Susan Ferrechio Remembers The Other Crazy Statement of Nancy Pelosi

Susan Ferrechio
Susan Ferrechio, chief congressional correspondent for the Washington Examiner made a great point on Greta Van Susteran's "On The Record" show on the Fox News Channel.  They were talking about the new CBO report that stated millions of Americans would have a disincentive to work in order to receive Obamacare subsidies.

Leftists Democrats [sorry for being redundant] and the administration are now actually saying that this is a good thing [NY Times says "mostly a good thing"] because it will allow workers to choose if they want to work 40-60 hours a week and have to buy their own health insurance, or either not work or work only 29 hours a week and be able to receive subsidies to get Obamacare.  Can you believe it, some supposed responsible people [on the left] are actually saying that it would be a good thing that a person works less hours or not have a job at all, because they will be getting Obamacare.  Of course, this is a dream that Obama has had since he became president.  The more people that are out of work or work for very few hours make them more dependent on the federal government.  The more people dependent on the federal government means the more people who will vote Democrat, and the cycle goes on and on.  Talk about the 'affordable' care act having a "death spiral" if not enough young and healthy join it, the more people that there are on the government dole that Obama is aiming for, could be the "death spiral" for America.  If Obama succeeds, and he is well on his way to getting there, in fundamentally transforming the United States of America, that will be the end of America as we know it.  That certainly will be the end of America as the exceptional country in the world.

So, while talking about this with Greta on her show on Wednesday night, Susan Ferrechio brought up this crazy statement from, at the time, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, that I had completely forgot about.  No, it's not the one, "we have to pass the bill [ACA] to find out what's in it."  I remembered that one.  It was another crazy statement from the then Speaker of the House.

Nancy Pelosi said [via Susan Ferrichio] and from America's Watch Tower [From May 10 of 2010]: "We see it [Obamacare] as an entrepreneurial bill,” Pelosi said, “a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care."

There it was.  I remember at the time it seemed crazy and people were making fun of Nancy Pelosi.  But Nancy Pelosi let the cat out of the bag. That is exactly what is happening with Obamacare [as stated by the CBO] and Nancy Pelosi, back in 2010, and the Democrats now are saying that is a good thing.   Amazing.

One thing, I have to give Congresswoman Pelosi credit for, unlike this president, she was actually telling the truth when she said [paraphrasing]: "We have to pass Obamacare to find out what's in it", and the subsidies of Obamacare will lead to Americans working less hours.
 
I want to say Bravo to journalist Susan Ferrechio for remembering the other crazy statement from Nancy Pelosi.  Good job Susan!
