Simply unbelievable!

You can’t make up stuff like this. File this one under she’ll say and promise anything to pass the health care takeover.

On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, promoting the health care takeover before the National Association of Counties, said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

Yes, you read that right. Pelosi is openly selling a pig in a poke. For once she’s being honest, because if the takeover is jammed down our throats we’ll discover that it doesn’t cut health care costs, reduce the deficit or let us keep our insurance or doctors.

A few sentences later Pelosi makes another fantastic claim. “This legislation alone will create 4 million jobs, about 400,000 jobs very soon.” That’s a new one and it’s a whopper. She apparently makes up these incredible claims as she talks. If this goes on much longer, she’ll be claiming that we’ll all become rich and live to 100.

Don’t forget our Rep. Zack Space voted with Pelosi 10 times out of 12 on major economic and social issues last year. That’s a whopping 83 percent. Recently Space has been trying to paint himself as a “centralist.” Tell him to prove it by voting “NO” on the health care takeover.
