So, now Pelosia is using the old Clinton dodge of “what is the meaning of ‘is’ ?”. Remember when he hung his defense upon “the meaning of ‘is’?” . His obfuscation of his testimony was only the beginning for Democrats. Now, Pelosi is reaching out to redefine bi-partisanship for her own, political advancement….and, that of President Obama.
So, with the “new” definition of bi-partisanship, Democrats claim they do not need Republican votes to make the reconciliation be bi-partisan. After all, Pelosi claims that conservatives had their chance……….to talk! Of course, Democrats didn’t accept anything that the conservatives were talking about, but, hey, they had “their chance”. Thus, the bill becomes bi-partisan without the need for anything except Democrats’ votes.
Pelosi: GOP has had its day; confident Dems can come together
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that Republicans have left their mark on the healthcare bill and should accept that the bill will go forward.
“They’ve had plenty of opportunity to make their voices heard,” she said on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning. “Bipartisanship is a two-way street. A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes. Republicans have left their imprint.”
Pelosi is probably the most arrogant member of Congress. She calls tea-baggers, Americans who happen to disagree with her, “astroturf”. She tells her fellow Democrats that they should put their re-election aside and vote for this bill. (What would happen if HER job were at stake?) And, now, she is busy creating new definitions for words that don’t suit her!
This is why Congress’ approval is down to about 10%! This is why American citizens, not only tea-baggers, are angry and demanding to be heard. This is Congress at its worst –the epitome of arrogance.
