Pelosi says Medicare will help Democrats win majority in House

House Minority Speaker Nancy Pelosi laughed off the chances of a Mitt Romney presidency, while trumpeting the possibility that Democrats will retake the House of Representatives, during an interview aired Sunday on CNN.

Pelosi, speaking with host Candy Crowley on “State of the Union,” pointed to one issue in particular that she thinks will deliver the House to Democrats: Medicare.

“We have been saying there are three important issues in this campaign. And in alphabetical order, they are Medicare, Medicare, Medicare,” she said.

“On August 11, when Gov. Romney chose [Rep. Paul D.] Ryan, that was a pivotal day. That is the day things really changed,” she added, attributing the Wisconsin congressmen’s own controversial Medicare proposals with bringing the program back to the forefront of the election-year debate, and in her opinion, putting the ball back into the Democrats’ court.

Which is Pelosi’s way of saying, “Let’s scare the hell out of the geezers with bull**** lies and we’ve got this in the bag.”

Pelosi is false flagging.

“We [the American people] have been saying there are three important issues in this campaign. And in alphabetical order, they are economy, jobs, unemployment."

Care to speak to any of those Nancy? Of course not.

I went to church today (FL) and Obamacare came up in a group of people. I told them my doctor says he will retire rather than do it. The response was, the reps. are no better because they want to do away with Medicare.

I told them all that was a lie, but the FL papers have been relentless in insisting Romney is going to take away everyone’s medicare. So I went further and asked about the state of the world, it was basically “some people were arrested for killing our ambassador”.

The press is colluding, working hard like Pravda to keep this evil man in the WH. The fall if O is elected is going to be huge, and people have no idea what’s going to hit them, but saying I told you so will give no comfort. The pubs have to figure out how to get the truth out over our 5th column press.

Romney is a jerk, but Obama will end America.

I can’t believe that the commie ‘RATS and their toadies in the state controlled “media” have been able to convince the seniors that it’s the Republicans who are going to raid Medicare for 600 billion dollars to pay for Barry’s ObamaCare. Seniors are “old school”. They were educated in schools that were used to educate people. They should be smart enough not to fall for Barry and Pelosi’s Marxist bull****.

I think that there’s something going on here under the surface.

At a recent family gathering, I had two older (early 70s) female family members tell me that Romney and Ryan were going to take away their Medicare.

They were COMPLETELY unwilling to listen to me when I pointed out that no serious plan from ANY Republican touches current Medicare for people over 55. And they clammed up when I asked where they’d gotten their info.

The term that immediately came to my mind was “brainwashed”. But I don’t see anything out there, overt anyways, trying to make Medicare to be a nationalized issue this Fall. Does anyone else?

The best I can figure is that there’s some kind of under the radar “whisper” style campaign going on aimed at scaring seniors into voting Dem this cycle.

“Nancy Pelosi laughed off the chances of a Mitt Romney presidency, while trumpeting the possibility that Democrats will retake the House of Representatives”

The over confidence being expressed by the RATs across the board is odd. They're either whistling past the graveyard or they've already counted the votes and the fix is in.

Medicare is going to save the Democrats? The very same Medicare that Pelosi and the Democrats DE-FUNDED with Obama care to the tune of 700 BILLION Dollars?

Guess they better throw out Obama Care quick, cause that dog don’t hunt no more.

In order:

No I do not have a positive attitude. I am incredibly sad America has come to this place.

I come to FR to vent and talk, that doesn’t mean I do it in church. IF you noticed, I simply asked people’s opinions. I did not tell anyone in my church my opinions. However, if I am asked, yes I will say them.

My politics are an extension of my philosophy, and while I am very polite, I have opinions borne out of my philosophies and christianity. I am careful how I share them, but I do share them. I don’t run my mouth off in my church, but people there know I am a conservative. And I will garner every vote I can for the conservative side, if I can do so with propriety. And if folks in my church are honestly misled, and want to know the truth, I will try to enlighten them. “Keeping politics out of church” is a Johnson doctrine and how we got into this mess. The Dems sure don’t practice it.

And Romney is a HORRID candidate and Obama is a disaster, and you know I’ll waste my vote on Romney. And most people on FR agree with me.

thanks for your response..

but will disagree that most people on FR don't like Romney..if that is so then I am in error and at the wrong place...been here a long time and did enjoy at one time..couldn't sign off at night until I visited the ‘day in the life of our President’ that is no longer so, but do hope Free Republic will return to what it once was before the ‘hate Romney post’ took on a life here...
have a great week..I am not a mean person, but I have become very worried about my country that my dad, brother, and husband served in the armed Forces for..it will be destroyed under another four years of Hussein.

some days I'm thankful I am the age I am...for I know the days ahead are not a many as the days in my past..
