Skip to comments.Pelosi: the Founding Fathers Would Totally Support Obamacare (Uh huh, right)(Insert Sarcasm)

Americas Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happinessvalues which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare.
Pelosi explained why the law is very sound policy during a press conference Friday:
To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.
This argument should be added to the montage of lies being promulgated by the Obama administration.
More than half of Americans oppose Obamacare and 56% claim the law is more about bolstering government control than it is about helping individuals get health care.
The millions kicked off their insurance certainly do not find the policy freeing, neither do millennials forced to pay for healthcare feel liberated.
Obamacare is precisely the type of overbearing government policy that the Founders would have fought against:
"It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood." - James MadisonPelosi really ought to know her history better. Perhaps this way she could help protect rather than destroy the values for which the Founders fought.
"They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security." - Benjamin Franklin
"I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that 'all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.' To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition." - Thomas Jefferson
Maybe the founding fathers of Russia.
Collecting data on everyone’s health records and putting it in a huge database, ultimately putting us all at the mercy of the people who populate and maintain this database.
Providing “insurance” for everyone, and taxing people if they don’t buy it.
Having committees decide what medical services qualify for funding, and deciding who can receive medical service from limited resources.
Right, the founding fathers would approve of this intrusion into our rights, our privacy, our liberty. Sure, Nancy.
When asked where it was authorized in the constitution, Pelosi laughed, “The constitution?” As if it were a totally irrelevant document. Obviously it is to her. Just like the founders are irrelevant to her. The woman is an absolute traitor.
Nancy is an idiot
Pelosi doesn’t need to learn history. History is whatever a liberal says it is.
She must count Marx, Lenin, Stalin, & Trotsky as founding fathers then.
The Founders sought to limit government, not involve it in every aspect of people’s lives.
Are the botox injections squeezing on her brain or does she just need an intervention for her crack addiction problem?
Mao and Deng Xiaoping?
The Founders: This is what we worked so hard for? Who is this cretin?
The democrat oracle speaks out.
If King George had tried a scheme like 0bamaCare our Founding Fathers would have crossed the Atlantic and taken the war to British soil.
“That’s why they put it right there in The Constitution! Free Health Care for all- just look it up”
Pelosi: “ To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.”
Let’s follow her stretched brain’s logic. Forcing Americans to purchase shoddy service is to her the key to a free life?
The shoddy service leads to lesser quality of health than either people who choose their own providers and pay for them, or people who eschew much medical treatment and go for prevention via their lifestyle. Using the doctors and hospitals who accept obamacare = the cheapest medicines, the more sick and diseased in the hospitals and waiting rooms. The doctors least likely to insist on testing for nutritional deficiencies. THUS OBAMACARE CLEARLY LEADS TO POORER HEALTH.
So forcing Americans into the narrow chutes to poorer health will give you liberty to have more fun?
If I took a gun and forced a man to walk through St Elsewhere in any urban downtown in the country, force him to touch the linens, eat a meal there, take a shower inside a patient room, and get a sponge bath from Harvey, he will be healthier after?
And then thus freer to live a pleasant life? But he wasn’t free to choose which hospital to walk through, was he?
So first we must take away “choice” - something I thought Pelosi was especially in favor of.
Why does no one just up and call her the biggest idiot of all time? The Emperor’s New Clothes: it is us.
She is mentally damaged, delusional, and is a risk to herself and others.
Do the idiots behind her know they look even stupider than her?
Who really cares what this basket of crazy-snakes, this cocaine-addled freak, this Cryptkeeper Botox Special, has to say about ANYTHING?
Nan is an air head of the highest order.
