“ Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrat in the Republican-controlled House, dismissed growing concerns that the political damage from the botched implementation of the healthcare act could harm her party’s hopes of taking over the majority in next year’s midterm congressional elections. Those chances had grown in the wake of last month’s government shutdown, which most Americans blamed on congressional Republicans.
But the political winds shifted sharply against Democrats in recent weeks as the Obama administration grappled with massive problems in signing up people on the new healthcare exchanges designed to expand medical coverage to millions of Americans. The troubles were further compounded when insurers began cancelling existing plans that were substandard under the healthcare act, contradicting claims by Mr Obama and many Democrats that people could keep their plans if they liked them.”
We would like to know if Ms Pelosi has read the bill yet .
Some of her colleagues obviously have . Below are some links that will give the reader some idea of the daunting task M Pelosi faces in trying to get her Democratic compatriots to “Stand Tall” on their “signature legislation” . Good luck Nancy .

Pelosi Taken Apart By David Gregory On False Obamacare Promises
We have to give David Gregory some small measure of credit today . He took a very hard line on the “if you like it , you can keep it” meme that the Dem’s have been singing from the rooftops for the past three years and pushed , pulled and prodded Nancy Pelosi in an effort to get her to own up to the lie , all to no avail . Ms Pelosi was the obstinate denier to the end , employing every verbal contortion imaginable … she comes off as nothing more than a little Goebbels … ” if I just keep repeating it long enough maybe someone will believe me” . What arrogance , what hypocrisy .
One was left with the impression that even Gregory wanted to reach across the table , grab the little fabricator by the throat and call her a liar . We know that was how we felt .
“If Democrats were to take control of the House of Representatives after the November elections, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her party would “amend the [U.S.] Constitution” on the “very first day” to overturn the Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” decision.
President Obama said he supports a constitutional amendment to reverse the ruling and keep undisclosed corporate contributions out of elections.
“On the very first day we would have a jobs bill. We would have a jobs bill, much of it would contain what President Obama has in the American Jobs Act. It would be as simple as A-B-C. Make it in America. Build America’s infrastructure. See developed growth from the community. And that means education of our children, the police and fire safety of our neighborhoods, that sense of community and fairness,” Pelosi said during her weekly press briefing Thursday on Capitol Hill.”

“AMERICA’S NATIONAL SECURITY TAKES A BACK SEAT TO OBAMA’S POLITICAL SURVIVAL”
“Even in the face of a plea from Nancy Pelosi,President Obama insisted on subordinating the
defense needs of the United States to his reelection efforts. This is an under-reported lesson from Glenn Thrush’s new e-book, Obama’s Last Stand . According to Thrush:
“In mid-2012, the House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, requested a sit-down to ask Obama to reconsider the billions of defense cuts that would kick in automatically as part of the 2011 budget deal. The cuts included in ‘the sequester,’ she argued, would hurt Democratic House members with major defense contractors in their
districts. They were asking for an
alternative state of cuts, or any kind of plan that would keep local employers – and, by implication, local contributors – happy.”
Note that Pelosi’s concern was keeping local financial contributors happy. If she was concerned about the impact of sequestration on
our armed services and national security, she did not, according to Thrush’s account, make this
her pitch to President Obama. “
“Documents and a whistle-blower affidavit obtained by The Daily Caller charge that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Illinois Democratic Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., and Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr., participated in an unethical — and possibly illegal — effort to force 76 employees of an Illinois state agency to engage in political activity
on the taxpayers’ dime.”
WASHINGTON (AP) –
” House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi credited the Supreme Court’s upholding of Obamacare’s individual mandate to the late Democrat Senator Ted Kennedy’s
angelic intervention, saying , “I knew that when he left us he would go to heaven and help pass the bill.” Pelosi then encouraged people to “use whatever wacky religious beliefs they had” to help get President Obama reelected.”
