Just in case it wasn’t already crystal clear to you before today, Nancy Pelosi has again reveals the dangerous mindset of the progressive liberal. They always know better and a federal government filled with them can manage your life far better than you can.
It took courage for Congress to pass Social Security and Medicare, which eventually became highly popular, she said, “and many of the same forces that were at work decades ago are at work again against this bill.”
If the last year has taught the average American anything, it is the reality of just how well the federal government has managed the Ponzi scheme that is Social Security, and just how well the federal goverment has managed Medicare. The average American now understands that both of them were unsustainable ideas from the beginning and that today both are essentially broke. But that doesn’t stop progressives.
“We’re not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress,” she said. “We’re here to do the job for the American people.”
“Time is up. We really have to go forth.”
So even though the American people have clearly said, no, Madame, we don’t want some more, the Speaker of the Nuthouse thinks it’s time for all the Democrat to join hands, damn the reelections, and full-steam ahead shove socialized medicine down America’s throat. She and her ilk continue to live in a fantasy world where we, the people, are just a bunch of drooling imbeciles, unable to comprehend what we read and see and to then form our own opinions about it.
“The Republican Party directs a lot of what the Tea Party does, but not everybody in the Tea Party takes direction from the Republican Party. And so there was a lot of, shall we say, Astroturf, as opposed to grassroots.”
And Congress wonders why over 75% of Americans now disapprove of them? And why Obama’s job approval rating is now running neck-and-neck with the number who disapprove of the job he’s doing?
They remind me of a bumper sticker I once saw. It read, “Lawyers eat their young.”
