VIDEO: Pelosi Says Obamacare Is "Beautiful," Wants To Go To Single Payer, Public OptionMay. 28, 2014
It's rare when a politician candidly, even joyfully, admits his or her real intentions about a policy, especially when he or she wants to extend a massively unpopular policy. But U. S. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is a bundle of unbridled joy when asked about Obamacare. She not only thinks the law that has forced millions out of their health insurance, to lose their doctors and/or pay drastically higher premiums is good, she thinks it's working, and that it's "beautiful." She adds that it needs to be improved. How? Go all the way with it! Single payer, public option, fully funded government provided socialized medicine! Hear it in her own words in these two brief videos from American Commitment.
First, she thinks it's a winning issue for Democrats, but that it needs to be "improved:"
Then, she calls it "Beautiful:"
The one good thing about this is that for those who refused to listen to the Left's intentions in 2008 and 2009, when some were just as forthcoming, there is no mistaking its true aims now. The American Left wants to own your health care and, therefore, your health care decisions, and ration your care. It seems the only time the Left cares about "choice" in "health care" is to allow for the abortion of unborn babies, although death is not "health care" (love how it controls the language, too). At least it is consistent. Rationing health care starts by rationing people.
Tell us what you think. Is Obamacare "beautiful"? Can it be fixed? If so, how? By a complete government takeover? Ms. Pelosi is known for saying outrageous things. Do you think Democrats really will campaign on Obamacare? If so, will they have more success than Republicans campaigning for its repeal, which she emphatically rules out?
