Remember how proud House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was when she was shilling for Obamacare back in the day? Yeah, it was that bill they had to pass before they could find out what was in it. Because what good would it have done if Democrats weren’t following like sheep? There might have been a debate and parts of it might have been rewritten or changed. They just might have tossed it back to Obama.
Nope, none of that happened!
Former Senior Advisor to Barack Obama, Dan Pfeiffer chimed in on the GOP health bill:
General rule of politics: If you have to rush to pass your bill before people find out what is in it, you will regret passing that bill

He oughta know!

And just one more for Pelosi:
I can't stand this hypocrisy & selective memory. Pelosi actually SAID that "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what's in it." https://t.co/JuyAXsSD43

Fusilli Spock summed it all up for us:
Being a Democrat means never saying your sorry. https://t.co/bYrvaO55rG

Being a Democrat also means you never have to admit to the truth!
Young Conservatives reports:
A former Obama White House official put his foot in his mouth on Twitter on Saturday when he tried to bash the GOP health care bill.
Former Obama senior advisor Dan Pfeiffer tweeted a “general rule of politics” that he clearly didn’t think through.
