Nancy Pelosi Recommends We ‘Celebrate’ Obamacare on July 4th

California Democrat, Representative Nancy Pelosi recently informed the nation that July Fourth isn’t just for fireworks and dissing the Brits any more. It is also the day we should “celebrate” Obamacare.

Sure July Fourth is traditionally celebrated as the day we declared independence from Great Britain, an action that preceded the Revolutionary War and set the tone for our nascent nation. But now it has another significance. As far as Pelosi is concerned it is “health independence” day, too.

“Next week, when we celebrate Independence Day we’ll also be observing health independence,” Pelosi said during a press briefing recorded by CSPAN. She goes on to say that, “this week marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. It captures the spirit of our founders. The spirit they wrote in the Declaration of Independence… So, we’ve had Social Security, Medicare, and now health independence, and that’s something our members will take home to celebrate over this Independence Day.”

Pelosi also bent history to chide the GOP saying that if Paul Revere was a Republican, today he would be running through the streets shouting “sequester is coming!”

You must read her full “health independence” statement to get the full effect.

Transcript of Pelosi’s opening segment

Pretty soon we’ll all be leaving for the Fourth of July recess. Next week, when we celebrate Independence Day we’ll also be observing health independence.

This week marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. It captures the spirit of our founders. Uh, the spirit they wrote in the Declaration of Independence: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The Affordable Care Act offers just that–a healthier life and the liberty to pursue a person’s happiness to be free of constraint, be job-locked, because they’re policy-locked and so if you wanted to be a cameraman, a writer, you want to be self employed, if you want to be, start a business, if you want to change jobs, whatever it is you want to do you are free, you have the liberty to do.

So, we’ve had Social Security, Medicare, and now health independence, and that’s something our members will take home to celebrate over this Independence Day.

    Why don’t we just cut to the chase and designate a holiday to celebrate Dear Leader?

    • Walter_Cronanty

      I suggest April 1, not just to celebrate him, but all those who voted for him.

  • LiberalNightmare

    We can change the name to Dependance day

    • Ermie West

      I agree to that. They are teaching people to be dependent to government.

    Wasn’t she the one who thought Roe Vs Wade was about the choice Washington had to make before he crossed the Delaware?

    Really, this woman is so dumb calling her stoopid is a compliment.

    How else to explain just a few of her famous quotes?

    “Every week we don’t pass a Stimulus package, 500 million Americans lose their jobs.” or…“Unemployment benefits are creating jobs faster than practically any other program” or one of her best….“I believe in natural gas as a clean, cheap alternative to fossil fuels.”

    God save us from idiots like her.

    Interestingly, THE OREGON LABOR PRESS, which represents Oregon AFL-CIO affiliated labor union members lamented that labor unions were kept out of the Obamacare hearings and testimony while the legislation was being considered. Now, these unions say that some member unions will be hurt by this legislation. So even among labor unions, this legislation has some controversial aspects.
