Pelosi: Never mind the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence authorizes Obamacare
Hot Air ^ | March 22, 2012 | TINA KORBE

OK, so Nancy Pelosi doesn’t actually say “Never mind the Constitution” in this clip, but she practically has before and she might as well have this time, too. While I firmly believe that the Founding documents are best understood in conjunction with each other (as Rick Santorum says, “If the Constitution is the “how” of America, the Declaration of Independence is the “why”), the Constitution is far more relevant to the authorization of Obamacare than, er, the Declaration of Independence, which is not a blueprint for government but a philosophical statement on the origin and nature of the authority to form a new government in the first place.

That’s all irrelevant, though, because the Declaration of Independence doesn’t provide support for Obamacare in the way Nancy Pelosi suggests anyway. Here she is, Ms. Obamacare:

Obamacare was inspired by a sentence in the Declaration of Independence:

"He has erected a Multitude of new Offices, and sent hither Swarms of Officers to harrass our People, and eat out the Substance."

That is hilarious.

The Declaration of Independence purpose is to overthrough a tyrannical government.

She is right. Time to use it again (by voting of course).

If Nancy was walking up a street dressed like a bag lady pushing a shopping cart and saying the same things she says at news conferences ,she would be locked up for her own protection

You all - I found it, here it is!!

“. . . whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

If this were a SNL script of yore, one would hear the comment, shut up Nancy, you ignorant slut.

How many times have we been told by democrats the Declaration of Independence is NOT the Constitution, when we’ve cited correct passages for positions we take on issues?

PATENT BULLSHIT...as usual.

Isn't there some prohabition against insane people serving in congress? There certainly should be.

SNL is just a democrat front group posing as ‘comedy’.

I can’t even watch it anymore, besides more than an hour of it being not funny. Can’t listen to the “bands” they have on there now either.

Every opening skit is set aside to hammer whatever Republican they want to target that week. It’s been like this for a long time. Long gone are any relevant skits of Obama at all. They are in total campaign mode for him by doing the negative work. You gotta realize some people who don’t pay attention to politics form an impression of people based on what they see SNL portraying them. Ever since Chevy Chase that’s what they’ve been doing. At least around election time. Once the democrat’s in office then they can do some mildly embarassing skits on them, but not until they get elected and the election cycle is over.

I can think of something else it really authorizes which wouldn't be so nice for Pelosi and her crew.

In more ways than one, she’s the example of genius in American leadership now. Have fun. Enjoy the slide. Smaller government ahead...after the great crash.

Uh-oh, somebody told Pelosi about the Declaration of Independence. She'd never heard of it before today.

She probably found this quote in it:
"He has attempted to deny our health insurance coverage by his government and render it null and void."

I'm quoting from memory, but I'm sure it's in there somewhere.

Oh, WTF! If she represented anyone but the crowd of lunatics who elected her, she’d be laughed out of office-the woman is certifiable.

Pelosi obviously hasn't read the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence anymore than she read the 2,000+ pages of the Obamacare bill. She particularly missed one of the grievances made against King George in the Declaration:

"He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. "

That pretty well sums up Obamacare.

I’ve heard it said that Sen Maria Cantwell is the dumbest person in Congress. Everytime I hear Pelosi open her yap, I know that’s not true.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Yeah, I guess that explains Miss Nancy’s uncompromising devotion to the Right to Life.

(But enough of sarcasm for now.)

She read it, but her comprehension failed. She thought it was a list of good things King George did.

It obviously is not the Constitution but it is now part of the United States legal code. We can rely on it as we do all the other laws.

No need to do so-for every Marco Rubio or Susanna Martinez who are of hispanic ancestry like me, there are scores of others-Becerra comes to mind, because he is such an obnoxious loon-who wants us to believe that illegals are just like we are-not!
