Nancy Pelosi says she read Obamacare bill
Posted By: Debra J. Saunders | Oct 11 at 11:01 am

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came to the Chronicle for an editorial board meeting Wednesday. I used the opportunity to ask Pelosi about her most famous and quoted statement from 2010. On March 9, 2010, Pelosi said of the Affordable Care Act, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”

What did you mean by that? I asked.

Pelosi said that the quote “was taken out of context” and it is most often quoted “by the far right.”

Yeah she read a page, so that allows her to say she read it.

Out of context?

It isn't possible to make up something bizarre enough to preclude it being a Pelosi quote.

Do you mean she READ the #!&% thing and STILL voted for it? She’s even more evil, or more stupid, than I thought!

My personal opinion is that ol’ Nan is just being herself; She never did read it, and is, per usual, lying her a$$ off!

I believe the vacuous hag meant she read the title.

Not true -- the only context is, she's a single party state advocate and political hack who wants the gov't boot on all our necks.

I like the part where Hawkeye and Uncas, after being injured in Battle with Montcalm and the Hurons have their wounds treated for free at Fort Albany using native America medicines made from plant bark and herbal roots. Too bad they died of tetanus. But is was free. Meanwhile the Pelosi tribe sat out the war lounging on the Potomac and when anyone of them fell ill, they were treated by the King's royal physicians at Fort Walter Reed.

Gotta give her 4 Pinnochios (SP?) on that one. Heck, I can almost see her nose growing from Reno looking southwest.

In this day and age they can no longer just deny that they said something because it’s too easy to pull up a video proving they said it.

Their new favorite statement is “it was taken out of context”. They know the American people have a short attention span.

So, it only took four years for Nancy Pelosi to read the ObamaCare bill. Her lips must be very tired.

Here is a snippet of the actual bill, taken at random. You can’t just read it, you have to take apart and reassemble just about all current US law. Then you have to read what results. No one on earth can tell you how many pages that is. PPACA is the instruction manual to reassemble American society from the ground up. Pelosi cannot manage to read the instructions to assemble a bicycle.

Subtitle C—Quality Health Insurance
Coverage for All Americans
PART I—HEALTH INSURANCE MARKET
REFORMS
SEC. 1201. AMENDMENT TO THE PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE ACT.
Part A of title XXVII of the Public Health Service Act (42

OR OTHER DISCRIMINATION BASED ON HEALTH STATUS.
‘‘(a) IN GENERAL.—A group health plan and a health insurance
issuer offering group or individual health insurance coverage may
not impose any preexisting condition exclusion with respect to such
plan or coverage.’’; and
(B) by transferring such section (as amended by subparagraph
(A)) so as to appear after the section 2703 added by

Nancy Pelosi’s botoxed and surgically rearranged face could not stand the strain of having to mouth all of those words as she reads the bill outloud.

Besides, I’m sure there weren’t enough pictures in the bill to make her happy.

I think she said, “we” read it. I do not think she said “I” read it.

Hm...so there were a bunch of people sitting at Starbucks reading this mind-numbing travesty? Or did one person read one page, another read another page...just so she could say “we” read it?

She can’t even read her own name tag. She keeps complaining it’s upside down.

“She is a lying sack of monkey nuts.”

Nah. She’s a brilliant, intellectual, highly-intelligent,
Progressive genius who knows all, sees all, can read thousands of pages of legalese in one sitting, digest it all and be able to answer questions and cite word for word each passage and what it means.

See? Ya know?

/sarcasm/

(there is now cosmic, Progressive psychosis on G-d’s beautiful earth.)

IMHO

I couldn’t stomach getting that close to her. I’d gag and vomit. It’s hard enough to keep my food down just thinking about the old hag.
