Skip to comments.Pelosi: Lawmakers Should Sacrifice Jobs for Health Care
Posted on 02/28/2010 7:59:13 AM PST by EagleUSA
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.
Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week." "We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people."
It took courage for Congress to pass Social Security and Medicare, which eventually became highly popular, she said, "and many of the same forces that were at work decades ago are at work again against this bill."
It's unclear whether Pelosi's remarks will embolden or chill dozens of moderate House Democrats who face withering criticisms of the health care proposal in visits with constituents and in national polls. Republican lawmaker unanimously oppose the health care proposals, and many GOP strategists believe voters will turn against Democrats in the November elections.

It’s really easy for someone from a safe district to call on her colleagues to show some “backbone”.
Deliberately destructive Kamikaze Politics...
They are saboteurs...
Both are busting the budget because they were setup as pyramid schemes.
If Botox Pelosi would be willing to resign immediately after passage of death care I think we may be able to a few GOP votes. If its for the good of the people she should have no problem with it.
It’s easy for her to say to others give up your career when her district is commie heaven.
“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers,”
This is stretch admitting that the people do NOT WANT government run health care.
YOU first, Nanzi.
Does this mean SHE will resign as soon as Dingy Harry passes BOCare with the NUCLEAR OPTION? Or is she just wanting others to make the “sacrifice” for the cause? Come on Nasty! Lead by example for Pete’s sake!!!
Frau Pelosi is truly deranged and possesed.
You first stretch
Like lemmings over a cliff ....
Social Security, which became a highly popular ponzi scheme for congress to fund their takeover of the private American enterprise, leaving a pile of IOU’s for future generations to lament the stupidity of “the greatest generation”.
You first Nanzi.
Lose your possible lifetime job as an elected leech and fall on the sword for mac daddy.
Hey nancy, f-you.
