Nancy Pelosi, aka Maerose Prizzi, has her silk knickers in a twist over Senator Charles Schumer’s recent remarks about the continuing, still-unfolding disaster that is Obamacare. You remember the Patient Deflection and Unaffordable Care Act, rammed through Congress on a straight Politburo/party line vote? The massive wealth transfer/tax increase disguised as an “insurance” program? Yeah, that one. From The Hill:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says fellow Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) recent comments on ObamaCare are “beyond comprehension.” Schumer caused a stir last month when he said Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in 2008 by focusing on healthcare out of the gate instead of on measures to boost the middle class.
In an interview with The Washington Post published Monday, Pelosi noted that Schumer wrote the 1994 assault weapons ban that was blamed for Democratic losses that year. She hit Senate Democrats for distancing themselves from President Obama in the midterm elections, and the party ended up dealing with heavy losses.
“Some senators even walked away from the president. That, I don’t get,” she said.
Gee, that’s too damn bad.
