House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) once again had her sanity questioned on Thursday with her bizarre remarks concerning the Affordable Care Act and Democratic candidate's chances in the midterm elections.
Pelosi said, "I believe that it's a winner," at a hastily prepared news conference. She criticized Republicans for repeatedly attempting to repeal the law.
Rep. Pelosi was the House Majority Leader when Obamacare passed with not one Republican vote. She is largely viewed as the single most important person for the law’s existence today.
The House congresswoman from San Francisco frowns on the many repeal attempts Republicans have made on the bill/law that was signed four years ago today.
"Fifty-one times the Republicans have voted to repeal this freedom and opportunity for the American people. These ceaseless Republican votes are not only a waste of time, they have a real and heavy opportunity cost, time wasted on partisan antics that should have been spent instead of the top, our top priority, and a top priority of the American people, creating job," a red-faced, wide-eyed Pelosi roared.
Pelosi was asked after her fiery speech if she thought Democrats running in November would tout their vote for Obamacare or try to avoid it altogether. An indignant Pelosi fired back, "You have to ask them, the member, but I believe that it's a winner," she said.
The government’s biggest advocate of the Obamacare website, HealthCare.gov, Pelosi has her work cut out campaigning for Democrats who voted for the Affordable Care Act.
So far conservative groups are outspending Democrats attacking the Affordable Care Act this cycle in battleground states.
