Today’s quote comes to us from Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), the house minority leader, whose efforts as the House leader have been so instrumental in Democrats going from a 60% majority to their current 44.5% minority.
This is what Ms. Pelosi has to say about the currently proposed tax reform legislation:
A point of order: we are about halfway through the 115th congress of the United States. I don’t know the exact number of bills which have been put forth (not necessarily passed) during the 230 or so years this encompasses, but it would not surprise me if it were in the hundreds of thousands.
But Nancy Pelosi – forgetting her disjointed sentence structure, which itself is an issue – has now informed us that this is the single worst of them all – and that “some of the other things they (Republicans in this congress, I assume, but who knows) have put forth” are giving it stiff competition.
Yep, all the legislative initiatives of all the other 114 congresses pale by comparison. Nothing to look at there, sheeple. Move along, move along.
Not even ObamaCare, which was built on the claims that if you liked your doctor you could keep your doctor, if you liked your current insurance you could keep your current insurance, and that it would save average families $2,500 a year – every one of them a blatant, 100% lie.
Say, wasn’t this the same Nancy Pelosi who said of ObamaCare that “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it”? Well, now we know, don’t we?
It gives me no pleasure to point out that Nancy Pelosi, who, under the best of circumstances, was always a partisan ventriloquist for her party, has lost a considerable degree of mental acuity. The succession of bizarre comments, lost trains of thought, verbal stumbles, etc., that she has made over the past year makes this pretty clear.
With genuine sadness, therefore, I award Ms. Pelosi Quote Of The Day “honors” for a statement that so unmistakably shows us the combination of her partisanship and diminished capacity.
