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:

“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.

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.

    Since Ms. Pelosi is so completely enamored with her proposed reform bill, it should be safe to assume that she and all members of Congress, past and present, will be insured under the same program as the rest of us. If this is NOT the case, she owes all of us an explaination as to why they have the right to be exempt from what she wants to force upon the citizens of what is supposed to be a country of, for, and by ALL the people. Are you listening MSM?

    It is called tyranny and largess.

    Many believe the elected representatives using the advantage of their temporary power of office to ingratiate themselves with the ill-gotten gain which abuse of power provides, in deference to their oath of office and best interests of the liberty and sovereignty of the Citizenry of this country by whom they are trusted as representatives, should now be considered the domestic enemies their actions disseminate, and be treated as such.

    These Citizens believe to fail to do so is to continue down the current path leading to total annihilation of the free and sovereign U.S.A., their home and refuge from the evils and idiocy of the rest of the corrupt world governments, by providing a blank check of ignorant approval, written by inaction, to anyone who wishes to implement their pet form of tyranny as they destroy the meaning, implementation and eventually the very existence of the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    These Citizens have repeated the statement, "Freedom is not free! The time for action is upon us as the need to refresh the Tree of Liberty is clearly at hand".

    They are many.

    They are We The People…

    They drink tea
