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.

    Hey Nancy, remember in Woodstock when we were doing that LSD, I got some more.

      I think she’s still using the bad brown stuff from there.

    Can’t stand listening to her lies as much as Obummer’s. What she’s not telling people is she knew that this hc debacle is a predecessor to rationed hc. What used to take a few days or a week to see a doctor about a health concern, will now take 6 mos to a year. Depending on the issue, some patients may not have that long. So it appears that more people will now die needlessly for things that could have been prevented long ago.

  3. Republic Of America says:

    Well Demoron Pelosi according to your rationality “We got to pass it to see whats in it” is acceptable way to conduct passing bills, What do we need you for? Why not just pass ALL bills in this manner that come to the table? In essence we would not need 535 Congressmen then only 52 to represent each state. So WHY dont all Bills get passed first then read later…if they even get read, Why…BECAUSE ITS MORONIC!

  4. H. Johnson says:

    Pelosi is a delusional old woman.

  5. Jack Hannah says:

    Why is she still here and not in a nursing home somewhere?

  6. Aaron J McDowell says:

    The liberal media needs to be held accountable just like Obama, Pelosi & the rest…. firing squad after they’ve been found guilty!

  7. Janet says:

    I think she will be shocked when she is thrown out of office. She and Feinstein along with Obama…and the Senate are totally out of touch with the people.

  8. RhettButler1 says:

    But, but it was supposed to be free. But, but where will I find all that money to pay for it? But, but Obama lied.
