Tone deaf and completely without self-awareness or irony, Nancy Pelosi actually asserted that the American people have a right to know what’s in the GOP health care (insurance) bill before it passes.
Via Mediaite, Pelosi wrote to Paul Ryan:
Dear Speaker Ryan,
This week, the Committees on Energy & Commerce and Ways & Means will be marking up Republicans’ long-feared bill to dismantle affordable health care. The GOP legislation will have life or death consequences for tens of millions of families across America, and extraordinary impacts on state and federal budgets long into the future.
The American people and Members have a right to know the full impact of this legislation before any vote in Committee or by the whole House. [emphasis not mine]
Setting aside the fact that she is right, let’s flashback to Pelosi’s infamous sputtering about how “we have to pass the [ObamaCare] bill so that you can find out what is in it.”
