    CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) said Wednesday that Obamacare is "going to be a beautiful thing" that allows people to have "freedom." While admitting that the Obamacare website is having problems that are “beyond glitches," she insisted that “somebody should fix it.” “The situation right now is unacceptable," said Pelosi. "It’s unfortunate. "But we did not work very hard and many of us dedicate our public service to a website," she said. "It was to an initiative for affordable quality healthcare to all Americans as a right, not a privilege, and that is what this initiative...

    It seems that the question “What difference does it make?” continues to be touted by radical socialist Democrats. First it was former State Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton as she became flustered during questioning about Benghazi. Just days ago, following the spending bill that screwed over the American taxpayer for political expediency, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi asked “What difference does it make” what was in the spending bill? nancy-pelosi-282x300Pelosi addressed reporters during a weekly press briefing on Thursday to discuss the last minute deal, which ignores spending caps mandated by the sequester and included several appropriations that have caused...

    (CNSNews.com) - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that President Barack Obama has “tried so hard to listen, to accommodate, to be respectful of” the Republicans in Congress. Following dinner with 12 Republican senators on Wednesday night, President Obama is meeting with House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for lunch on Thursday in attempts to reach out to Republicans on Capitol Hill. During her weekly press conference, Pelosi was asked if the reason Congress and the White House have failed to reach a “grand bargain” was due to Obama’s “not reaching out" to rank-and-file Republicans. “This president...

    (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Thursday that the Supreme Court will vote 6-3 to uphold the constitutionality of President Barack Obama’s health care law, meaning that one member of the court's 4-vote conservative wing--which includes Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas, and Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts--will side with the administration on the challenges to the legislation that the court heard earlier this year. "6-3. That's it. 6-3," said a seemingly confident Pelosi. In addition to Chief Justice Roberts and Justices Scalia, Thomas and Alito, the other five justices on the court are Anthony...

    CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith "compels" her to "be against discrimination of any kind" and thus for same-sex marriage. A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they're opposed. You're a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?” Pelosi responded: "My religion has, compels me--and I love...

    CNSNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters at her Thursday briefing that President Barack Obama "has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress." She was responding to a reporter who asked her to react to House Speaker John Boehner (R-Calif.) who said on Wednesday that the “president has been AWOL since Labor Day” and that he “lacks the courage to lead on the economy.” “The fact is this president has been so respectful of the Republicans in Congress," Pelosi said.

    CNSNews.com) - During an event at Texas A&M University on Monday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed the Catholic Church has not enforced its teaching on contraception and that the church now wants the federal government to enforce that teaching for it. “Ninety-eight percent of women in childbearing age that are Catholic use contraception. So, in practice the church has not enforced this and now they want the federal government and private insurance to enforce it. It just isn’t consistent to me,” Pelosi said. The statement came after Pelosi was questioned about the conflict between the Catholic Church and...

    (CNSNews.com) – House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that President Barack Obama chose to embrace so-called “super PACs” (political action committees) for his re-election campaign so that billionaire philanthropists Charles H. Koch and David G. Koch would not “decide who the next President would be.” “The president made a decision, which I think was a wise one, that he was not going to unilaterally disarm and leave the field to the Koch brothers to decide who will be president of the United States and would control the Congress, and his commitment was for full disclosure,” Pelosi said.

    (CNSNews.com) -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that “women can die on the floor” if Congress passes a GOP-backed bill that would prohibit federal funds from being used to pay for any part of a health plan that covers abortion under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare. At a press conference on Capitol Hill today, a reporter asked Pelosi, “Can you comment on the abortion [bill] the GOP is bringing to the House floor tonight?” Pelosi said: “Under this [abortion] bill, when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be...

    Despite the media firestorm over her military travel abuses, Nancy Pelosi continued to use the United States Air Force as her own personal travel agency right up until her final days as House Speaker according to documents we uncovered from the Air Force. According to these new documents, which we obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Pelosi used Air Force aircraft for 43 flights from January 1 to October 1, 2010. By comparison, Nancy Pelosi logged 47 flights in the previous nine-month period, April 1, 2009, to January 1, 2010, according to previous documents we uncovered. So, in...

    Democratic staff passed out a press release to reporters on their way into a briefing with the new House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer Tuesday that read: “Meet the New Republicans – Same as the Old Republicans.” But on Tuesday at least, House Democrats were the same as the old Republicans. One day before entering the minority, House Democrats rolled out a line of attack against the new House Republican majority that was almost identical to the one that the GOP used against them over the last two years. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, and other party leaders complained...

    (CNSNews.com) - When Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) gave her inaugural address as speaker of the House in 2007, she vowed there would be “no new deficit spending.” Since that day, the national debt has increased by $5 trillion, according to the U.S. Treasury Department. "After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending,” Pelosi said in her speech from the speaker’s podium. “Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt."

    The CEO of the nation's largest public policy women's organization says it's outrageous that Nancy Pelosi seems to care more about investigating the detractors of the 9/11 mosque than those who are spearheading the project. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California)Congresswoman Pelosi (D-California), the Speaker of the House, created quite a stir when during a recent interview on KCBS radio in San Francisco she hinted that the government should investigate those who oppose the construction of the mega-mosque so close to Ground Zero. "There is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some," she told KCBS. "And I join...

    A conservative author believes liberals are ruining America, and his new book explains seven ways to prove his theory. Terence Jeffrey, author of Control Freaks: 7 Ways Liberals Plan to Ruin Your Life, shares that as he recently found himself observing the direction the country is headed, it struck him "very hard that there is a real possibility that freedom could go away in this generation of Americans." He points out that freedom in America is not a guarantee, so it is "up to each and every generation of Americans to make sure we maintain those principles -- both of...

    At a time when unemployment sits at 9.5 percent and job creation in the private sector has stagnated, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi reconvened members of Congress for an emergency one-day session to vote on a so-called stimulus bill. Also to be considered was a “No Lame-Duck Session” resolution, offered by Republican Study Committee Chairman Tom Price, R-Ga. The resolution called on Congress “not to assemble on or between the dates of November 2, 2010 and January 3, 2011, except in the case of an unforeseen, sudden emergency requiring immediate action from Congress.” ‘NO LAME DUCK SESSION’ RESOLUTION BLOCKED...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-California) recent comments about unemployment, made during her defense of a bill that would extend benefits for more than a million people, have generated a storm of criticism. In her speech last week, Pelosi denied that jobless benefits give Americans little incentive to find work and argued that federal-assisted benefits create jobs and increase economic demand. Tom McClusky, senior vice president of Family Research Council Action, disagrees with Pelosi's stand. "She is showing a serious lapse of knowledge," he contends. "It certainly eases [the] pain of workers who are laid off. [But unemployment benefits] provide people...

    The November 3 special congressional election in New York may not be over after all. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) may have jumped the gun by swearing in new Democratic Congressman Bill Owens from the 23rd Congressional District of New York. Although Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman conceded to Owens, the state has yet to certify the election -- and the recanvassing of votes by the county Boards of Election shows Owens' lead has narrowed to 3,026 votes, with about 5,800 absentee ballots received so far that have yet to be counted.

    (CNSNews.com) – Sen. Daniel Akaka (D-Hawaii) says he is “not aware” of the Constitution giving Congress the authority to make individuals purchase health insurance, as the health care bills in both the House and Senate require. When CNSNews.com asked whether the Constitution gives Congress the authority to make Americans buy health insurance, Sen. Akaka said: “I’m not aware of that, let me put it that way. But what we’re trying to do is to provide for people who have needs and that’s where the accessibility comes in, and one of the goals that we’re trying to present here is to...

    For one, brief shining moment last week, I thought Nancy Pelosi must be the bravest American politician of the century, standing up to her own nutball constituency in the interest of American political politesse. After all, when she tearfully told a press conference that the partisan bombast should be dialed down several notches lest it turn bloody -- ``I saw this myself in the late '70s in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric . . . it created an environment in which violence took place'' -- she had to be talking about left-wing violence, right? Because when you talk about...

    HOUSE Speaker Nancy Pelosi is the Jennifer Lopez of con gressional travel - fickle, demanding and notoriously insensitive to the time, costs and energy needed to accommodate her endless demands. On Tuesday, the indispensable government watchdog Judicial Watch released a trove of public records through the Freedom of Information Act on Pelosi's travel arrangements with the US military. As speaker, Pelosi is entitled to reasonable military protection and transport. But it's the size of the planes, the frequency of requests and last-minute cancellations, and the political nature of many of her trips that scream out for accountability. And, of course,...
