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?
The ones backing Hitler stood tall in their support too.
Actually, for a change she’s saying something pretty close to the truth. In 2010, 34 House donks voted with the GOP in opposing obozo-care. On Friday, only 39 donks voted with the GOP. Only a difference of 5. Hardly a tsunami of defections. The donks are still pretty solidly behind obozo.
And I’m the Pope!
If she means “standing tall” as in running for the exit then I guess she is right...man is she stupid.
“These lying weasels knew all along.”
As a side note (no hijacking intended) I think it’s important to keep in mind as well, that the same lying weasels see no potential problems—no adverse consequences for the American people—in giving amnesty to 20-30 million lawbreakers. Or they believe the benefits outweigh the risks. Benefits, that is, for their Chamber of Commerce, La Raza, union lobbyist paymasters. Now even Juan McCain is re-thinking his Democratic certitude on this issue.
OK, the point: Who is paying the demo-predacritters to wreck the healthcare industry?
Yes, she is.
She slipped thru the Looking Glass and never came back..
Headline: “Pelosi: Democrats ‘stand tall in support’ of Obamacare”
standing tall as they run like ‘H’ from it.
Krauthammer said in his professional opinion, Pelosis a classic case of someone in total denial”
This Krauthammer quote is getting a bit of play. IMO, it is massive and dangerous mis-interpretation of the evil and deceit at the core of leftists like Pelosi, Wasserman, Axelrod, Obama, etc. Denying reality, lying about it, and viciously attacking opponents is what Leftists are all about, all the time.
They will lie and kill to attain and maintain power. When their Communist policies create misery, they deny the misery exists or, to the extent they admit to it, they blame it on their opponents.
By his unwillingness to acknowledge the evil that is at the heart of Pelosi, Dr. Krauthammer is the one in denial here.
No Nancy, Democrats ‘stand small in support’ of the Obamacare train-wreck!
Well that’s what you get from a woman who is a hardcore drug addict.
Nancy’s District all have Obama Care Waivers
I sure hope they do!
Yes, please Democrats, support obamacare... You know, that wonderful piece of ... legislation ... you all passed without any Republican support. Then, oh yeah, you exempted yourselves. This is a rat invention, so yes stand behind it, own it. It is yours. Time to stop lying about it and own up.
I think whoever runs against her should just run continuous ads of her repeating
“But,we Have to Pass the Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It”
And then just state “Well now we know and it is an American Tragedy”.
I don’t know who’s dumber-Pelosi or people who vote for her.
Better take a look behind you before going over the trench top, ya old bag.
Sadly, she probably does. At least for 47%.
“Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act,
Let them continue to do so all throughout the 2014 election...
She needs medical help starting with a straight jacket.
If they want to “stand tall” they should renounce their waivers and go on Bummercare. Put their health and their wallets where their mouths are.
Good. I think they should absolutely run on Obamacare. Use it in every ad, tout it in every speech, take “credit” for it wherever possible.
But Nan, dear, you are so short!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder if stretching one’s face would work as a form of torture to make people talk.
As for democrats not running from obamacare, I doubt they will. But they will talk about the lousy economy and neither will hurt them. Their voters are retards.
“Democrats stand tall”
A better description would be “WALKING SMALL”
Delusional. The ‘rats are jumping from that sinking ship. Trying to salvage their re-elections. Which, of course, is all that matters to them.
Pelosi takes the “proud” meme to new heights of absurdity. Whenever I see the word “proud,” I think, “Hmm. This person is embarrassed about something and protests too much.” Not to even mention the fact that it’s one of the seven deadly sins. But what does Pelosi know of such things? She’s just flaunting her knowledge of a military phrase and sullying further the mess that is the CACA.
I love San Francisco and the Bay area. It’s a beautiful part of the country filled with great restaurants and lovely scenery. Unfortunately, it’s also full of braindead lefties like Pelosi. She’s just one of many clueless wonders walking around northern California.
I hope they stand behind it. People are now becoming aware of waht is in it and how it will affect them. As they do, they grow a little bitter. Let us hope that by the election, the discontent will be sufficient to defeat the democrats.
Maybe not, but she knows San Fagscisco. That tactic will work just fine there.
Kind of makes ya wonder if they already know the “fix” is in for 2014.
