Nancy Pelosi reiterated her claim that ObamaCare is a “winner” when asked about it at a news conference celebrating ObamaCare’s fourth anniversary.
“Just because people say, ‘I don’t want to repeal it but I want to fix it’ doesn’t mean they’re walking away from it,” Pelosi said, pointing out that the Florida special election took place in a swing district.
When asked by a reporter whether Obamacare was becoming a liability in midterm election campaigning, Pelosi replied, “I believe it’s a winner.
Democrat Alex Sink lost to a Republican in Florida in the recent special election. They both ran on ObamaCare. When asked about that, Pelosi said it means that Democrats are “ready for the next putt”. The results were close, she said.
The results were close because the Libertarian Lucas Overby took 4.83 percent of the votes. Democrats always seem to find a Libertarian who will run and take votes from Republicans. When are Republicans going to find a Socialist Party member to run against Democrats? But I digress.
Pelosi then went into a tangent about the health law’s name being the Affordable Care Act (though it is actually unaffordable). She actually claimed the law will lower costs though we know that is not true. She said opponents started using “ObamaCare” because they “wanted to get away from the word “affordable.”
I think not.
She scolded President Obama for using the term “ObamaCare himself”.
She is trying to get Obama’s name out of the equation because she thinks we are all stupid enough to forget it is his law and the Democrats’ law: “And by the way, it’s called the Affordable Care Act,” she told a reporter, repeating the law’s name several times. “I know you didn’t intend anything derogatory, but it’s called the Affordable Care Act. I tell [Obama] the same thing I told you. Affordable — there’s a reason.”
She just gave the lapdogs in the press their marching orders!
