Nancy sez


It was just too easy and besides, you know who the real culprit was going to be if we tried to run this as a straight Sarah sez piece, such is the nit-wittery contained herein.

Here's Nancy Pelosi on the floor of the House and on the two-year anniversary of ObamaCare explaining to the world that it's not about the constitutionality of ObamaCare rather the Declaration of Independency that's at issue or something.



I appreciate his leadership in helping us honor what our founders put forth in our founding documents which is life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And that is exactly what the Affordable Care Act helps to guarantee: a healthier life, the liberty to pursue happiness, free of constraints that the lack of healthcare might provide to families.

It's done. Some 236 years later, we've completed the journey started by our founding fathers. Not merely content with inherent or God-given rights, we've progressed to a point in our post-constitutional republic where a back room deal-brokered, kick back-laden, lobbyist-written piece of legislation that nearly two years from full enactment is going to cost twice as much as advertised as when it was voted into law, will now be the guarantor of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Little did the men at Saratoga, Valley Forge, Cowpens and Yorktown know that their sacrifice was not to break free of the shackles of a distant, unaccountable and imperial governance but rather to embrace the legislation of a very much close-to-home, unaccountable and imperial governance.

Happy birthday, ObamaCare. May you meet a swift and certain death via judicial dismemberment or legislative fiat.

Second, I agree. Awesome post.

if the authors of the ACA were so sure of the "guarantee" as cited above, why do they issue waivers and make themselves exmept from it?


also, ma pelosi was cited as a constitutional scholor as part of a rational the supremes would use to uphold the mandate. wrap yer head around that one.

We can be a scholar of anything, communism, capitialism, the constitution, or history. Being a scholar doesn't mean you agree with it. Nor does it make your opinion correct.

Pelosi simply switched "endowed by their Creator" with "endowed by their Government" and fixed it all!

Thus she managed to not only nix the Declaration of Independence with one fell swoop but, at the same time, prove why it was needed in the first place.

The rationalizations/justifications behind ObamaCare render any purported benefits gained by ObamaCare moot. As pols like Pelosi and Pete Stark have ably demonstrated.
