House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi continues to attack the latest GOP healthcare bill.
Earlier in the week, she wrote House Speaker Paul Ryan and asked him to release the full details of his healthcare bill.
“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.”
However, Pelosi seems to be forgetting that she refused to disclose the details of Obamacare back in 2010 and was happy to tell Americans that they would have to wait and see before learning about what Obamacare did.
“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” she said in 2010 as she tried to peddle Obamacare. “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”
Remember how that turned out? Americans lost their doctors, their insurance plans, and their premiums ballooned out of control.
The last thing Pelosi needs to talk about is accountability. If you were unwilling to share the details of Obamacare in 2010, you can’t take the high ground now and expect the Republican Party to do the same thing.
