“How concerned are you about the tone of the political debate in terms of people talking about anti-government rhetoric and so on and the possibility of violence.”
Speaker Pelosi, we the people are concerned about the threat of violence as well. We’d appreciate it if you would stop inciting these possible acts with your irresponsible statements and accusations. Further, if you are concerned about anti-government rhetoric we would suggest that you start doing your job and investigate the known corrupt members of Congress. Please.
Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer just don’t get it. Do they honestly think that calling people un-American is going to calm down the protests? Or do they really not want to calm anything down. Are they looking for coverage because this isn’t going well for them?
Via USA Today.
These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.
The FACTS are what is causing you to loose this debate. These two are the perfect example of politicians being out of touch with their constituents.
Now — with Americans strongly supporting health insurance reform, with Congress reaching consensus on a plan, and with a president who ran and won on this specific promise of change — America is closer than ever to this century-deferred goal.
Have they looked at the polls? We do not want THIS reform and quite frankly it’s insulting for the politicians to think that we are so ignorant that we cannot read the bill or know that this will not reform our system – they do not want reform – they want to replace the current system.
Ms. Pelosi it is time that you realize that most of this Country does not trust you. In fact, you being third in line to the Presidency make many of us wake up in cold sweats. You attack anyone that does not agree with you – you give away OUR money like it’s yours on back-door deals to push your agenda – you have no more respect for us than you do for the CIA – you are a liar.
Remember this is not the first time she has used the term un-American.
I am absolutely convinced that Obama doesn’t care if it’s the right thing for the American people, this has become a power struggle. Obama has shown time and again how much he treasures his power – it’s much more important than we are.
According to CongressDailyAM:
“Let’s just lay everything on the table,” Grassley said. “A Democrat congressman last week told me after a conversation with the president that the president had trouble in the House of Representatives, and it wasn’t going to pass if there weren’t some changes made … and the president says, ‘You’re going to destroy my presidency.’ ”
The White House did not respond to requests for comment.
While My Way News is reporting that Rangel let the truth slip:
“No one wants to tell the speaker that she’s moving too fast and they damn sure don’t want to tell the president,” Rep. Charles Rangel, D-N.Y., a key committee chairman, told a fellow lawmaker as the two walked into a closed-door meeting. The remark was overheard by reporters.
