House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi brushed off questions about coming to Massachusetts Friday to appear alongside Rep. John Tierney even though he is the target of an ethics investigation. Pelosi made an appearance with Tierney, who represents the state’s 6th Congressional District, at a forum on economic issues for women in Beverly.
“Well, we have cleaned up Washington. We did. And now it has lapsed, but that’s not the point,” Pelosi said. “I want to go to your question. I’m here to stand with John Tierney and thank him for what he has done for our women’s economic agenda.”
What world does Pelosi live in? You talk about someone being out of touch with reality, that is her. She flies coast to coast each week, costing tax payers millions; yet, she speaks of austerity. She believes that she is the great uniter, but instead polarizes the parties. She touts all these remarkable deeds she has accomplished, yet she has done less than squat to help America. Remember, she the one who said, "Pass it to see what's in it". When I think of what's wrong with America, I think of her. Here are a couple of my favorite quotes of her's:
1. No Spending Problem Here
"It is almost a false argument to say we have a spending problem. We have a budget deficit problem that we have to address."
2. Unemployment Creates Jobs
"[Unemployment benefits] creates jobs faster than almost any other initiative you can name." Pelosi also said it has the "double benefit" of helping those who lost their jobs and acting as a "job creator" on the side.
3. Health Independence?
“This week marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. It captures the spirit of our founders. The spirit they wrote in the Declaration of Independence."
4. Obamacare Allows People to Quit Their Day-Jobs
"Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or, eh, a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance, or that people could start a business and be entrepreneurial and take risk but not [be] job-locked because a child has asthma or someone in the family is bipolar. You name it. Any condition is job-blocking."
5. Obamacare is Slashing Deficits
"Many of the initiatives that he passed are what are coming to bear now -- including the Affordable Care Act," Pelosi said. "The Affordable Care Act is bringing the cost of health care in our country down in both the public and private sector, and that is what is largely responsible for the deficit coming down." The Affordable Care Act is already three times original cost estimates at $2.7 trillion over ten years and will add $6.2 trillion to the long-term debt.
Plus, don't forget that Pelosi believes abortion is sacred because of her Catholic Religion. Maybe she's attending mass with Obama at Reverend White's church? The bottom line is that the democrats have been hijacked by lunatics like Pelosi and are leading America down the path to destruction. With the thought processes like the examples given, no wonder why our country is doing so poorly.
