Pelosi: Obamacare Was ‘Bipartisan,’ Only Final ‘Tweaks’ Made in Reconciliation

Image result for nancy pelosi liarSpeaking to reporters at U.S. Capitol on Friday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that only “tweaks” were made to the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, under a reconciliation bill before it was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010, and, in fact, the process was “bipartisan.”

Obamacare, which the incoming Trump administration wants to repeal, passed in the House of Representatives on March 21, 2010 by a vote of 219-212.  Not one Republican voted for the bill and 34 Democrats voted against it.

CNSNews.com asked Pelosi, “You expressed yesterday opposition to repealing Obamacare and defunding Planned Parenthood through reconciliation. How do you square that with that’s how the Democrats were able to put Obamacare in place in the first place?”

“Actually – thank you for asking that question,” Pelosi said. “The Affordable Care Act was passed not under reconciliation when it first came to the Congress.”

“So the main part of the bill – House and Senate – was not under reconciliation,” she said. “The final version, which was just some tweaks -- I would have liked more – were what were done under reconciliation.”

“But the bulk of the bill – if you look back to the history of it – the bulk of the bill was done … on the 60-vote rule, not under reconciliation,” Pelosi said.

SCJ Roberts was an absolute imbecile for letting Obamacare pass constitutional scrutiny. It needs to be blown up. The free market is the key. Choice and portability are essential. Libtards love choice.

And because Chief JUDAS Roberts of the Supreme Court allowed ObamaCare to be implemented, it will make cutting this DEBACLE more difficult.  Typical of government programs, once started, they NEVER STOP, NEVER!

Roberts ruling that the ACA was a Tax is grounds sufficient for his IMPEACHMENT... it is time the FBI looked into the evidence that he may have been blackmailed over issues involving the possible illegal adoption of his two daughters from Irelands. It these rummors are true he remains compromised.

Pelosi is a prime example for why there needs to be congressional term limits.

IMHO, she is a perfect example of why "candidates for any Congressional office", should be carefully VETTED, in order to weed out the mental defectives, liars, cheats, illegal aliens, et. al.   And I could name a whole bunch of others.

Oh ... oh  ... June... eliminating the "mental defectives, liars, cheats, illegal aliens, et. al." could empty out both Houses of Congress.

Factually, the fraudcare bill was NOT bipartisan, nor was it "reconciliation"; it anyone remembers, that particular piece of garbage was NOT formed in the House, as bills are supposed to be - -it was generated and pushed forward BY THE SENATE CHAMBER, so it is NOT even a "legal bill" and never was.

Agreed... and after the Chief Justice of the SCOTUS ruled it a TAX Bill it became Unconstitutional... As all Bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives. The current version of the ACA, passed into law, originated in the US Senate... a Constitutional no, no. See: Article 1, Section 7, Clause 1.

Roberts may have been put under the gun, But keep this in mind. Sense Obama took office everytime a agent retired or left the job Obama's appointees would replace that agent with 4 Muslim Agents. The FBI, CIA and other agency's have beer stacked with Muslims. Trump has his hands full and need every one in America that prays to pray for his safety. Obama is as evil as Satan himself. Many think he is the Antichrist and there is much bible scriptures that back that up. We are in the time of opostacy the time before the Rapture. After the church is removed, Tribulation will begain 7 years of judgements will fall on the people who are left on earth.

That dumb bitch probably does not even know better

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
