House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday evening that the 2010 healthcare law, which prompted complaints from conservatives that Democrats far exceeded their constitutional authority, actually helps people meet the goal outlined in the Declaration of Independence, which promotes mankind’s rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness; just HOW does Rep. Pelosi equate that to mandatory health care insurance? How does she equate unalienable right from a “Creator” to forced health insurance created by Congress and the President of the United States? BTW, you can bet your bottom dollar that John Hancock actually read the Declaration of Independence before he so boldly affixed his signature to it as did all the signatories.
She once again proves beyond doubt she is insane! The life, liberty and the “pursuit” of happiness of each individual to work toward those goals; in no way does it call for collectivism to just grant those things and in this case this health care business to someone with someone else paying for it. She needs to seek funds for a study on whether Botox has a link to dementia!
Are you kidding, Nancy? Love how you conveniently invoke the founding fathers when speaking of the horrific piece of socialistic sludge you forced down our throats. They are certainly doing 360s in their graves as you intend to steal our life (death panels) liberty (bureaucrats controlling our health decisions) and pursuit of happiness!
Like you, if those seniors in congress had to be on Obamacare….it never would have passed….it is a death sentence for Americans over 70!!
Nancy is a liar and would not know the Declaration if it hit her in the face. Time for this snake oil salesman to leave congress. Nancy, the Declaration also states “That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their safety and happiness.” The Declaration does not say that the government can do what it wants but it must do what the people want or else the government will be abolished or altered. Removing you, Reid and Obama should alter the government enough and by the way the people did not and have never wanted obamacare, therefore you do not have consent of the people for your unlawful bill.
She, like many others, neglects the complete statement in the Declaration. “…That to secure these rights, Government are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, – That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing it powers, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.” The People never consented to Obamacare and the Wicked Witch of the West damn well knows it.
This clueless hag forgot what she said you have to pass obamanannycare to find out what’s,, but yes Nancy you progressive liberals passed it, and we the people think it sinks,, and you liberals lied to the people and its costing we the people 1.7 trillion you liberal try to hide, and to have you liberal mandate we the people to buy government controlled Obamanannycare, and over 3 million will lose the insurance policies and force into Obamanannycare.
Nancy remains exemplary of the liberal’s ignorance of this Country’s founding, and/or the importance and meaning of the words within our basic documents.
She and every liberal should be embarrassed by her comments. But they are all just as ignorant and untruthful as she is.
