Via SayAnythingBlog, Nancy Pelosi spoke to the 2010 Legislative Conference for National Association of Counties, telling them that she wants Congress to pass the health care bill, because she’s just dying to find out what’s in it:
â€œYouâ€™ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I donâ€™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, preventionâ€”itâ€™s about diet, not diabetes. Itâ€™s going to be very, very exciting.
â€œBut we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.
Nice try, Stretch. To paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi, “This isn’t the transparency we’re looking for.”
Nancy did tell us last year that she wanted to give Americans nationalized health care for a Christmas present — but it’s not too often that somebody gets you a gift with your money and doesn’t even know what’s in the box.
I don’t know about you, but I hope we never find out what Pelosi doesn’t know she’s giving us that nobody wants anyway.
Bonus ad hominem attack:
Right now Drudge has this picture up of Pelosi…
If you’ve been in a Phoenix wax museum in July when the air conditioner has been on the fritz for a week, you’ve seen better.
