    Nancy Pelosi Hoarding Obamacare Waivers. Should She Resign?

    Health Care Law | San Francisco | Nancy Pelosi | The Daily Caller


    Of the 204 new Obamacare waivers President Barack Obama’s administration approved in April, 38 are for fancy eateries, hip nightclubs and decadent hotels in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s Northern California district.
    If this is such a great thing, why is she collecting waivers for her district?

    The question I propose is should she resign?
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.

    Pelosi should resign just because.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    As long as San Franciscans like her, they will keep voting her in. Doesn't matter what everyone else thinks.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Any reason for Pelosi to resign is a good reason.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Don't think she should "resign" for something that "looks bad." I think that she should resign if she has done something illegal, or if San Franciscans (the people she serves) are unsatisfied with her performance.

    San Francisco shouldn't be allowed to punish America like that

    Eh, if Pelosi resigns another political extremist will be elected to replace her.

    Work, yard, house, and spring gardening --- in short RL is getting in the way. But it's relatively under control so I should be back on a little now. I did need a break though - was getting burned out.

    For that? No. In the land of Congressional wasteful spending, that's the equivalent of taking a longer shower or ordering bacon on your Whopper. If this was the biggest public sector mismanagement of funds, I'd be thrilled - for anyone on either side of the aisle.

    San Francisco is full of liberal idiots, but those liberal idiots enjoy the same right to vote as other Americans.
