I've been blogging for a year next month. I've learned so much in such a short time. I've seen so many things that our 'leaders' have done being connected as a citizen-journalist, it would make your head spin. Perhaps I am still a bit naive, however. When I saw the Memeorandum headline from Fox News, "Pelosi: Lawmakers Should Sacrifice Jobs for Health Care" I assumed something entirely different. Now mind you, I am naive perhaps because my first assumption when reading this headline was that Nasty Pelosi suddenly had (the first) honest moment in her career. She was admitting that Obamacare would cost American jobs - as it will, millions, in fact. Of course I was wrong, though. Pelosi was actually making a reference to the jobs of Democratic members of Congress.
Yes, the jobs and careers of individual representatives are a distant second in Pelosi's eyes to socialized medicine. Perhaps this sort of radicalism is not surprising. Nancy Pelosi knows well that Democratic health care takeover schemes represent perhaps the biggest power grab that the Federal government will have ever accomplished. A permanent liberal-statist majority created by such legislation then is, for a statist - much more important than one election cycle.
