House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) claimed Thursday that the federal government created the iPhone rather than the technology company Apple or its former chief executive officer, Steve Jobs.
Anybody here have a smartphone? Pelosi asked an audience at a Democratic National Convention Platform hearing in Washington, D.C.
Pelosi then held up an iPhone for everyone to see, telling those in the room, In this smartphone, almost everything came from federal investments in research.
She then listed elements of the iPhone that various parts of the government have contributed to in certain ways.
The list goes on and on. If you want to learn more, look at the Association for the Advancement of Science in America, and they have the full list, Pelosi said. They say Steve Jobs did a good idea designing it and putting it together. Federal research invented it.

No, government created people like Nancy Pelosi.
Silly Plastic Face it was algore who invented it.
If the government had created it, it would weigh 30 lbs, have a battery life of 1/2 hour and would cost $20,000
Your small family business ...
You didn’t build any of that. All good things come from the government. Mostly Al Gore and Obama: they built the world; we just live in it.
You cant get more hypocritical than lawyer politicians.
I doubt it, Nance. The iPhone works.
And we’d all be mandated to buy it.
Pelosi is an idiot.
Leo Szilard patented the idea of a nuclear reactor in 1933 and described the physics of a chain reaction. It still took hundreds of brilliant or dedicated scientists and engineers quite a few years to complete the Manhattan Project.
Similarly, a few components of the iPhone came from government projects, but Apple turned them from slow, bulky behemoths into an excellent, user-friendly product.
Wow...we really are like the Soviet Union in so many ways.
Even our outrageously funny lies are similar.
democrats and government.
You didn’t build that.
You’ve invented enough stuff.
Don’t you know your innovations came from your psychically thieving the minds of brown and black geniuses condemned to flipping burgers? And then you disenfranchise them with robot designs you stole from their minds?
Have you no shame? Put your efforts to discovering useful for all mankind. Like a counterbalance to keep Guam from tipping over.
Pelosi needs a frontal lobotomy; like 40 years ago.
I think those in DC live a very provincial life, completely unaware of whats happening in the rest of the country. The very same country they perport to be governing.
No genius, past or present, could devise such satire.
There she goes not reading, again.
The effects of Botox brain poisoning
Pelosi Galore and Al Baby are running the world now?
