    She dodges the question of Health Care mandate being a tax.
    She is a professional Politician and very good at the dodge game. :D

    The video has been scrubbed from the Internet. :( NAZI police at it again.

    Responding to a question from The Daily Caller, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi shied away from siding with Chief Justice John Roberts in labeling the health care law’s individual mandate constitutional as a tax, telling TheDC that “what you’re talking about here is Washington talk.”

    “The court has upheld the legislation. I think and I have to see the specific language that they identified with how we wrote the bill in the House as part of the decision, their documentation for the decision. Call it what you will, it’s a step forward for America’s families and you know what? Take yes for an answer,” Pelosi, who was Speaker of the House when the health care law was signed into law, said at the Capitol Thursday.

    “This is a very good thing for the American people. What you’re talking about here is Washington talk. … Technical terms, that’s for us here but means something to the American people is what it does to them.”

    In the past, President Obama and the White House budget director have said the fine imposed by the health care law if an individual decides not to purchase health care insurance is not a tax.

    Washington Talk :lmao:

    Like Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi is so secure in her seat she doesn't have to make sense or be credible.

    Nancy Pelosi, and career politicians like her, are the biggest problem in Congress today. No one should be allowed to serve in Congress for more than two terms.

    Its only a tax if you don't have healthcare.

    Why are you opposed to those without health insurance being forced to pay for the risk they will wind up owing an emergency room a few hundred K at the expense of you and I?

    Sorry, reactionaries, progress is slow but inevitable, eventually you always lose, get used to it.

    "The opponents of the mandate moved a fringe position about the Constitution from off-the-wall to on-the-wall. They successfully shaped the terms of the public debate over the Affordable Care Act. But as Abraham Lincoln once said, you can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time. In the end, the mandate's opponents couldn't fool all of the justices who had actually read the statute. They upheld the Constitution, and the law."

    She should just accept it, before she knows what's in it.
