Pelosi: ‘We haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done’?

Yeah, if she did who knows how low the Obama/Dem poll numbers would be.  Good thing they had the lamestream media covering for them.


Pelosi: ‘We haven’t really gotten the credit for what we have done’

Democrats haven’t necessarily gotten the credit they’re due for the work they’ve done the last two years, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said.

Pelosi, in the middle of a tough campaign to defend Democrats’ majority in the House — as well as her own Speakership — seemed to echo a complaint voiced by other Democrats, that obstacles have made it difficult for the party’s message to get through.

Obama Threatens InsuranceCos that spread “misinformation”

Adding to the growing list of “So, you thought you were free”.

Government tells a regulated industry what they can/cannot say because Gov’mnt don’t like it.

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the national association of health insurers, calling on their members to stop using scare tactics and misinformation to falsely blame premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act….

……The precise nature of the threat — as with so many threats — is not made entirely clear, so the legal analysis of the threat is also unclear. For instance, if the “zero tolerance for … misinformation” policy simply means that the government will respond to misinformation with public criticism, that is permissible.

But if the Administration is threatening to use its considerable regulatory power to retaliate against insurance companies that, in the Administration’s view, are conveying “misinformation” — for instance, because their financial analyses disagree with the Administration’s financial analyses — that strikes me as quite troubling.

Brian Miller for Congress, AZ – CD 8


Join me in contributing to Brian Miller for Congress.

Endorsed by Congress Ron Paul, let’s replace ol’ Gabby with not just another establishment insider that happens to have an R after his name, but let’s help replace Gabby with a TRUE LIMITED GOVERNMENT CONSERVATIVE.

Please contribute NOW. Help Brian “chase”* those early ballots to victory.

* for those new this activism stuff, “chasing early ballots” means targeting and contacting those voters who have requested an early vote by mail ballot and contacting them in a timely fashion just before or as they receive their ballots in the mail. It’s like talking to the vote as they are in the ballot box.

Each country recorder publishes a list of those voters who mailed a ballot on each given day. And given the approx 2 to 3 day of the USPS to delivery, there is the narrow window of opportunity to reach someone that you KNOW will have a ballot in their hand and not just be a “likely vote” that may eventually go to the polls.

This effort is vital, but it does cost, so please donate today.
