediate possession of all of a patient's earthly belongings and earned income for an interest gaining hospital bill.

Good ol' politicians. They are the richest of the rich but never fear, they are fighting for us little people, as they keep passing pay-raises for themselves. Of course, remember, they fought hard to bring us Obamacare, but they themselves REFUSE to use this very health care plan!! They made a special entitlement to allow the congress to keep the current healthcare plan they have. They hate the Obamacare so much they themselves will not use it! That should have been a warning to us little people!! If your own Congress will not use it, why should you be forced to use it?

I like how Dan Quayle misspelled a word and the MSM was all OVER it, he was a dumb butt according to the media. Our own president Obama says "He visited 57 states, and thinks he still had a few to go" and it was ignored. It was ignored because Mr. Obama is so smart, at least he was way smarter than Bush, according to MSM. /sigh famous politician quotes. They are our leaders. They are our elected officials. I would give anything if we could go back to the days of NOT PAYING them for their service and instead having them volunteer to work for US PEOPLE.

And Nancy..oh my she gives so many great quotes it is not even funny. I would like to laugh at most of them, but I know she truly believes what she says.

No. Nancy Pelosi did not read the Obamacare bill as claimed. It could be due to her many facelifts in that her eyes are now pulled on top of her head :)

Here is another fine political quote by our President-

The war at the "American Idol" judges' table was escalated all the way to the Commander In Chief this weekend when POTUS appeared on Michael Yo's radio show.

"I think that they are going to be able to sort it out," Obama said ... "I am confident."

Obama continued, "I'm all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards."

And when asked who's his favorite, Obama actually picked a side -- replying, "Mariah. She's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She's a wonderful lady."

He added ... "Nicki, I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."

If that is the case, maybe she stands on her head while she reads the bills??

I appreciate that the POTUS has the time to weigh in on pop-culture. Frankly, I was worried about the potential WAR between Nicki and Mariah. I was also very proud of our POTUS when he said, " I am just here to be eye-candy" on The View.

I guess if he wasn't doing the talk shows and radio talks, he would be out besting his golf scores, shooting hoops or drinking beer whilest smoking his Newports. It is so awesome to know the POTUS is the same as me!! /sarcasm ...now back to the topic.......

I am a conservative. I read what Nancy Pelosi said I maybe wrong, but I do not think she read the (at time) 2700 page bill. I do not think anyone in the House or Senate read it, except for maybe Dr. Tom Coburn. The rest had staff read it and report in on it. The bill actually went from about 2700 pages down to 906.

I think what she was saying was lets pass the bill so we can read what is LEFT in the bill. If I understand, this is the normal with our elected officials. They have someone on their staff read it, then they tell the official what needs to be done and removed or added.

So-and-so has a bill that is 500 pages.... he needs one more vote to get it passed, so he offers so-and-so from such-and-such place a chance to vote then they can add in an amendment that gives that Senators home state an extra blah-blah amount of money...so that Senator who hated the bill, stops and says, okay I need a new highway or airport or what ever.

Our Government is a bunch of corrupt cronies. They work about 10-15 years in order to accumulate an average of 20 million dollars. The normal mid-class person works about 25-30 years in order to gain a mere 300,000. Of course the average person would not get repaid for hotels and travel and planes and trains and blah blah blah. It will never happen now, but it would be great if the elected officials, in any office, could only make as much as the average person that they represent. LOL

I'm pretty sure that's impossible. Her head is so far up her a$$, she'll never be able to get it out to read anything.

'Tan Mom' on Dr. Drew..holy cow. I want to read a transcript without the behaviors, because they are hard to ignore. She has 3 metal plates from being beaten nearly to death..had to choose her life or the baby, but both lived. She was kidnapped twice, and once the man had dug an underground den to keep her in, eventually found in a massive search. She was 'too smart to get raped', and got herself out of these situations. Uses no drugs or alcohol, then says alcohol is a drug BUT.. lol. She is all over the place. Video of her falling over after a drink, but she never drinks..and she is hawking a book. Of course!

Interesting to me she said, "the fog of controversy."

And Hillary just blamed the confusion over the contradictory Benghazi statements on the "fog of war." (The expression Fog of war has an interesting background for those who care to look it up - and it's hardly appicable here.)

Interesting choice of words from an administration that promised us transparency.

Whole lotta foggin' goin' on.

We are the ones getting fogged.

I am tired of it. They can go fog themselves from now on.

All your foggin' made me laugh, thanks!!

The scary thing is, someone keeps voting for her.

Hobnob said...

It's not me, i don't vote for any of them

I know! How can that be?

Nicole said...

We read the bill? She didn't read the bill. She would've said "I." If she actually would've read it, she'd be telling everybody! I know I'd be shouting it from the rooftops!

Nicole said...

Oh, and Obama referred to himself as President in the past tense. (Sorry I can't link from my phone.) He said "when I was President." Pretty telling I think.
