Nancy Pelosi: Health law represents 'life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness'

By JENNIFER HABERKORN | 6/7/12

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday defended the health care reform law, tying it to the promises written in the Declaration of Independence.

The Affordable Care Act is “about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for the American people,” Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill. She said it “unlocks” them from a job to pursue happiness without the threat of losing their health insurance.

Pelosi blamed the health care reform law’s poor public support on opponents who have misrepresented the legislation.

“I’m very proud of the Affordable Care Act. I think the understanding of it has been jeopardized by misrepresentations that have been out there relentlessly,” she told reporters when asked about Thursday’s CBS/New York Times poll.

(Also on POLITICO: Sebelius: If law goes down, 'we'll be ready'

The poll found that more than two-thirds of Americans want the Supreme Court to overturn part or all of the Affordable Care Act, while just 24 percent want the court to “keep the entire health care law in place.” According to the poll, 41 percent of respondents said the court should strike down the entire law and 27 percent want the court to overturn just the individual mandate.

Pelosi also defended the legislation for its attempts to reduce health care costs, end discrimination and improve health quality.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the mandate’s constitutionality later this month.

My Comments: The old wicked witch of the east forgets to mention that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness does not come at the cost of others and regulated by the federal government.

Keep that old botox mouth flippin and floppin Nancy.

Liberty once lost, is lost forever.

Let me rephrase the above statement of Pelosi's.

It allows people to be lazy jobless bums but still get healthcare at the expense of hard working people. I think that pretty much sums it up!!

When u don't feel like soaring through the air with a plane, beat it into submission w/ a heli!
