Pelosi: Stop calling it ObamaCare. It’s the Affordable Care Act. Affordable, affordable, affordable.

posted at 2:01 pm on March 20, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

Maybe if you just keep saying it, it will actually come true.

Never mind that a bunch of Democrats (including herself) have called and do call it ObamaCare, a designation that President Obama has proclaimed he is happy to own — for in these politically desperate times with both the March 31st open enrollment deadline as well as the midterm elections steadily approaching, they need to deceive every American possible into believing that, through ObamaCare, Democrats are doing them a big, fat favor. …You’re welcome.

Health industry officials say ObamaCare-related premiums will double in some parts of the country, countering claims recently made by the administration. …

The industry complaints come less than a week after Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sought to downplay concerns about rising premiums in the healthcare sector. She told lawmakers rates would increase in 2015 but grow more slowly than in the past. …

Her comment baffled insurance officials, who said it runs counter to the industry’s consensus about next year.

“It’s pretty shortsighted because I think everybody knows that the way the exchange has rolled out … is going to lead to higher costs,” said one senior insurance executive who requested anonymity.

The insurance official, who hails from a populous swing state, said his company expects to triple its rates next year on the ObamaCare exchange.

Who needs an insurance company? Nancy Pelosi has a special health care program just between her and her physician. BOTOX FOR BJS.

What is the point of this meaningless exercise. The pubs already have the House. Even if they manage to get the Senate, Obamacare won’t go anywhere. If u believe the law is bad for you, nothing will change with a republican senate. And we all know for sure that the Hilary won’t repeal it in 07. Partly because the Reid will be majority leader again.

i_am_liberal on March 20, 2014 at 9:25 PM

This is the prevailing argument now. You realize what a disaster ObamaCare is, how badly your party bungled it and that America hates it.

But you can’t repeal it! Nyah nyah nyah.

What vile people you are.

WND: But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for “in-flight services” – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That’s almost $1,000 per week.

For once, I agree with her.

Make everyone call it the Affordable Care Act, so that everyone can continue to see how much more ironic and hypocritical that name gets day after day.

That’s why she desperately wants the Speaker’s gavel back, buying her own booze is costing the family a fortune.

The fact that she is still elected is proof that this experiment of an informed, educated, representative Republic has finally failed…

What amazes me is how the people of her district keep electing her. The way she demeans everyone around her whenever they don’t absolutely, completely agree with her is frankly, disgusting. It’s not the way a REPRESENTATIVE of The People is supposed to conduct themselves.

Regardless of party, you would think people would just expect more from their incredibly wealthy, alcoholic and corrupt, “REPRESENTATIVE”.

KMC1 on March 21, 2014 at 2:57 AM

Her and Mr. Obama’s health care plan is quite affordable. Not the one they cooked up for us, but the one they’re on. It runs them nothing per month, no deductibles, no co-payments or any other out-of-pocket costs whatsoever. If her defense contractor husband or Mrs. Obama get cancer, fall down some stairs or need surgery, it costs them not one dime, and that will be true for the rest of their lives. Sweet, huh? Not to mention the lavish pensions and other perks they’ll receive. No wonder they can keep it up with all this nonsense. They have no skin in the game.

Pure propaganda, even she knows she’s lying. Check the body language, watch her eyes as she speaks.

It’s insulting that she thinks we’re all dumb enough buy that BS in spite of the law’s many obvious flaws.

It’ll be interested to hear what Queen Nancy has to say after the dems get creamed in November.

Actually, it’s now called PP&_CA.
Obama signed an executive order suspending the first “A”.

Remember when Pelosi marched into the Capitol with her gavel held high? Well hit’em with your gavel Piglosi if they call it Obummercare, errr, Obamacare.

Herb on March 21, 2014 at 10:08 AM

Oh Yes, Nancy. Please keep telling people how affordable Obamacare is. Please keep insisting that it’s affordable. Keep digging that hole deeper.

That’s just it. The trash that repeatedly vote her in do agree with her. It’s a simple case of trash voting for trash just like them.

Amazing: what a demonstration of POLITICAL CENSORSHIP — Politico has an article posted about how Pelosi is urging all democrats to run on a Pro-Obamacare platform for their up-coming election. In the comments section I posted how I hope they listen to her and suggested when they do they should remember to point out that THEY – no GOP voted for it and to remind people about all of the broken promises and lies. Not 40 seconds after I poted it, Politico deleted it. S, I posted several more statements, reminding people of things like how the Democrats decided NOT to represent the Majority of Americans who opposed the bill when THEY voted it into law. Yup, you guessed it – deleted! I went back through a couple articls I had read and at the end of which made a post or two. Every post that had ANYTHING even appearing negative towards Obama and other Democrats had been deleted!

I knew Politico was a Liberal/Left Leaning organization, but I did not know they engaged in such partisan censorship.

S. D. on March 21, 2014 at 8:35 PM

So, I would guess that Pelosi missed the campaign slogan to re-distribute the wealth from the ‘I can’t afford’ it to the ‘I got mine already, thanx.’ A more clear definition of ‘affordable’.
