NBC confronts Pelosi with ‘pass it to see what’s in it’ clip; hot mess follows

Nancy Pelosi still can’t see it.

Confronted by “Meet the Press” host David Gregory on Sunday about her famous Obamacare statement of 2010 — “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” — the San Francisco congresswoman didn’t give an inch.

pelosi 1“I stand by what I said there: When people see what’s in the bill, they will like it, and they will,” Pelosi said, in utter defiance of reality.

“It took a great deal for us to pass the bill. I said, ‘If we go up to the gate and the gate is locked, we’ll unlock the gate. If we can’t do that, we’ll climb the fence. If the fence is too high, we’ll pole-vault in.’”

Set aside for a second the fact that Pelosi might have thought she was talking about the Democratic approach to immigration. The former House speaker had no visible qualms about defending the handiwork she and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid produced during the disastrous years, from 2008-2010, that Democrats held both houses of Congress.

“It doesn’t matter what we’re saying here,” Pelosi nattered. “What matters is what happens at the kitchen table of the American people.”

Actually, what matters is what’s been happening with congressional Democrats who aren’t lucky enough to be from San Francisco and who abandoned President Obama Friday by voting for the “Keep Your Health Plan Act,” sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Ill.

What matters is what’s going to happen to Democrats who don’t start listening to their constituents when election time rolls around in November.

What matters is that the American people are seeing what’s in the bill. It’s what conservatives have been saying was in the bill for three years now.

They’re seeing it. And, no matter what Nancy Pelosi says, they don’t like it at all.

    liberal media wakes up ONLY when THEIR pockets are being affected, they are all still scum

  • lovinspoonful

    But, Nancy, we don’t like it and don’t want it. Why do we have to accept it when you don’t and Obama doesn’t? Obama has even threatened people if they force him to sign up for it. What makes you so special? the government is not to act in a way that is better than what they fore on the people. the whole thing is illegal.l

    • Alice

      Nancy would say you don’t know what you want and she knows better what is best for you.

    • sickandtired

      That woman was pretty nervous in this interview. And she needs to be strung up. I have had just about enough of her. Get her out of our misery.

    • puzzled

      We the people need to remind ALL politicians that they work for us not the other way around. We have let them get away with this nonsense for decades, it time to turn the tables and force them to abide by what they are forcing on the American public.

      • lovinspoonful

        I agree with that. They seem to have it backwards.

    • PhylBoyse

      And who gave them the right to decide if your policy is “substandard”?????? No one. It is their way of control. This stupid brainless dumb broad can’t even talk straight or normal. She has medical problems herself and needs to see a doctor. But it is just getting very tiresome for these dictators telling us what is good for us – yet they don’t have to be under the same “laws”.

      • lovinspoonful

        They are supposed to be according to the cConstitution; however, they don’t pay any attention to that.

  • kuda93

    How does someone in such a small body blow so much smoke? Is her ego SO large that she doesn’t see how ridiculous she is? She thoroughly believes the American people are ignorant and stupid!

    • Rene Thompson

      It’s liberal arrogance…..”Americans are too stupid to know what they want….so we’re going to tell them what they want.”

    • Desiree Seifert

      IF you voted democrat, you are ignorant and stupid!

    • David Ruthstrom

      Unabashed chutzpah! Plain and simple.

    • Trulyfox

      Probably because she’s from San Francisco

  • kuda93

    Here, you have to buy this car. No, you don’t need to know anything about it before you buy it. We’ll let you know everything about it after you buy it. You bought it = 2 mpg – tranny is almost shot, leaks oil live a sieve, there’s a dead body in the trunk, your mother in law lives in the back seat (and she wears diapers). No, you can’t make any changes or fix anything…you’re stuck with it.

    • Mark Stewart
