Skip to comments.Pelosi Disavows Responsibility for Obamacare Failures
Posted on 02/02/2014 10:20:36 AM PST by John Semmens
In an appearance on The Daily Show, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) insisted that none of the problems of the Affordable Care Act are my fault. The bill we passed was over 2800 pages. I didnt have time, no one had time to carefully read all of its provisions to see if there might be any glitches.
Beyond this there is always the problem of bureaucratic incompetence, Pelosi continued. Time after time we have passed legislation aimed at helping peopleveterans benefits, medicare, medicaid, and now universal health insuranceonly to see treatments bungled, services denied, and money wasted. Its criminal.
The shows host, Jon Stewart, seemed perplexed by the Minority Leaders stance. With a repetition of the same kinds of problems in program after program when does learning from experience set in? he asked.
Thats a good question, Pelosi acknowledged. But youre asking the wrong person. Im no policy analyst. Its the job of Congress to express the aspirations of the people by enacting laws that address their hopes and dreams. We trust the experts to make these laws work. If they cant do that I guess there is no hope and the dream turns into a nightmare. The one thing we must not let happen is to give in to the naysayers who would exploit this failure to divert us from our course.

Scary is that there really isn’t much satire here...LOL
Nutsy Nancy dumb enough to actually express this
I know this is satire, from one of the best satirists, but allow me to translate what Pelosi really said, “When I lie to get legislation passed, which is all the time, I cannot be held responsible for what the legislation actually does, because, well, I lied.”
She’s a dumb-o-crat and lying is normal.for them.
True, not an analyst. Just plain stupid and corrupt.
“We’ve got to pass it to find out what’s in it”.
How can she possibly be held accountable for it?
You have to pass the bill to see how criminal Nancy really it.

The old bag tap dancing like Bo Jangles
The dry hag is a criminal. She should be arrested, tried and (if convicted) imprisoned for the remainder of her misused life.
