She’s right.

Any attempt to repeal will probably die in the Senate - even after the election.

They nailed us.

Except your serfdom and smile.

Nah... Secession is a stopgap.

Abolish the federal government. It's a worn-out experiment that doesn't work like it was intended.

Kick it to the curb and ignore it like an old toaster.

The Democrats think they can force the majority of Americans to obey a law that was shoved through by the minority.

This law will be revoked or the GOP is finished.

Minority leader Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats are happy to debate dismantling Obamacare, but repeal is unrealistic.

If the GOP can for once get off it's complacent establishment butt and realize that the American electorate opposes Obamacare, it really doesn't matter what Pelosi has to say - an articulate appeal to the public explaining what Obamacare really means and why it should be repealed and moderate Democrats will peel away from this thing. But that'd require a lot more vision, commitment to principle and intelligence than the Beltway GOP has shown in several decades.

It is fashionable to disrespect the Dingbat but it will do no good.

Like it or don’t, she is a powerful woman who carefully crafts a message for all the stupid American women..... and there are millions of them. Those stupid women think it is fashionable not to think but rather to vote however the Dingbat says. They buy Oil Of Olay for the same reason. They are told to.

The dingbat has one job....... deliver the voted of the hordes of stupid women.

Since we now know this is a tax, the House and pass legislation to kill it and the Senate, which should have enough Republicans, won't be able to block it.

Nancy Pelosi is the poster child for term limits.

She is steeped in corruption and is a narcissistic, arrogant grifter that has lived off taxpayers for most of her life. Useless career politician that believes she must be heard whenever she believes she has something noteworthy to say, which usually ends up sounding demented.

Nancy, please take your meds and exit stage left!

Because the Supreme courts declared it a tax Republicans only need a simple majority to get of the tax through reconciliation

I loath Pelosi. I think she needs to be deported to whatever commie country will accept her. That being said...she’s very cunning and effective politically.

After all, any politcian that says, “We’ll have to pass the bill to see what’s in it” with a straight face and none even say what the...??? has got to have some magic beans.

My fear...the GOP doesn’t have anyone as evil as she is to engineer a repeal.

I wonder if Pelosi’s accountants for her business holdings have explained to her how much Obamacare is going to cost her & her husband yet???

I still think the President has to sign it. If it's a reconciliation bill; then only 51 votes are needed in the Senate( or 50 + VP).

And those 'magic beans' are having to not worry about ridicule or reporting from the Media or nightly TV talk shows.

Not having a Free Media that reports both sides of a story will destroy almost any nation.

If they don't the Party will cease to exist.

No Republicans are going to support this as a massive tax increase.

We should have stronger conservatives in the Senate this time.

Romney has said he wants it repealed.

They have no choice, it is a massive tax increase and the GOP won't survive if they take power and let it stand.

“Patriots don’t surrender, regardless of how bad things look. That is how we founded this country, that is how we will get it back.

I don’t think we’ll ever get it back. A lot has changed since the founding, and God is pissed. If we’re going to act like Sodom and Gomorrah, He’ll treat us as He treated Sodom and Gomorrah.

Knowing how deeply my ancestors were entrenched in the early days of the the country, I was clinging on for dear life. Last week, I gave up. Tired of fighting and tired of hoping only to see hopes dashed. I’m glad we have no children who’ll have to experience dreadful days ahead.

Minority leader Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats are happy to debate dismantling Obamacare, but repeal is unrealistic.

This from the witch with the magic crystal ball who said about The Occupy Wall Street cruminals..."“God bless them for their spontaneity,” Pelosi told reporters. “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.”

We know how accurate she was about that!

Maybe she hasn't had time to figure out what "unrealistic" means.

And?

I’ve heard all kinds of tough talk coming from Republicans who buckle the minute the heat is on.

I am 40 years old. I never once, EVER thought I’d see any of the stuff our government is doing today.

The US Congress now openly talks about targeting individuals: from Rush Limbaugh to that guy who helped set up Facebook.

I never once, ever thought I would see terrorists who kill Americans (and want to kill more of us) and their sympathizers building monuments to themselves on US soil (like the Ground Zero Mosque.)

I never once, ever thought that I would see people who admit that they are in the country illegally marching through our streets demanding more from our government - and then watching our government fight tooth and nail to give them their demands.

I never once, ever thought that everything I own and everything I work for could be taken from me by my government just because they want it - that’s what the Supreme Court just did.

I never once, ever thought that the people who did the least in our society would end up getting the most. Then to have them turn around and scream that it’s not enough? And our government is fighting tooth and nail to give these people their demands? When I was growing up I was told the story of the little red hen who didn’t have to share her corn because no one helped her grow it. I was told ‘he who pays the piper gets to pick the tune.’

I never once, ever thought that I would be living in fear of what my government is doing. Ever morning I wake up and it’s a little more aggravating and invasive.

I have watched McConnell and Boehner talk tough and then give up when the fight got hard. Maybe Romney will fight - but I doubt it.
