Nancy Pelosi On Health Care: ‘Give Me A Couple Trillion Dollars, And I’ll Show You What You Bought’

Peter Suderman at Reason provides the less-than-delicious analogy of Nancy Pelosi’s ObamaCare sales pitch:

Try it! You'll like it, I promise.

Like a Tupperware container full of smelly mystery meat, Nancy Pelosi says that the only way we can find out exactly what’s in the health care bill is to try it:

“You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other.  But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket.  Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

If anyone wants to make the point that Democrats are intelligent life forms, all you have to do is share the wisdom of Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Reid (remember his “Today is a big day in America. Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good” remark last week?) to document that they fit much better in the bacteria category.

The worst thing is that this isn’t just a bag of hot air that Pelosi is trying to peddle; it’s something far, far worse.

The ObamaCare boondoggle is a case where America will one day soon open their door in surprise to see a flaming bag filled with dog crap.  And they can try to stomp out the flames at their peril.
