Pelosi: Democrats 'stand tall in support' of Obamacare
By REID J. EPSTEIN | 11/17/13 10:52 AM EST
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats running in 2014 will embrace the Affordable Care Act in their re-election campaigns.
Appearing Sunday on NBCs Meet the Press, the California Democrat declined to say whether the issue would help Democrats win a House majority but said there'll be no abandoning health care as a campaign issue.
I dont think you can tell what will happen next year, but I will tell you this, Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act, she said. We have great candidates who are running who are concerned bout our economy, are concerned about government shutdown.
Pelosi said the economy will be the primary focus of next years campaign.
Of health care, she said: This is an issue that has to be dealt with, but it doesnt mean, Oh, its a political issue so were going to run away from it.

I can’t believe she gets re-elected. Doubling down on passing it to see what’s in it.
That brainiac doesn’t know America like she thinks she does.
I thought Bhagdad Bob was a male?
The clip of her saying this should be used by every Republican House and Senate candidate in their campaign commercials next year.
I actually hope that dems run on how much they looooaaave obamacare.
Hitler and his blind followers stood tall in support of their concentration camps too. Sorry Nancy, supporting something that punishes others while you are exempt from its consequences is not really something a normal person would be proud of. You commie lib freak!
Krauthammer said in his professional opinion, Pelosi’s a classic case of someone in total denial. She needs medical help ya think?
No one knew anything!
Run on the economy?? I thought the dems position is debt is good, spending is good, and there are green shoots everywhere. How can a dem run on being concerned about the economy? It's their economy, and it's great.
And the shutdown? This is their big election issue? 17% of the gov’t closed for, what, 3 weeks? Back pay for fed workers so only private sector got stung? Weighed against 5 mil and counting losing insurance?
She’s in a safe Democrat district in San Francisco. That’s how she gets re-elected.
I read that only about 10-15% of House seats across the country are truly competitive between the two parties. Nancy is a poster girl for why this gerrymandering is a bad idea. Politicians who never face any serious election campaigns can stay in office indefinitely, regardless of their politics or intellectual honesty, or lack thereof.
She’s gonna wave her freak flag high.
You go ahead and do that Nancy.
Make my day.
At the polls, they'll make a "Turkey Shoot" look like child's play!
No, I actually think they’re so scared of Obama that over the weekend, they have all decided to just tough it out, deny reality, ignore the screams of pain and the collapse of medicine in this country because, as everybody knows, you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs. it’s good for us because the Great Leader said so.
We underestimate the grip the fascist in the WH has on the Dems, as well as their ideological adhesion on the one hand, and their fear on the other.
I just wonder if plastic face would say dumb Shiite like this if she was from North Carolina.
Does she drink a lot?
