    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi tied the Republican Party to Ray Rice on Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily.” When asked about Rice and the Democratic Party’s domestic policy agenda, she stated “the issue is about respect or disrespect for women. Whether it’s respect for their ability to make their own choices in terms of their reproductive health, whether it’s equal pay for equal work honoring the value of work that people bring to the table, whether it’s meeting the needs of women in terms of affordable quality childcare, which are for families and not just women.” ......

    ...One of the selling points of Obamacare was the lowering of health insurance costs. Nancy Pelosi promised, “Everybody will have lower rates.” President Obama was more specific, telling us that his signature program would “Bring down premiums by $2,500 for the typical family.” A year later, however, Mrs. Pelosi, in the face of rising premiums for many, forgot her promise of the previous year, "I don't remember saying that everybody in the country would have a lower premium." Mrs. Pelosi’s sudden bout of amnesia isn’t surprising. Health insurance premiums rose up to 56 percent under Obamacare and some of her...

    Democrats fought back Sunday against claims from a former Obama aide that the White House might delay Obamacare’s employer mandate. House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi called the mandate, which requires businesses with between 50 and 100 employees to provide health insurance for workers or face a penalty, “integral.” “Of all the things I want to say about the Affordable Care Act, Robert Gibbs' opinion, I don't know who his clients are or what his perspective is, but we are celebrating the fact that we have over 7 million who have signed up,” the California Democrat said on CNN’s “State...

"The administration said for months that the mandate would not be waived for anyone, even those with canceled policies, and it vowed a veto of any delay legislation coming out of Congress. Now the rules have been changed, and some families who have committed to pay thousands of dollars in insurance premiums will feel very personally betrayed by an untrustworthy administration." They join millions of others who are reeling from massive premium increases under this onerous law. Over...

    The House on Thursday rejected a Republican call for a special investigation into whether Speaker Nancy Pelosi was told in September 2002 that the C.I.A. was subjecting terror suspects to waterboarding. On a mainly party line vote of 252 to 172, Democrats upheld a ruling that a request for a special panel to look into the conflicting accounts of Ms. Pelosi and the intelligence community did not merit special treatment, but should be proposed as regular legislation.

Pelosi's critics had already deemed her answers convoluted when she explained that she'd been briefed in 2002 that waterboarding had been approved but not that it would be used on terrorism suspects. But a 10-page summary of briefings of congressional officials prepared by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) indicates Pelosi, then the top Democrat on the Intelligence Committee was briefed with then-Chairman Porter Goss (R-Fla.) on Sept. 4,...
