    Pelosi: Pass HC bill to find out what's in it

    Note to mods:

    I think it should be considered "breaking news" that the Speaker of the House actually wants people to pass a bill in order to find out what's in it. But after three pages of Google search results, I still can't find an MSM news source that covers this ridiculous comment. So I hope that by providing the actual transcript from her website as well as thefoxnation as sources, together they might constitute an actual news article in place of one that doesn't appear to exist, in keeping with the spirit of intent behind the BN rules. Thanks for understanding.

Health insurance reform is about jobs. This legislation alone will create 4 million jobs, about 400,000 jobs very soon.

    Pelosi (aka Pelousy) has lost her marbles and needs to be removed from office immediately.

    Since when have congressmen actually read the bills they are passing? Those things are of ludicrous size these days.

    Re: Pelosi: Pass HC bill to find out what's in it

    it's an important thread, thank you for posting it

    i have great respect for your abilities

    it shows:

    1. she's out of her mind

    2. she's really stupid

    3. she doesn't really think anyone is listening to her

    4. she thinks all america is like san francisco

    5. she's desperate

    6. people are not gonna like her, y'know, personally, she's unlikable

    7. she has no respect for the people of america who will find out what's in the bill once it's passed

    8. she has no respect for her membership who won't find out what's in the bill til after it's passed

    9. she's losing, winners never sound like this, losers always do

    10. health care's dead

    THE SENATE PARLIAMENTARIAN RULED TODAY THAT OBAMA MUST FIRST SIGN INTO LAW A HOUSE-PASSED SENATE BILL BEFORE RECONCILIATION MAY BEGIN

    PARTY LEADERSHIP LATER DECLARED THEY'VE GIVEN UP ON TRYING TO WIN OVER STUPAK DEMS, whom jay cost at rcp, the best head counter available, has between 19 and 28

    it's all on rcp, realclearpolitics

    thanks for the fun post, cliff

    Oh hey another thread on this.

    Poorly worded, but if you actually think Pelosi is proposing we pass a bill without reading it, you're... delusional.

    Context. What she's talking about is the fact that the American people have no idea what's in the bill because Republicans are lying about it constantly.

    Re: Pelosi: Pass HC bill to find out what's in it

    BOTH BILLS feature a half T cuts to m and m

    BOTH impose mandates on individuals to buy for themselves that which they can't afford, with fines and threats of jail time for the obstinately nonconformist

    BOTH impose 200B of unfunded mandates on already bankrupt states in the form of massive expansions of medicaid

    BOTH rely on accounting along the lines of 10 years of taxes versus 6 of benefits

    BOTH houses are heavily dependent on a doc fix, about a quarter T, off budget

    the house taxes the rich, the senate goes after cadillacs

    the house has stupak, harry don't

    BOTH bills are just loaded with taxes on small and large biz, payroll, targeted industries

    not lies

    but therein lies the EXTIRPATION of this bill, a monstrosity it was

    Even if Republicans are lying about it, passing bills before knowing what's in them is NOT the solution to that or any other problem this nation has ever faced. Besides, it's the Democrats' fault if they can't address these "lies" and explain their own bill to the people.

    If she is assuming we do not know whats in the bill then why would we want something we do not know whats in it to pass? Sign this contract first and then you'll find out what it means and how you are screwed.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
