    SACRAMENTO, CALIF. - U.S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's daughter Christine has taken the spotlight in the sexual harassment scandal enveloping California's Legislature with her claim there are rapists in the state Capitol and lawmakers are protecting them. The younger Pelosi, chair of the California Democratic Party's women's caucus, produced gasps Tuesday when she made the statement at a legislative committee hearing on state sexual harassment policies. While many testified, sometimes angrily, about a dysfunctional system they say protects the powerful and encourages silence from victims, Christine Pelosi's comments stood apart for their bare-knuckle boldness. They struck a nerve, with...

    President Donald Trump signaled support for signing a permanent deal to assist DACA recipients, giving amnesty to illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children. “Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I,” Trump said, referring to Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. (excerpt required clip). The president suggested that ideal legislation would include border security funds and a permanent fix for DACA . “I’d like to see a permanent deal, and I think it’s going to happen,” he said. “I think we’re going to have great support from both sides of Congress.”
  • Nancy Pelosi Rejects Single Payer Being Added to Democratic Party Platform

    Politico reported on May 3 that House Democrats want Republicans to pass an Obamacare repeal bill in the House, citing that the vote could be used against Republicans in the 2018 midterm elections. Democrats affirmed this report by chanting “hey hey hey goodbye” to Republicans after Obamacare repeal marginally passed in the House by a vote of 217 to 213 on May 4. This strategy is terrible for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, it reveals that the Democratic Party is willing to sell out constituents just to receive some attack fodder. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently reaffirmed...
  • Nancy Pelosi: GOP Health Care Plan Would Make ‘Being A Woman A Preexisting Condition’

    03/23/2017 11:56:45 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 50 replies
    WASHINGTON ― Republican leaders are eyeing last-minute changes to their health care bill in order to attract votes from conservative lawmakers, including removing the requirement that insurance companies cover maternity care for everyone. Before the Affordable Care Act became law in 2010, the insurance market was a bleak place for women. They often had to pay more than men for the same coverage. Only 12 percent of individual market plans covered maternity care. And it was completely legal for insurance companies to refuse coverage to women who were pregnant or might become pregnant in the future. One of the ACA’s...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday she does not envision a single House Democrat breaking ranks to vote in favor of the Obamacare replacement bill that GOP leaders are pushing on Capitol Hill. “I don’t see any Democratic votes for what they are doing — none,” Mrs. Pelosi, California Democrat, told reporters at a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor. “It isn’t even about Democrats or Republicans, it is about meeting the needs of the American people.” Republicans advanced their proposal through two committees this week. The bill has come under fire from both conservative and liberal lawmakers....

    Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” while discussing President-elect Donald Trump naming ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, “With all due respect to the president’s nominee, perhaps he’s suitable for something else,” adding that secretary of state was “a revered position.” Pelosi said, “First of all, let’s — what is the job? The job — the secretary of state is really in line to succession to the president of the United States … Well, by sequence, they are, but that’s the primary one and has special status. So the secretary...

    **SNIP** Her main strategy is based not on any new agenda item or tactical messaging shift, but on the hope and expectation that Republicans will try to radically reshape federal entitlement programs in the same manner that they did the last time they had unified control of the White House and Congress, in 2005. “At that time, we committed to each other that we would be unified and disciplined,” Pelosi recalled in an interview with The Washington Post’s Plum Line. “[George W. Bush] had just been elected. He gave us an opportunity by saying he would partially privatize Social Security....

    A day after a disastrous electoral showing, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told fellow Democrats they have a “responsibility to find common ground” with President-elect Donald Trump and that she was prepared to work with him on an infrastructure bill, indicating that Democratic leaders do not plan to pursue a strategy of reflexive opposition to Trump’s agenda. “We’re not starting a campaign against the Republicans right now,” Pelosi said on a Wednesday afternoon conference call with members, according to a Democratic aide on the call. “We want to work together. But I do hope that that political dynamic will give...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday that President George W. Bush was "one of the best presidents on immigration," but that the Republican Party had changed after being "hijacked by a radical wing" of the country. "The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party. It's done great things for our country," the Democratic House leader told NBC's "Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd. "What we've been saying to them is, take back your party. "It's been hijacked by a radical wing of, I don't even know of what, of our country, not even of your party," Pelosi said....
  • Nancy Pelosi wants the speaker’s gavel back. And she needs Hillary Clinton’s help to do it.

    07/27/2016 3:24:59 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 16 replies
    The sum is staggering by any measure: Since she first joined leadership in 2002, Nancy Pelosi has raised more than a half-billion dollars for fellow Democrats, making her the most prolific fundraiser in Congress. And on her way to amassing this small fortune — $521.9 million to be exact, including $93.1 million this election cycle — she has unquestionably become one of the most powerful politicians in Washington. Ask her whether being a woman has anything to do with that success, and she’ll give you a look that conveys how irrelevant she thinks her gender should be. Pelosi thinks that...

    While celebrating Latino culture and art during a San Francisco museum dedication Tuesday, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi chimed in to disapprove of Melania Thump's speech at the Republican National Convention and simultaneously praise the value of immigration in the United States. Although Pelosi did not watch Melania Trump's allegedly plagiarized speech Monday night, the Congresswoman later learned about the controversy and was taken aback. Melania Trump's Speechwriter Admits Mistake "To then say well I don't believe in what (Democrats) believe in but I'm going to use their words in my speech, there's something wrong with that," Pelosi said.
  • Pelosi, Reid: Cancel Memorial Day recess to deal with Zika, Supreme Court

    House and Senate Democrats told Republican leaders Thursday to postpone a Memorial Day recess until their demands for Supreme Court nomination hearings and emergency spending to combat the Zika virus and other crises are met. From the opioids and heroin crisis to the lead-tainted water scandal in Flint, Mich., Congress faces a larger workload than ever but has opted to work less in a contentious election year, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid. Congress is set to skip town Thursday for its Memorial Day break and will not return until the second week...
  • Nancy Pelosi: Too many superdelegates in nomination process

    The Democratic Party relies too heavily on superdelegates to pick its presidential nominees, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday — though she downplayed the current dispute between party leaders and Sen. Bernard Sanders. Mrs. Pelosi called the fight between Mr. Sanders and party leaders a “family disagreement” and insisted it won’t dent the eventual nominee in the general election. She also dismissed comparisons to the riot-fueled 1968 Democratic convention. “This is an incident. That was a colossal … clash of people,” she said.
  • Pelosi, Lee won’t take sides in Clinton versus Sanders

    05/10/2016 1:59:33 PM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 7 replies
    Rep. Barbara Lee and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi are rarely shy about taking stands on issues, except when it comes to the question “Bernie or Hillary?” Lee and Pelosi are the only two elected Bay Area Democrats who have not publicly endorsed either Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Even Pelosi’s daughter Christine Pelosi is backing Clinton, and appeared at the opening of Clinton’s new San Francisco field office Monday. Their rare reticence is rooted in the raw political calculus of not wanting to alienate the partisans on either side, which could result in...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has a word of warning for her fellow Democrats: "We can’t ignore Donald Trump any longer." In a fundraising email sent Wednesday from the Democrats' campaign arm, Pelosi said she's "worried" and "disgusted" by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. She's calling for "serious help from grassroots Democrats to stop him and the Republicans" in November. Translation: send money. "He’s a formidable candidate — and a serious threat to our country," Pelosi said on behalf of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC). "It’s up to us to make sure Trump doesn’t become our next President."...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Friday that Donald Trump might be playing "the joker's card" when he has said Hillary Clinton is playing "the woman's card" as a presidential candidate. "I don't know what card he is playing, I mean what, the joker's card? That doesn't even count in a deck of cards," Pelosi told reporters at her weekly press conference when asked to react to Trump's latest remarks. Pelosi said candidates for elected office shouldn't campaign on their gender. "It's not a winning message. The winning message is 'I think you should support me because I think I...

    Hillary Clinton apologized Friday for praising the late Nancy Reagan’s response to the 1980s AIDS crisis on the day of the former first lady’s funeral. Hillary had said, “It may be hard for your viewers to remember how difficult it was for people to talk about HIV/AIDS in the 1980s.” Clinton added, “With [Nancy’s] very effective, low-key advocacy…it penetrated the public consciousness and people began to say: we have to do something about this too.” The comments were not well received on the Left.
