Skip to comments.(Exempt) Pelosi on Obamacare: It Will Cost More to Repeal It
Posted on 05/18/2013 4:22:53 AM PDT by Libloather
In an email to supporters of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi encouraged readers to sign a petition to "declare your support" for Obamacare ahead of the House plan to hold a vote on repealing the unpopular health care law. The email, which had the subject line "this has gotten out of control,"claims that the vote to repeal is "worthless," particularly because "a real repeal would actually COST money rather than save it."
Read the whole email from Pelosi below:

JUST LIKE MOSLEMS as she promised them.
This provides a wonderful justification for spending more money every year on government projects that don't work and never will work.
This is our "brave new world"...
Pelosi told a half-truth, which is a whole lot more honest than she usually gets.
Repeal would "cost" the federal government money in the first year because they would not collect the ObamaCare taxes. It would save the American people a huge amount because we would not have to pay for the extra layers of bureaucracy to have IRS-quality service from our doctor's office. Since she sees things from the government perspective rather than from the perspective of free individuals, she sees any cut in the fraction of our money that she gets to spend as a cost.
Yes. Because when you spend less, you actually spend more.
Similarly, with unemployment payments, which actually generate revenue.
It makes perfect sense, if you have a screw loose.
Lying whore... and I get to call her that in two threads in a row!
How does it cost more to stop overspending? This must be very nuanced. I take a product, decrease it’s value, raise it’s price and suddenly you are saving money? Hell I need to go back and study economics again. Something must have changed.
It will cost more if I stop smoking crack.
People have died in wars to regain lost freedom.
What’s a few dollars to get rid of this?
In other words, now that we read what’s in it we can’t afford it and our premiums will increase, we can’t keep the doctor’s we like, but hey if we undoe it then the dem party will look like the biggest bunch of tyrants ever. So in the name of protecting the party, let’s bankrupt America and unleash the death panels.
That would be money well spent. If they recycled all the paper used to print the law and associated regulations we might break even. /s
Just out curiosity, where does is say that muslims are exempt? No one believes when I bring it up.
repealed for the 37th time
In practical terms, the only real success of Obamacare is that it had to destroy both Medicare and Medicaid. This being said, the Republicans had better be weaving together a serious federal health care bill as a stopgap measure, because when Obamacare dies, its festering remains are going to be catastrophic.
The best bet would be to start by turning Medicaid into block grants to the states, with the provision that if states use that money for other things, trying to drive the poor out of their state, then they will get their Medicaid money slashed the following year.
(The block grant idea should be applied to many other federal programs as well, as a baseline agreement that can only be altered with the approval of both each state and the feds.)
Medicare is the harder nut to crack, so the best bet is to offer big tax cuts for those who don’t use either Social Security or Medicare *or* routine care health insurance.
That is, if you pay your own way, you get a serious tax cut, worth more than SS and Medicare. On the plus side, doctors that refuse Medicare, Medicaid and insurance have discovered they can charge 50% less because their expenses are so much less.
This woman’s vacuousness never ceases to amaze the honest and reasonably intelligent. Try to magine the intellectual capacity of her supporters!
Could she actually be as stupid as she appears to be? or is this a shtick she has affected to hoodwink stupid voters?
I don’t care what it might cost......defund it now! Get rid of all those IRS employees!!
This is good. That she even mentioned the word “repeal” means the possibility is real and the libs are afraid.
ACA needs to be repealed so we can find out what the actual cost would be. (using Pelosi logic).
