Skip to comments.Pelosi: Proud of Democrats for Being Proud of ACA
Posted on 03/15/2014 11:04:31 AM PDT by Olog-hai
No, absolutely not, Democrats should not shy away from supporting the Affordable Care Act, even though Democrat Alex Sink lost the special congressional election in Florida on Tuesday, says House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Sinks Republican opponent, David Jolly, campaigned against Obamacare, but thats not a winning strategy for Republicans, Pelosi told a news conference Thursday.

Democrats sure love “Pride.” Guess they’ve never heard what it goeth before.
Pelosi is a fool. She is also a corrupt, lying and incompetent politician. A disgrace to America.
I hope all the Dems take her advice.
Were all proud of this lunatic for embracing obamacare while simultaneously embracing her exemption. A woman of the people.
American voters finally wise to the BIG CON that is the Affordable [sic] Care [sic] Act.
One senses a hint of desperation in Ms. Pelosi's gratuitous (and alleged) "pride".
She truly lives trans-dimensionally, because her dimension definitely bears no relationship to ours.
I get the distinct impression that you don’t care a lot for Ms Pelosi ..
She should be encouraged to spread that message to other Democrats.
This not just spin. Pelosi displays a trait universal to leftist and that is creating an alternative reality
I know it is San Francisco, but really! Isn't there someone better? She is another person who believes it is HER God given right to govern the rest of us poor slobs.
If Dems really wanted to do something "for the American people", they could start by shoring up the military--my 20 year old marine grandson, in already 2 years, gets a HUGE/sarc pay of 1600 or so per month. They then charge him $300 per month for mess privileges--which he must pay, then give him duty that keeps him from making mess hall many days. When he goes out in the field, they give him a list of must haves and require him to purchase the items. just one of the items last time was a $80 flashlight. He is going for survival tng. soon and has a list totaling almost $300. The military used to issue this stuff. Some/many of his friends who are married are on food stamps.
A daughter is working in Medicaid and is so ill paid (with a degree and over a dozen yrs experience), actually can't pay all her bills and is as bad or worse off than many of her clients. ---but there is "the American peoples' Fran Nan spouting off about all the Dems are doing for "the American people."--She DOESN'T KNOW ANY.
La-la-la La-la-la life is wonderful in delusion world La-la-la La-la-la sunshine and lollipops for everyone yeaaaa!!!
Gee, you would think if she loved ACA so much she would call it OBAMACARE since its named after HIM..Pukelosi was calling it Obamacare for years, now changes the name to ACA..Dems know they are done behind the scenes they are crapping their little Commie pants
Heehee Pelositown grape kool-aid.
That picture is great.
This will spit the dem party to the point where Obama will be impeached and removed.
She lies all the time.
What this means is she knows running against Obamacare IS a winning issue for Republicans. Most people are seeing just how awful their choices are. Pelosi’s just mantra’ing here hoping some people buy it.
Really Nancy. How can you tell with so many Democrats running away from it this election year? Talk about someone devoid of reality, but then the voters in her district are as dumb and clueless as she is.
How nice. Awesome picture of the All American Moron Society with their chief morons Reid and Pelosi rallying the troops.
And the GOPe will listen to her.
< shakes head>
-—This will spit the dem party to the point where Obama will be impeached and removed.——
If you really believe that, you are duslonial as Pelosi....
That is why I am in favor of just calling it DemocratCare.
The Dems are using ACA instead of Obamacare. Tells you a lot.
State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress. (emphases added) Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.So since the states have never delegated to the feds, via the Constitution, the specific power to regulate, tax and spend for public healthcare purposes, such power required to establish
And if the states had chosen to ratify such an amendment then Congress would have had the constitutional authority that it needs to establish
Obamacare Democratcare and Nancy Pelosi would have been a hero.
But wait! What's this?
It seems that former Representative Jessie Jackson Jr. had been proposing a resolution for Congress to propose a healthcare amendment to the Constitution to the states long before Pelosi had become Speaker.
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States regarding the right of citizens of the United States to health care of equal high quality. H. J. Res. 30.
Evidently Pelosi and her Democratic majority representatives had wrongly ignored proposing a required healthcare amendment to the Constitution to the states before irresponsibly ramming
Obamacare Democratcare through the HoR.
So Shame on you Nancy, other Democratic politicians and activist justices, for ignoring your oaths to protect and defend the Constitution!
And shame on you RINOs and Obama guard dog Fx News for not bringing this Democratic constitutional scandal to peoples' attention.
Finally, patriots please bear the following in mind for the 2014 and 2016 elections, something that the patriots should have started doing in 2010 elections. If patriots and former Obama supportecs can elect a 2/3 conservative majority to both Houses of Congress in 2014 then Congress will be positioned as follows.
Congress will have the power, under the Constitution's Clause 2 of Section 7 of Article I, to override presidential vetoes. This means that Congress controlled by a conservative supermajority will be able to repeal constitutionally indefensible
Obamacare Democratcare, for example, without Obama's signature.
Regarding Congress overriding presidential vetoes, note that Congress has exercised this power as recently as Bushes 41 & 43, and also Clinton.
She exempted herself and the rest of congress from obamacare.
She does not care about the peasants plight.
She must be off her meds again.
Inverted phsycology on Pelosi’s part, trying to whoop up the fever in the democrats. She can’t, however, hide the real feelings about ACA. Good try Nancy!
The Rats love HUAC, Hussein’s Un-Affordable Care act
