Pelosi Says GOP Plan on Student Loan Rate Assault on Womens Health
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi railed against Republican efforts to offset the one-year extension of the 3.4 percent student loan rate by taking money out of a fund she believes is imperative to the survival to women.
Pelosi told reporters that she is whipping her caucus to oppose the GOPs proposal.
We will not support a bill that robs Peter to pay Paul, which ostensibly supports a middle-class initiative while making those very same people pay for it, Pelosi, D-Calif., said today during her weekly news conference on Capitol Hill. In order to pay for it, [House Republicans] are going to make an assault on womens health, make another assault on womens health, continue our assault on womens health and pay for this with prevention initiatives that are in effect right now for childhood immunization; for screening for breast cancer, for cervical cancer; and for initiatives to reduce birth defects a large part of what the Center for Disease Control does in terms of prevention.
The Democratic leader said the funding that Republicans hope to use to pay for the extension, which will come up for a vote in the House on Friday, is integral to the survival to women. House Speaker John Boehner has labeled the same prevention fund a slush fund.
Well, it may be a slush fund to him, but its survival to women, Pelosi said. Its survival to women. And that just goes to show you what a luxury he thinks it is to have good health for women. We do not agree.

Must be funding for abortions.
A narrative looking for an accusation to attach to it. Nice try Nancy, but fail.
Will someone please gag that woman.
Will someone please gag that woman.
no , give her a late night show LOL
Stretch can’t keep her talking points straight.
This freak lives in a world so devoid of anything I’m able to comprehend that I’m amazed the same forces of nature that affect me - like gravity - are actually able to affect her.
I would expect her to be impervious to my reality.
You know, I’m not getting too old for this crap. But I am tiresome of this constant BS that unfortunately some still believe. When are these tired old hippies going to die? No really!
Woe be it to anyone attempting to define the lowest IQ, because Nancy, the ignorant S....enator will go below it.
Pelosi told reporters that she is whipping her caucus...”
This immediately evoked an image of Queen P in thigh high black leather boots, complete with chains and cracking a whip over the heads of her subservient male Chamber mates. Would make an interesting picture.
What the hell does Pelosi know about women? She isn’t even a woman
I should have posted #15 to you!
This living organism is a raving lunatic.
Ya'll other than whites just suck, get used to it!
Your pics are a lot more flattering than I would be if I had the talent to move the image from my brain to the screen!
I swear! Crazy Nancy must be dropping Acid.
Segue to Sandra Fluke, poor law student who can’t-get-enough of-that-funky-stuff because of us evil conservatives and our stern pimp hand. Man, don’t we feel anything?!*
And hardhearted because we won’t let 33 year old `single mothers’ with Phds in sociology off the hook for their student loans, because we paid our own debts.
Do they really think they’re making any hay with this bogus “war on women” theme? We should have an ongoing thread on crazy Democratic wymen like Nan and their wacky shenanigans.
Maxine, Debbie, Cynthia, Meghan, Shirley, Babs, Lady Di—the list is endless.
I am having to bite my “tongue” to keep from typing the words that are trying to escape through my fingers...
This lying sack of female dog feces... Who’s idea was it for the Federal Government to nationalize the student loan program? Hmmmmm....???
And the program when federalized included this bombshell rate issue from the get-go... I wonder why. Oh - so they could then use it to portray Republicans who try to fix it as somehow bad guys. Pelosi is one of the key players in this scam in the first place.
