The village of San Francisco is missing their idiot. Can someone please send Nancy home?
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday said she’s open to keeping the House in session through the August recess to pass its healthcare overhaul.
“I think 70 percent of the American people would want that,” Pelosi said. “I want a bill.”
That stance contradicts House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), who said Tuesday that he didn’t see any point in staying into August if Democrats haven’t reached consensus on a bill by then.
She just makes up numbers and throws them out, fully expecting the ignorant masses to believe her. I’ve spent the last 30 minutes trying to find a poll or survey that coughed up 70% as its operative number. It’s not there. Here are some interesting numbers I did find, though:
41% of Americans would advise their representative in Congress to pass a new healthcare reform law by the end of this year; another 30% would say Congress should pass a new law, but not necessarily this year; and the remainder — 24% — don’t think Congress should pass a new healthcare reform law at all.
I did see some numbers suggesting 70% + from a few months back, so maybe Nancy’s head is just shoved so far up Barry’s ass she doesn’t know what day it is. Have to remember the poll numbers drop as people learn more about what the liberal bastards are actually trying to do. Health care for all is a noble goal – socialized medicine is a death sentence for the very people the democrats pretend to want to help.
Come to think of it, if the masses are ignorant enough to keep these vicious animals in office, maybe they are ignorant enough to believe Nancy’s lies.
