Pelosi’s “Read the Bill” Moment

When John Conyers ridiculed those who wanted him to actually “read the bill” last summer, we nodded our heads and generally agreed that people like him were the problem in Washington — so, we elect people to pass laws that they don’t even bother to read?  Yup.  We thought it, and it was confirmed in plain English.

Here’s Nancy Pelosi’s version of that same line today:

“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 [my emphasis], away from the fog of the controversy.”


Yup.  I guess the Speaker of the House not expected to read the bill or know what’s in it either.

She is a senator from the San Franscisco, California area. Need I say more?

No, she’s a Congressperson, Rick, not a Senator. But I won’t denigrate where you’re from because we’re all proud Americans.
