Latest Nancy Pelosi Items
In reading the many columns and letters about the Obamacare fiasco, it strikes me that most focus on how "President Obama lied." While that is certainly true, Mr. Obama is now a lame duck who will be out of office come Jan. 20, 2017. The focus needs to be on the congressional Democrats who lied right along with the president.
So much for President Obama's convoluted announcement that offered home remedies for the big ills of health care reform, plus a one year sign-up reprieve for those who have lost their insurance. For a president who enjoys golf, the big news teed up Republican outrage to perfection. Oh, the irony.
Democrats say they haven't given up hope of acting on an immigration bill this year, despite House Speaker John A. Boehner's comments earlier in the week essentially putting the issue out of reach.
President Obama will speak about the Affordable Care Act at 11:35 a.m. Thursday, the White House announced.
House Speaker John A. Boehner on Wednesday flatly ruled out even entering into negotiations with the Senate on that chamber's immigration bill, signaling that the issue is dead for this year — and setting up major hurdles for any action before the midterm elections.
President Obama, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Harry Reid and all the other Democrats who supported the overhaul of the whole health care system need to repeal Obamacare now. If the younger people don't sign up for it, and the president delays certain parts of it, how much money will be coming in to fund it?
Democrats spent heavily to win Virginia's governorship, but Republicans said Wednesday that the closer-than-expected loss by state Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II provided a clear demonstration of how they can exploit the unpopularity of Obamacare next year to win the congressional midterm elections.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi launched a defense of President Obama this weekend, telling Sunday talk-show hosts that she can't understand why Mitt Romney would accuse the leader of dishonesty because he's such a man of vision.
No government has taken as much sheer wealth from its citizens as the United States has done this year. The record-breaking $2.8 trillion federal haul represents $24,000 from every U.S. household. On average, that's nearly half of each household's total income. That would be enough for Croesus, the ancient king of Lydia famous in his day as the happiest and wealthiest man on earth. Croesus had it all. But Nancy Pelosi could teach him a thing or two about greed.
