Pelosi: Death of 40-hour work week means freedom to ‘follow your passion’

Americans with a lot free time on their hands thanks to Obamacare can spend it pursuing their happiness instead of earning a living, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday.

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” host Candy Crowley read Pelosi part of a letter signed by union goon James Hoffa Jr. that described Obamacare’s impact on employers as a way to “destroy the foundation of the 40-hour work week.”

nancypelosi“That’s pretty tough from a loyal Democratic constituency,” said Crowley, sometimes considered a pretty loyal Democratic constituency herself.

Pelosi was unfazed.

Some parts of Obamacare need to be clarified, she acknowledged, but losing that 40-hour work week will really free Americans to “pursue your happiness … follow your passion.”

“Overwhelmingly, for the American people, this is a liberation,” the San Francisco millionaire said dreamily, possibly confusing “the American people”  who have to make a living with her fellow guests at George Soros’s wedding Saturday in New York.

“It’s about wellness, it’s about prevention, it’s about a healthy America,” she said.

Actually, it’s about time she hung it up.

    This woman is so out of touch with reality it is not funny. People won’t be able to “pursue” anything. With work hours being cut, people will only be able to survive (maybe) the only thing they will be pursuing will be their next meal and wondering if it will be there. My wife and I are about to loose our car, due to our work hours being CUT, which is directly due to Obamacare. What a wonderful life.

    When you have the financial resources Pelosi has you do not have to work a 40 hour week to pay your bills. For the majority of us we need the income from a 40 hour week to pay our bills. Pelosi is big on Government assistance we need to remind her that if you are on welfare and food stamps you have the time but you do not have the financial resources to follow your passions. The problem is she is one of many morons who are in Congress, the Senate and the White House.

    Sign it and read it later (para) Pelosi!!! What is she on? She must be so Big Pharm’ed up that she is a walking zombie. Please note she has even forgotten how to fake a facial expression of compassion when talking about people whose hours have been cut, it’s all on the same level as, “Have a good day!” Scary, she is rich and powerful… You can tell, NONE of this really registered with her..just a talking head!

    ‘Dingbat’ would be too kind. Career politicians, are the poster children of why we need term limits in every area of the elected government — I say 12 years maximum, then get your butt back into the private sector and make a living the way most of us do; toil and sweat.

    This senile old has never been spacecadet has lost touch with reality…of course what does she know about what its like to try and survive off of a 40 hour workweek at lets just say 10.00 an hour.
    and now the working class can excell in chasing your dreams and find pursuit of happiness on a 25 or 30 hour work week….lol hahahaha whos figuring the math for this bafoon….?????

      Man all you people are just brain washed. You can’t even comprehend a compound sentence. She answered the question about Mr. Hoffa Jr’s comments, and then made, what is known in political circles as a PIVOT, to talk about some of the good things the ACA will do.
      But what should I expect when at the bottom of this page the links to more “NEWS” sources include Breitbart, The Blaze, Right wing news… ALL of them backed by the most evil pair of brothers on the planet. The KOCH brothers… Two out of bunch of really REALLY rich guys that actually want to kill our Constitutional Republic…

    Where are all the liberals at coming to save her now? Ha, finally
    getting what everyone tried to tell you was coming? Stand by more to come!! Oh wait most of the people that voted for her and Obama don’t work anyway… Now where is the money going to come from now once everyone is working 30 hours?? Oh, they just cut off 10 hours tax money also that they will not get?? Nice thought out plan with the ACA? For those that voted for these idiots that is Obamacare since you may not understand what ACA stands for!!
