Did she really say that? Outloud?!?

[picapp align=”none” wrap=”false” link=”term=pelosi&iid=7718764″ src=”e/a/c/4/Nancy_Pelosi_Holds_bbc8.jpg?adImageId=11156553&imageId=7718764″ width=”500″ height=”325″ /]

From her statement at today’s Legislative Conference for National Association of Counties:

“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.

For one brief, incredulous moment – I actually agreed with Pelosi!!!  It completely makes sense!  Preventive care? YES! Keeping people from getting things like diabetes by promoting healthy living? Encouraging personal responsibility? YES! YES! YES! And I thought it could never happen…I had to check the temperature in Hell because SURELY it MUST HAVE FROZEN OVER!!!

And then that mouth:

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

And I realized, no, things are completely normal. Idiocy is still running completely unchecked in Congress, most especially if Pelosi is involved. Blind faith…it’s the new Democracy.

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

–Ben Franklin.”
