She’s a 76-year-old white woman whose father was the boss of the corrupt Democrat machine in Baltimore during the segregation era, and being married to a multimillionaire California real-estate investor, she’s one of the top 10 richest members of Congress. Democrats in Congress couldn’t have picked a more out-of-touch leader if they had tried. The geriatric liberal, whose political beliefs are like a fossil of the 1988 Dukakis campaign, apparently cannot understand why Democrats keep losing.Inhabiting a world of Castro Streets, she can't imagine what the rest of the country thinks.
In 2010, Pelosi insisted on ramming ObamaCare through Congress: “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Eight months later, in the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans scored their biggest congressional gains since 1938. Four years later, Democrats lost the Senate, and their losses have been even worse at the state level.
“Republicans are now in control of a record 67 (68 percent) of the 98 partisan state legislative chambers in the nation,” as Barbara Hollingsworth reported. “In 24 of the 32 states with Republican-controlled legislatures, voters have also elected Republican governors.”
Pelosi can’t seem to grasp why her party has become so unpopular, and instead resorts to scapegoating rationalizations:
While giving a press briefing to reporters, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the GOP’s push to defund the taxpayer funded Planned Parenthood a “manhood thing.”Despite the spectacular failure of ObamaCare, which has driven up health insurance premiums everywhere, Nancy Pelosi still can’t understand why anyone would want to repeal ObamaCare, and her propaganda phrase, “America’s working families,” is the exact opposite of reality. “Working families” — married people with jobs — generally had health insurance before ObamaCare was enacted, and have found themselves paying higher premiums because of the mandates imposed by ObamaCare.
During her press briefing, Pelosi fielding questions about Republican plans to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and remove taxpayer funding for abortion provider Planned Parenthood.
At the end of her remarks, Pelosi said, “Let me end on this note. Of all the things that they could be doing in a reconciliation bill — job creation, deficit reduction — no, forget that. What are they doing in this bill? Overturning the Affordable Care Act, undermining the health security and financial stability of America’s working families, and defunding Planned Parenthood. That’s their — that’s their manhood thing,” Pelosi said while shaking her hands.
“You know, defunding Planned Parenthood. How can they establish that as a priority unless they’re coming at all of this from a very ideological stand-point?” she asked. . .
ObamaCare wasn’t about “working families,” it was about mandating and subsidizing coverage for the kind of people who don’t have jobs or don’t have families, i.e., the typical Democrat voter. Republicans officials may not be rude enough to actually say this, but the people who vote Republican are not so stupid they can’t figure it out. What were Democrats really talking about when they invoked “pre-existing conditions” as an urgent cause to change our healthcare system? AIDS? Hepatitis? Cocaine addiction? “Gender dysphoria”? . . .
