Are we really going to take the word of someone who hasn’t even read the bill? Are we really going to trust someone who is a pathological lair? Either she’s lying or her memory is worse than we thought.
Nancy Pelosi was the Speaker of the House when democrats rammed through the Affordable Care Act without even reading it. The California democrat famously quipped that the bill had to passed before people could know what was in it. It turns out that the ACA, known more famously as ObamaCare, was full of all kinds of garbage and it has been a disaster. As Republicans prepare to repeal this terrible law, Pelosi insists that it has worked perfectly and she can’t think of one problem with it.
You know this is bad when Vox is laughing at Pelosi for being clueless. The dumb liberal website that explains the news to dumber liberals interviewed the Wicked Witch of the West and this is what she had to say about ObamaCare:
Nancy Pelosi cannot think of a single part of the Affordable Care Act that has underperformed her expectations.
Not the lack of competition in the marketplaces that has worried President Obama — or the double-digit rate hikes this past fall. Nothing.
“I can’t think of anything like that,” the House minority leader said about 40 minutes into an interview this week, when I asked her to name a part of the health law that had gone worse than expected.
She must be getting too old. Her memory isn’t very good. Here’s Sean Hannity with a refresher on how truly bad ObamaCare has been. Nancy, pay close attention.
Yet another drag on the American economy is ObamaCare, his signature legislation and crowning achievement. Remember when Obama repeatedly told you that under his plan you could keep your doctor, you keep your plan and that that it would drive down overall health costs to the point the average family would save $2,500 a year? And how ObamaCare would actually reduce the deficit?
“No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people,” Obama said on June 15, 2009. “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan, period.”
Well, millions of people lost their doctors and their insurance plans, but that was just the start of the ObamaCare disaster. This year, Affordable Care Act premiums are exploding by 25 percent on average. In Arizona, they’re jumping by a stunning 116 percent. Deductibles are so high that even if ObamaCare recipients pay their premiums, they can’t afford to use their coverage in many cases.
As for the average American family saving $2,500 a year on health care, the exact opposite has happened. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, the increase in health care costs for employer-sponsored benefits since 2008 is now $5,462. That is a 43 percent increase.
