Nancy Pelosi Tells C-Span: “There Has Never Been A More Open Process” by The Elephant's Child

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA),  responding to C-Span’s letter to congressional leaders asking to film the debate on the health care bills in which the President’s promise of “transparency” was quoted, said firmly — when she emerged from the secret meetings behind closed doors:

“There has never been a more open process for any legislation.”

Do write that on a 4 x 5 card and tack it up where you can see it every day until the next election.

She also “hinted” that holding informal negotiations — likely without TV cameras — might be the “most practical” way to push the legislation through.

“We will do what is necessary to pass the bill.

Representative Chris Van Hollen (D-Md), assistant to the Speaker said the healthcare bill had been “subjected to unprecedented level of public scrutiny.”

“We don’t even know if there’s going to be a conference committee,” he said, alluding to the likelihood that Democrats will reconcile the two bills behind closed doors.

I wonder…Is Nancy Pelosi evil, or just nuts?

Very good question, Shirely! I wonder the same thing!

Open? Yes, in a way. Open to more spending, open to more vote buying, open to more social engineering, open to more placating a single end of the political spectrum, even though that doesn’t seem to be working for them after all.

Open to constructive criticism? Closed tighter than security at a White House state dinner. Much tighter actually.

So glad my family took me out of California, and it was too expensive to stay after I went there following high school…..People ike Pelosi only confirm the old adage that California is comprised of nothing but fruits and nuts!
