  • Pelosi: Remember How Carefully We Considered Obamacare? (Really?)

    01/16/2017 1:45:34 PM PST · by Kaslin · 39 replies ^ | January 16, 2017 | Cortney O'Brien
    Democrats couldn't bother to read all of the Affordable Care Act legislation while it was being debated in Congress. Of course you can't really blame them, considering it was 2,000 pages long. Yet, they passed it anyway, without one Republican vote. Before the vote, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi showed her hand by infamously noting they had to "pass it to see what's in it." Now, as Republicans have begun the process of repealing the ACA, Pelosi is acting as if the original document was gone over with a fine tooth comb. With @HouseGOP sprinting ahead w/o plan, it’s worth remembering...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on Friday that were it not for "the work" of President Barack Obama, the federal debt would have increased even more than the $9 trillion that it has increased over the eight years of his presidency. Absent the work of President Obama this national debt would be even higher, Pelosi said at her weekly briefing with reporters at the Capitol when asked about the increase in the federal budget under Obama.

    WASHINGTON Americas intelligence chiefs sat down with members of Congress behind closed doors on Friday for what they thought would be a straightforward briefing on Russian cyberattacks. What ensued instead was a confrontation Democrats have long sought with James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why, the House Democrats demanded to know, did Mr. Comey believe it was O.K. to make repeated disclosures during the campaign about the investigation into Hillary Clintons emails but to this day refuse to say if the F.B.I. is investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia? His answers did...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi blamed former President George W. Bush and the Republicans on Friday for the more than $9 trillion that has been added to the national debt under President Obama's watch. Pelosi argued that under Obama, the annual budget deficit, which contributes to the national debt, has been reduced dramatically, and said that without Obama's work, the national debt would be even higher. She also mostly blamed Bush for not paying for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. "When President Obama stood on the steps on the Capitol eight years from next week, the [budget] deficit was...

    With the incoming Trump administration wanting to repeal Obamacare, Rep. Nancy Pelosi tried defending how it was passed. PELOSI: The Affordable Care Act was passed not under reconciliation when it first came to the Congress. So the main part of the bill House and Senate was not under reconciliation. But the bulk of the bill if you look back to the history of it the bulk of the bill was done on the 60-vote rule, not under reconciliation. CNS NEWS REPORTER: But it passed without a single Republican vote.

    They're 'terrified' of Trump's 100-day plan On Friday, I posted my countdown of the 5 biggest Election Day losers. Number one on that list was the progressive movement. Number two was George Soros. As I said, there is simply no way to overstate the destruction that election 2016 hath wrought upon the left-wings agenda. Theyre well aware that, due to the untimely death of Antonin Scalia and the ages of the other justices, winning this election was the key to their anti-constitutional dream. ...And they failed spectacularly.
  • Amid whispers about her future, Pelosi says Democrats are willing to work with Trump

    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 Trumps agenda. Were 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...

    A hacked email released by WikiLeaks on Sunday suggests Hillary Clinton was miffed by Nancy Pelosis initial refusal to endorse her during the Democratic presidential primary. Clinton aide Huma Abedin noted in a July 16, 2015, email to a list of people including campaign Chairman John Podesta that Clinton had asked for the House Democratic leaders endorsement over Sen. Bernie Sanders. Pelosi didnt say yes, Abedin wrote. HRC said she felt it was a non-answer. Abedin suggested that she or Podesta call Pelosis top aide to see what the deal is but she wasnt prepared for that answer, according to...
  • Pelosi: Clinton impeachment 'outside our constitutional framework'

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi denounced Republican chatter about impeaching Hillary Clinton as "a brazen attempt" to defy the results of the presidential election. "In addition to there being no grounds for impeachment to begin with, moving to impeach President Hillary Clinton for alleged activities from before the election would be a brazen attempt to nullify the vote of the American people, outside our constitutional framework and destructive to the Framers' intent," the California Democrat said in a Thursday statement. FBI Director James Comey notified lawmakers last week that investigators have reopened the investigation of Clinton's use of a private...

    With just three months to go in the election, President Obamas campaign manager faced a fusillade of questions Wednesday about whether he deliberately skirted disclosure rules during his time as deputy White House chief of staff, undermining the administrations claim to be the most transparent administration in history. A House Energy and Commerce Committee report released Tuesday revealed several emails from senior White House aides sent from private addresses, as well as email correspondence about meetings with lobbyists purposely scheduled off campus to avoid official records. Jim Messina, then Mr. Obamas deputy chief of staff, sent one particularly embarrassing email...

    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....

    Tennessee is ground zero for ObamaCares nationwide implosion. Late last month the state insurance commissioner, Julie Mix McPeak, approved premium increases of up to 62% in a bid to save the exchange set up under the Affordable Care Act. I would characterize the exchange market in Tennessee as very near collapse, she said. Then last week BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee announced it would leave three of the states largest exchange marketsNashville, Memphis and Knoxville. We have experienced losses approaching $500 million over the course of three years on ACA plans, the company said, which is unsustainable. As a result, more...
