Most Americans would agree that we have the right to see what’s in a bill before it passes, especially a healthcare reform bill.
Nancy Pelosi however, is the absolute worst person to be making this point. She’s the one who famously said about Obamacare that Democrats had to pass the bill so people could find out what’s in it.
It looks like she forgot all about that because she issued a statement about the new healthcare reform bill.
From her website:
Dear Speaker Ryan,
This week, the Committees on Energy & Commerce and Ways & Means will be marking up Republicans’ long-feared bill to dismantle affordable health care. The GOP legislation will have life or death consequences for tens of millions of families across America, and extraordinary impacts on state and federal budgets long into the future.
The American people and Members have a right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in Committee or by the whole House.
Has she lost her mind? Does she think the American people have forgotten the last eight years? Apparently so.
