Pelosi: Obamacare Guarantees 'Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness'

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.”

Speaking on the House floor, Pelosi called on her colleagues to remember “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.”

Pelosi explained that the law gives people the flexibility they need to pursue these goals, since it makes it easier for them to switch jobs in order to pursue their career or family goals.

    We are to believe this wench who when she speaks her hands go through multiple gyrations completely out of sync with what manure is coming out of her traitorous mouth.

      Hence, the reason she is followed by a roll of toilet paper.   Still full of it after all these years.

    Botox face doesnt know what she is talking about.

  8. Jearlj39 says:

    Tyranny , slavery and  Unhappiness for all, with a bill that has no interest in health, only total control over the individual . The neo- communists ( democrats ) are interested only in the collective not the individual, hence a communist state where freedom is eliminated and government is God . The Soviets tried it and it failed . IT WILL FAIL AGAIN. FREEDOM WILL NOT BE DESTROYED .
     Pelosi is a total moron.

  9. Samtman says:

    Of course she is  right, its in the Constitution.

       That phrase is not in the Constitution you dimwit, it’s in the Declaration of Independence and it is NOT a guarantee only a statement of the desires of the Founders.

      You have proven over and over what an illiterate you are as to our founding documents so it would be best if you NOT attempt to either quote them or cite references (unconfirmed) as to from where they come.  Actually it might be best if you just go away, you have nothing important OR interesting to say, and never have.

    It would be a good idea if the ‘Congress  woman” lived by her assertions, for example give up her prestigious congressional health program and put herself under the one she praises so much for the rest of us….and that goes for the other members of congress and the senate. That would be where the rubber hit the road (no pun intended on her face job)

    Aren’t there laws against being a politician if you’re senile?

    • 1dingbat36 says:

       No, unfortunately their numbers are legion, they are as abundant as fleas with most sitting on the left side of the aisle.  There are a few on the right…………John McCain anyone?

  12. rank says:

    Years ago, I was taught that if you can not say something nice about a person, then you should say nothing.
    Therefore, in regard to Nancy Pelosi I say … NOTHING!

  13. Ron says:

    Where are the jobs people are changing to?

  14. jong says:

    Actually since it can not be paid for it guarantees nothing.   But, then nasty nancy also believes that we should take care of every one from cradle to grave.   The end is near nancy all the people that you have made promises to will start being cut off.   The main cause is your own fault there is no more money for the bread and circuses that you promised.   I hope that if and when the riots come you and your marxist are the first to be caught along with the liar and chief in the White House.

    • Andrew says:

      Japan tried that and it stopped working when their economy began to tank.  That  “cradle to grave” scenario starts to disintegrate when the economy starts to falter and people begin to get laid off because companies can no longer keep them employed for fear of going under, themselves.   If we don’t get rid of the present administration there will be nothing left of this Country because we are headed in the same direction.   November is coming and coming quickly.  Remember what’s at stake when you step into the voting booth.   Obama has got to go. We cannot afford four more years of his inneptitude.  If not, then buy more ammo because a fight is coming, a big one.

  15. James says:

    Just like the rest of her cohorts, she is totally out of touch with reality. It has become way past time for term limits. These people need to go and without their retirement perks they voted for themselves
