Liar, Liar!

This woman was absolutely prepared to push through the Senate version of the ObamaCare bill in the House right on the heels of the Scott Brown win in Massachusetts.

Much like her claim that failure of passing the stimulus bill was going to result in 500 million jobs lost (there are only 300+M people in the entire US), Nancy isn't too good at math. With large groups of progressives and Stupak ammendment Democrats, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that they would lose more than 4 votes trying to pass it. I'm guessing that they are at least 30-40 votes short.

Just yesterday, she claimed that they would move forward regardless. Today, she's saying there is no rush. What a moron! Silence is better than outright ignorance, Nancy.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that she lacks the votes to quickly move the Senate's sweeping health overhaul bill through the House, a potentially devastating blow to President Barack Obama's signature issue.

Pelosi, D-Calif., made the comment to reporters after House Democrats held a closed-door meeting at which participants vented frustration with the Senate's massive version of the legislation.

Her concession meant there was little hope for a White House-backed plan to quickly push the Senate-approved health bill through the House, followed by a separate measure making changes sought by House members, such as easing the Senate's tax on higher-cost health plans. Such an approach would be "problematic," she said.

"In its present form without any changes I don't think it's possible to pass the Senate bill in the House," Pelosi said, adding, "I don't see the votes for it at this time."

Pelosi's remarks signaled that advancing health legislation through Congress will likely be a lengthy process — despite Democrats' desire for a quick election-year pivot to address jobs and the economy, which polls show are the public's top concern.

"We're not in a big rush," Pelosi said. "Pause, reflect."
