Nancy Pelosi Wants Ground-Zero Mosque Opponents Investigated!
"There is no question there is a concerted effort to make this a political issue by some. And I join those who have called for looking into how is this opposition to the mosque being funded,"
– August 18, 2010, during an interview on KCBS radio in San Francisco.
A huge majority of the American people oppose the Ground Zero Mosque. But in Nancy Pelosi's bizarre, up-is-down/black-is-white world, we are the suspects.

"You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting. But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."
– March 9, 2010, in a speech to the National Association of Counties, on passing healthcare reform.
No, Nancy, we want to know what's in the bill before it becomes law. That's not too much to ask. And that you should even say such a thing is as frightening as it is absurd.
"Bipartisanship is a two-way street. A bill can be bipartisan without bipartisan votes. Republicans have left their imprint."

We'll find out in 2011 if Nancy Pelosi really believes this, when Republican majorities are setting the agenda and drafting the legislation.

In other words, Nancy Pelosi sees no problem with sending people to jail for the "crime" of not buying government-mandated healthcare.
“I think they’re AstroTurf. You be the judge. They’re carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.”

The unemployment rate in the country at the time was 4.7%. Today it's 9.3% (actually higher if you count the under-employed, and people who've given up looking for work). The national debt at the time was $8.5 trillion dollars. Today it's almost $12 trillion... And by the way, "the rich" get a bum rap. They employ the middle class and the poor. They pay most of the country's taxes. Economic policies that hurt the rich hurt everybody else, too.
