No Lie Too Absurd For Nancy Pelosi
She read every word of the 2700 page Obamacare bill.
Pelosi said “we read the bill.”
Politifact wrote on Pelosi’s statement, and interpretations of it, here. Problem is, while Pelosi told the Chronicle that there was no bill yet on March 9, 2010, that’s not quite accurate. Congress had not enacted a final measure, although later that month it would do so and Obama would sign the bill. But the House and Senate passed versions of Obamacare in 2009. This is a great example of Pelosi’s insider-speak and her insistence of arguing a dubious technicality — yes, there was no final bill – making her both unintelligible and open to parody.
At the board meeting, Pelosi also quoted Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s inaccurate statement and story about Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell saying “on the first” day of session that his top goal was to defeat President Obama. As I wrote here, day wrong, year wrong, venue wrong, context completly missing.
Pelosi may hate to use the word lie, but whether she knows it or not, she also seems to hate relating accurate versions of events.
