Pelosi Gets The Jail Question!(Jail time or Pelosi-care, the right to choose)
youtube/ChannelOfLiberty's ^ | November 13, 2009 | sickoflibs

Posted on 11/13/2009 7:57:18 PM PST by sickoflibs

Question : “Madam Speaker, Do you feel like it’s fair to send people to jail for not buying health insurance?” Pelosi : “ The point is we want to make sure that everyone has access to health care. For a long time those that haven’t had health care were provided it ( ??? ) have placed the burden on others. Everybody is paying the price for uncompensated care in a hospital. This is to say we all have to do our part (except those getting it for free) and that is the point of the bill.” Question: “But Madam Speaker I am trying to understand. If you don’t buy health insurance you are going to jail?” Pelosi :”I think the legislation is very clear in this respect…”

I love Nancy Pelosi

Quote: " Every month we dont have an economic recovery package 500 Million Americans will lose their jobs, I dont think we can go fast enough (on the package) to stop that"
Quote: "Yes, I am saying the CIA was misleading the congress and at the same time the Bush administration was misleading the congress (on Interrogation) ..."
Quote:"I would say that, as an ardent practicing Catholic, this is an issue that I have studied for a long time, and what I know is, over the centuries, the Doctors of the Church have not been able to make that definition.(where life begins)..The point is, that it shouldn't have an impact on the woman's right to choose,"
Question : "How is family Planning services economic stimulus?" Quote:" Family planning services reduce costs. The states are in terrible fiscal crisis now .. one of the initiatives you mentioned contraceptive services will reduce costs to the state, and to the federal government."

If you love listening to Speaker Nancy Pelosi explain things unscripted. If you wonder how the democrats (and the country) could pick such a clueless San Francisco liberal to run the house of representatives second in line to be president (that would be fun!) , If you wonder how Pelosi got to a position where she can hide in China from her CIA Interrogation quotes. Then you love Nancy Pelosi too.

I just can't for the life of me see how forcing people to buy health insurance (and jailing those who don't) will ever get past SCOTUS.

Then again, who ever thought Kelo would become the law of the land?

This bag of bloated botox who gets her clothes from a hillary clinton yard sale needs to back up and rethink her position on this jail thing.

Debtor's prison was supposed to have been outlawed centuries ago, and this is about debt, not about non-compliance. The only reason she wants you to comply is to get the money. What? You think she cares about your health? ROTFLMAO.

But, if it takes locking up a few million of us to drive the point home to her, then good luck.

She and all her co-conspirators are the ones who belong in Jail. This is a Direct attack upon the sovereignty of every American, The very idea that not buying “insurance” for being alive, is an out and out act of TREASON against every single American.

Kelo needs to be rehashed by the SCOTUS. Kelo homeowners lost their homes/lands after the city seized it to help Pfizer to expand their R&D lab. This was supposd to bring in highter tax revenues and higher income residents. Guess what, with the severe recession, Pfizer decided to opt out of the expansion deal. On top of that Pfizer plans to close their existing R&D Lab and move the personnel to another facility. Now Kelo is left holding empty lots.

An old, old standard of Western law. A maxim of law that has been accepted by all the great legal minds of this and previous centuries:

An act done against my will is not my act.

You can’t be “forced” to do something. That’s what liberty means. Liberty of actions and liberty of conscience.

For a long time those that haven’t had health care were provided it ( ??? ) have placed the burden on others. Everybody is paying the price for uncompensated care in a hospital...the way to stop the problem of people without insurance receiving free care in hospitals is to end the insane requirement that hospitals must treat all comers who don't have insurance for free - a few well publicized instances of people going into massive debt, or even gasp dying, because they were turned away from care they couldn't afford upfront should put a bit of fear and a sense of responsibility into the general populace......

That must be why LIBs have to rely on emotions, rather than facts. Look at the great thinkers on the left - 0bambi, Biden, Pelosi, Reid, Schumer, Grayson, the media - I ask you is there a single a coherent thought in the bunch?

Right! And sending people to jail for not buying insurance is also really a stupid lie—it costs MORE to maintain someone in jail than to give care in an emergency room and while they are in jail, the government has to give the free medical care. What Pelosi is really describing is a concentration camp. !!!

Yep. I knew when Obama won, he would try to destroy our economy, and hand the wealth over to the useless, and the trade unions. He didn’t waste any time either. America was too busy to spend 2 hours on their PC researching this wretch. No we all have to pay for it.

And some people might ask “why do they hate us so, why do they hate the middle class with such a passionate and everlasting hatred?”

There are many reasons and I’ve posted my own theories over the years but it now gets down to this:

When two guys are at your front door in the middle of the night and one is smashing the lock with a heavy crowbar and the other is standing nervously next to him with a big-a$$ shotgun you don’t ask yourself “why do they disrespect my home and my property so much?”.

No. You don’t ask that. You don’t try to understand their “reasons”.

You defend yourself.

And same with the psychopaths who now rule us from on high. It’s long past time trying to figure out why they want to destroy us.

It’s now time to play defense. Smart defense.

Smart defense or death. Those are our ACTUAL “public options”.

The most stupid part of this proposal is she is talking about it at a time when everyone is losing their jobs. The last thing anyone is thinking of buying is health care when they are trying to stay in their homes and keep food on the table.

Is the health care plan consitutional? More specifically, where in the constitution does the Congress get the power to mandate citizens buy health care or be fined or go to jail?

The answer you get to this question:

Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
Reporter: “Yes, I am.”
Pelosi: “Next question.”

RE :”I know quite a few extremely liberal Dems, but not a single one who claims to like Pelosi. They all hate her because she makes them look stupid...a thousand times more so than the Socialist Bush made us look less than brilliant.”(genetic homophobe )

You hit it on the mark! That is why I love Nancy Pelosi.

Back the last four years when no one know who she was, she successfully kept the attention on GWB who was as popular as a child molester. This included 2007-08 when she was speaker. Low polls on congress were STILL against republicans when she was Speaker those two years as she was focusing on Bush-Cheney with the MSM.

But now with GWB gone and McCain lost there are few places for the spotlight to shine on the R side. The MSM loves BoB (aka Zero) too much to report on him, but Nancy Pelosi is too tempting of a target even for them to ignore. So keep her on TV, keep the limelight on her and we may just enjoy this ride a bit, while democrats suffer (like we did.) In fact I am thinking we may want to keep her as Speaker in 2011 as a continued target with a tiny ungovernable majority lets say 1 or 2 seats.

Ironically Pelosi who made her (impressive) success using GWB/Cheney, has taken his place being seen as the 'incompetent demon running Washington'.

RE “ Is the health care plan consitutional? More specifically, where in the constitution does the Congress get the power to mandate citizens buy health care or be fined or go to jail?

This is something Obama ran against in the primary with Hillary because it's very unpopular. Ask Pelosi this, “Are the uninsured victims of those greedy insurance companies who need help as you claim or are they really the victimizer deadbeats that deserve jail time as you claim? “ ....(I love it.)

As to the constitutional question, that Pandoras box was opened when the federal government mandated hospitals provide uncompensated care (including to illegals) with the same legal liability protections we get when we pay our bills. They can sue for malpractice for free care.

That is in fact the point she makes. You will notice that republicans would not go near this issue under Bush. One blind spot many elected republicans have is... see my tagline.

FOX NEWS' JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO SAID IT BEST Free people enjoy the right to use nullification as a protective measure...... to have state legislatures act to prevent federal domination.

WORKS LIKE THIS To get your support, the candidate must take a stand to use state govt to nullify the federal govt's unconstitutional overreaching into our lives. Demand candidates nullify ObamaCare.

HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE A legacy of USSC Justice Taney's Dred Scott judicial activism, was that the ruling would lay the groundwork for the rights of states to nullify----to make null; to invalidate; to counteract the force or effectiveness of unconstitutional laws.

Nullification in U.S. history, is a doctrine expounded by the advocates of states' rights. It held that states have the right to declare null and void any federal law that they deem unconstitutional.

Nullification is also a fundamental state right to prevent federal domination. States enjoyed the right to use nullification as a protective measure against unconstitutional federal laws by making them ineffective against their citizens.

For example, Montana nullified federal gun laws.

After Dred Scott, nullification had become a states' right tradition, and both the North and the South exercised it prior to 1861
