“We Have To Pass The Law To See What’s In The Law” – Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D)

Tuesday, November 19th, 2013

Remember when then House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) said we had to pass Obamacare to find out what’s in it? Well she should ask the now over 5 Million newly uninsured what’s in it. This law is a disaster and will only get worse.

Government is just not effective or efficient enough to manage a massive takeover of the healthcare system. We could have changed some of the rules (like being on your parents insurance until your 26, and requiring insurers to cover preexisting conditions, etc.) without this government takeover. It is just a shame, and people are finally seeing what we have been talking about for the last 3 years.

They had 3 years to set up a website for the Affordable Care Act, and they couldn’t even get that right.
