Rep. Nancy Pelosi seldom disappoints at her Thursday news briefings. Today’s offering: Pelosi insists that the ObamaCare employer mandate has not been delayed.

( – During a press conference on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was asked if she thinks there is “any virtue” in delaying Obamacare’s individual mandate as well as the employer mandate:“No.  Absolutely not.  I don’t think it’s virtuous at all,” Pelosi said. “In fact, the point is, is that the (business) mandate was not delayed,” Pelosi said.

“Certain reporting by businesses that could be perceived as onerous — that reporting requirement was delayed, partially to review how it would work and how it could be better.

“It was not a delay of the mandate for the businesses, and there shouldn’t be a delay of the mandate for individuals,” Pelosi insisted.

Actually, the whole employer mandate has been delayed for a least a year. The Treasury Department announced the delay in a blog post on July 2. The whole country has been discussing the delay ever since, the fact of the delay itself and how lawless it is to just gut a law on a whim.

The House next week will consider a proposal to delay the individual mandate, and to delay both mandates permanently. Pelosi apparently plans to sleep through all of that action.

I have a question: Why is Nancy Pelosi holding weekly press conferences? Do all sitting Congressmen and Senators hold weekly press conferences and I just don't pay attention? I don't think that's the case. So, why? What does she have to offer that's so much more important than any other Congressman? Does Speaker Boehner even hold a weekly press conference? All she is is minority leader. That's like one step above janitor, or something.

this hag is so perplexing to me
she obviously knows how to get elected and stay in office
i dont think she is stupid but she may just might be the greatest troll who ever lived
she, without fail, will posit the complete opposite of reality and her toady acolytes lap it up
she also excels at preemptive projection and is exceptionally fluent in strawman and ubiquitous liberal boogeymen
throw in the effects of those bulging eyeballs, distracting hand gesturing, and the slurred speech indicative of the greatest of sousehounds the left has a truly worthy adversary in their ranks

Maybe she should read it before she comments on it!
