Pelosi is Right

Yeah, I hate to say it, but there is at least one thing on which I agree with Nancy Pelosi. Sometimes there are things more important than keeping your job. Sometimes you have to act based on principle, even when it puts in jeopardy certain comforts & privileges to which you have become accustomed.

Nancy Pelosi

Speaker Pelosi making a point

On today’s edition of ABC’s “This Week”, Speaker Pelosi urged her fellow-Democrats to vote for Obamacare, no matter what. “We’re not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress,” she said. “We’re here to do the job for the American people.” (Has she really listened to the people, lately?) This statement seems to acknowledge the idea that several House Democrats who are up for re-election this year are in danger of losing, if they support the current health care legislation. It also means Pelosi is well aware that she may not have the votes she needs, yet. She’s scrambling.

Will those moderates who are at risk listen to their leader? Ironically, for the sake of the country, I hope they selfishly choose to ignore her.
