Nancy "I smile all the time" Pelosi is examined in an article in The Hill giving herself a pat on the back for messing up health care:
The public option, for example, has been stripped from the bill because Republicans were so adamantly against it, she said.
When asked to grade the past year, Pelosi said, "I think I get an A for effort."
Unaware of her dyslexic confusion, Nancy P. deserves an "I" for Incompetence. And the public option was stripped from the bill because a large minority of her own party were against it besides those mean nasty Republicans. This superannuated bimbo has been telling the country for almost a year that when "Americans see what the bill contains, they will be in favor..." but Queen Botox can't show America what's in the bill because there were no committee hearings where differences were aired out, no transparency whatsoever, and thankfully by the end of November, there will be no Female Speaker to disgrace the House of Representatives with specious captious spurious BS promulgated with a bunch of ethical moral lepers like Charlie Rangel and John Murtha [RIP] watching her back. The preposterous frozen smile will be ejected from the Speakership just as Dems who vote for an abortion-on-demand bill will be ejected from their office---voted out by angry taxpayers who don't want to mortgage the family health to room temp IQ Dems who practice nepotism by the planeload. But between now and then, the insufferable crone continues riding her broomstick on the compliant nets and unwatched cable shows like CNN & [P]MSNBC. Senator McCain is a voice of sanity among the pols on TV this Sunday:
"This bill was written by Dems, for Dems," he said. "What they try to do is peel off a couple of Republicans and call it bipartisan.".
Doubts have circled this week that the House does not have the votes to pass the Democrats’ healthcare overhaul.
Centrist and anti-abortion lawmakers who have doubts about the cost of the president’s proposal and its support for the Senate’s abortion provisions have indicated that they are still not on board with the plan. Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who attached an amendment to the House bill with strict prohibitions against federal funding for abortions, said this week that there are 15-20 lawmakers who are not on board with the current plan
Rep. Paul Ryan [R-Wis] thinks that only a dozen or so will refuse the weird old lady's pleas to include infanticide as a taxpayer-paid benefit to Americans who want to kill their children.
My guess is that the tricky old withered witch of the west will sneak a codicil demanding all health employees will be required to join the SEIU in one of those double-secret footnotes hidden in an amendment rushed through at the last minute. Then they can join CALPERS and remain Dem voters for life---or until California declares bankruptcy that the USG will refuse to cover.
