Another Misrepresentation Spread to the Masses … The Party of the Rich in Congress are Democrats, Not the GOP
So much for the Democrat talking point that the Republicans are the party of the Rich …
Hmm, looks like it is the Democrats who are the party of the rich. As reported in the Yahoo News, Democrats represent 8 of the 10 richest House districts in the United States. Actually, Democrats have the top six wealthiest districts, Republicans represent #7 and #10.
Republicans are the party of the rich, right? It’s a label that has stuck for decades, and you’re hearing it again as Democrats complain about GOP opposition to raising the minimum wage and extending unemployment benefits.
But in Congress, the wealthiest among us are more likely to be represented by a Democrat than a Republican. Of the 10 richest House districts, only two have Republican congressmen. Democrats claim the top six, sprinkled along the East and West coasts. Most are in overwhelmingly Democratic states like New York and California
The 10 richest House districts:
- New York 12 – Rep. Carolyn Maloney, Democrat – Per capita income: $75,479
- California 33 – Rep. Henry Waxman, Democrat – Per capita income: $61,273
- New York 10 – Rep. Jerry Nadler, Democrat – Per capita income: $56,138
- California 18 – Rep. Anna Eshoo, Democrat – Per capita income: $ 54,182
- Connecticut 4 – Rep. Jim Himes, Democrat – Per capita income: $50,732
- Virginia 8 – Rep. Jim Moran, Democrat – Per capita income: $50,210
- New Jersey 7 – Rep. Leonard Lance, Republican – Per capita income: $48,556
- California 12 – Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrat – Per capita income: $48,523
- New York 3 – Rep. Steve Israel, Democrat – Per capita income: $47,991
- Virginia 10 – Rep. Frank Wolf, Republican – Per capita income: $47,281
Nancy Pelosi Thinks Obamacare is a Winner … San Fran Nan Chides Journalist for using the Term “Obamacare” … It’s the Affordable Care Act, People!!!
Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) was asked by the media whether Obamacare was a winner or loser for a politician in a swing district. Her response was not only ridiculous spin, what followed was just down right embarrassing. Responding to reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats and then chided the journalist for using the term “Obamacare.” By the way nancy, I hate to burst your bubble, but it is not affordable.
In response to one reporter’s question, Pelosi said the unpopular law is a political winner for Democrats, chiding the journalist for using the term “Obamacare” in the first place:
It’s the Affordable Care Act, people. Even though it…isn’t affordable for millions upon millions of people, including most of the previously-uninsured population. Also, it’s a real headache to keep up with the lexicon rules. For awhile, “Obamacare” was a vicious Republican slur. Then it was totally fine to use because Team Obama embraced it. Now that the administration has backed away from the term (hilarious context here), Pelosi is back to being a stickler for formality.
As the four-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act approaches, the law remains unpopular with the public. Currently, 53% disapprove of the 2010 health care law while 41% approve of the law. Opinion of the measure is virtually unchanged since last September.
Hmm, I thought Barack Obama did not mind when people call it Obamacare?
Three words that should never be used in the same sentences with Our Founding Fathers, that would be … Nancy, Pelosi and Obamacare!
How is this babbling, lying hack actually voted to office? It certainly says much about the district she represents. Unbelievably, she says that the Founding Fathers would support Obamacare because the virtues espoused by The Founders of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are also in Obamacare. NO THEY ARE NOT!!! Pelosi and her ilk will lie, cheat and steal to misrepresent what Obamacare is and they hope that Americans are too ignorant and apathetic to care.
America’s Founding Fathers fiercely held to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness—values which Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed align seamlessly with Obamacare.
Pelosi explained why the law is “very sound policy” during a press conference Friday:
To go to back to our founders once again, they sacrificed it all for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This law, the affordable care act, is about a healthier life, the liberty to pursue your happiness. That is solid policy, and the mandate is central to that.
San Fran Nan made the same ignorant comments last July 4th …
As stated at Town Hall, Obamacare is the very type of overbearing government policy that the Founders would have fought against. Amen! A note to former Democratic Speaker Pelosi as it would appear she needs a history lesson. We fought a War of Independence to rid ourselves of an overbearing, authoritarian central government. The American people might want to remember that as well.
“It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.” – James Madison
“They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security.” – Benjamin Franklin
“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power not longer susceptible of any definition.” – Thomas Jefferson
VP Joe Biden Tells Democrats, Be Optimistic on State of the Nation ‘In Spite of Who’s President’ … “The American People Are With Us”… Really, The American People Are Against Obama!
HE SAID WHAT? … Did Vice President Joe Biden just diss Barack Obama and then say Americans Agree with Democrats?
Joe Biden told fellow Democrats at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Cambridge, MD that they should be optimistic about the state of the nation, “in spite of who’s president.” Hmm, kind of an interesting word choice when the current president is Barack Obama, a Democrat. This was Biden’s best effort to rally the beleaguered Democrat troops who face a tough uphill climb in the upcoming 2014 midterm elections thanks to the policies, agenda and signature piece of legislation from who is president.
“It always surprises me when we don’t have the degree of optimism that we should about the state of the nation,” Biden said. “And in spite of who’s president, in spite of who’s in the Congress, the American people are so much stronger, so much more resilient, so much more capable, that even the ridiculous policies of our friends on the right cannot keep them from moving forward.”
Baghdad Bob a delusional Joe Biden went on to say, “I can’t imagine our prospects being viewed by the press and everyone else as being a whole hell of a lot brighter by the time we turn in September then now. The American people are where we are. Let’s go out and make every single effort not just to defend, but to aggressively push, aggressively push our agenda.”
Isn’t it interesting that Biden would reference the MSM viewing the Democrats prospects first and then calling “We the People,” the Americans who are adversely affected by Barack Obama’s and Democrat’s policies as … “everyone else”. Not like we do not know that the liberal MSM is in the tank for Obama and has been since the beginning. The media has been AWOL on vetting Obama, holding his feet to the fire, questioning his failed economic and domestic policies and investigating the all too-numerous scandals like IRS-gate, Benghazi-gate, “Fast & Furious” and NSA-gate. It would appear that Biden and Obama believe that the MSM will continue to be their own personal Gunga Din heading into the 2014 midterms.
But it does not stop there when it came to Biden’s head in the sand comments. Anvil Joe made the preposterous comment to Democrats that, “The American people are where we are.” Really, in what sense, in the United States? The American people are in no way any where near where Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and their lock-step, rubber stamp Democrats have lead this country. In fact, they more the American people learn the truth of the lies that have been told to them and adversely affected by Democrat foreign and domestic policy, the more they are not with Democrats.
A question to Joe Biden, exactly what are the people with you on? The fact of the matter is that the American people are not with Democrats and it is scaring them silly that they may lose even more House seats in 2014 and talk of losing the Senate to the GOP is a real possibility. Vulnerable Democrat candidates are running from Obama, his agenda and their vote. Obama is also acting as Emperor in arbitrarily extending Obamacare deadlines so to protect Democrat politicians, not to help the American people or America.

Contrary to what Americans were Told … The CBO Says Obamacare Is Slowing Growth & Will Kill the Equivalent 2.5 Million Jobs in America Over the Next Decade
OBAMACARE IS THE GREATEST HOAX AND FRAUD THAT HAS EVER BEEN PERPETRATED UPON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
Not only is the Affordable Healthcare Act not affordable, it is also not the job creator that it was promised to be. As reported at The Hill, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) said today that Obamacare is likely to kill 2.5 million jobs, while slowing overall economic growth over the next decade. This colossal fiasco is a nightmare for Americans and for America. The CBO also projected that “as a result of the ACA, between 6 million and 7 million fewer people will have employment-based insurance coverage each year from 2016 through 2024 than would be the case in the absence of the ACA.” This from the government’s own bean counters. Folks, you might want to remember this during the 2014 midterm elects as O-care was passed 100% by Democrats with 0% GOP support.
Those gullible fools believed that it was affordable, they believed it was a job creator, hahahahaha …
The new healthcare law will cost the nation the equivalent of 2.5 million workers in the next decade, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated in a report released Tuesday.
The nonpartisan agency found the reform law’s negative effects on employment would be “substantially larger” than what it had previously anticipated.
It said the equivalent of 2.3 million workers would be lost by 2021, compared to its previous estimate of 800,000, and that 2.5 million workers would be lost by 2024. It also projected that labor force compensation would be reduced by 1 percent from 2017 to 2024 — twice its previous estimate.
Although the CBO projects that total employment and compensation will increase over the coming decade, that increase will be smaller than it would have been in the absence of the healthcare law.
The findings immediately roiled the debate over the healthcare law on Capitol Hill ahead of this year’s midterm elections.
Remember when then Speaker of the House Nanacy Pelosi (CA-D) told us that Obamacare was not just about health security but it was also about jobs? She stated that Obamacare was a job creator and would create 4 million jobs and 400,000 jobs immediately? LIAR!!! You can watch the longer version of Pelosi’s lies on Obamacare HERE. What a pack of lies these people told to the American people and it was this fraud, along with other that got Barack Obama, the worst president in modern times, reelected.
CBO Delivers Sends Death Blow to Obamacare … you live by the CBO and you die by it as well.
Watch Rep. Nancy Pelosi (CA-D) Spin Through Her Teeth, Stumble & Stammer as She Tries to Rewrite What She Previously Promised in Obamacare
Good grief, House Democrat Minority Leader sounded like Porky Pig this morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ as she struggled to defend her past words and promises.
It was not meant to be a trick or gotcha question, but David Gregory confounded Pelosi on NBC’s Meet the Press’ when she was asked a simple question regarding keeping her promises the the American People. But for moonbat Nancy Pelosi, she could not seem to even muster a lame apology like Obama. Not for this liberal progressive true believer. She did her best Harry Houdini trying to contort and twist out of a straight jacket and Bill Clinton in parsing her words. Isn’t it interesting that she now uses the words, “there isn’t anything in the law,” as opposed to, “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” I hardly think the millions of individuals who have lost their insurance coverage in California Ms. Pelosi care about semantics.
“Let me commend the president. He’s gracious and he’s taking responsibility but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything in the law that said if you like what had before 2010 you couldn’t keep it.”
But wait, that is not what Nancy Pelosi said in the past. From The Weekly Standard comes San Fran Nan getting busted in a lie. But then again what should we expect from Democrats who have been caught in a major lie with Obamacare making promises to the American people they very well knew was not true. What is amazing is that her web site even to this day says, “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”
“Did I ever tell my constituents that if they liked their plan they could keep it?” Pelosi asked. “I would have if I’d ever met anybody who liked his or her plan. But that was not my experience.”
In fact, Pelosi said in 2009: “If you like what you have, you can keep it.” Pelosi’s website still states: “Keep your doctor, and your current plan, if you like them.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Says Glitches & Technical Problems in Rollout of Obamacare Trainwreck Were “Unacceptable”
If it looks like a train wreck, sounds like a train wreck and operates like a train wreck … ITS A TRAIN WRECK!!!
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says that the glitches and technical problems that have plagued the rollout of President Obama’s landmark health reform law were “unacceptable” and have to be fixed. Actually Nancy, the fact that this law was forced down the throats of the American people on a partisan Democrat vote is unacceptable. Pelosi can also be heard in the video below in her hyper-partisan tone that both sides were not equally to blame for the government shutdown and her ad hominem attacks against those who are for less government, wasteful spending.
Previously, former Obama Press Secretary Robert Gibbs called the rollout “Excruciatingly Embarrassing” and some one needed to be fired.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Sunday that the glitches and technical problems that have plagued the rollout of President Obama’s landmark health reform law were “unacceptable” and have to be fixed.
“As far as the Affordable Care Act, as I call it, the fact is, that, yes, what has happened is unacceptable in terms of the glitches,” Pelosi told ABC News’s “This Week.”
“This has to be fixed, but what doesn’t have to be fixed is the fact that tens of millions of more people will have access to affordable, quality healthcare. That no longer having a preexisting medical condition will bar you from getting affordable care,” Pelosi said.
Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that the online insurance exchanges have created enrollment forms that misreport family members, create duplicate entries, or clear important data fields.

John Kerry: He Was For Assad, Before He was Against Him and Called Him Hitler … Kerry Seen in Pic Dining with Assad
How many of you would have had dinner with Adolf Hitler or Saddam Hussein?
Talk about your embarrassing pics and a lack of credibility. The UK Daily Mail has a 2009 photo of John Kerry having a pleasant dinner with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and their wives. As reported at the Weekly Standard, Kerry has met with Assad on numerous occasions and once lauded Assad in 2011 as being a “very generous”. Hmm, that is a far cry from what Kerry is saying these days. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State has a severe credibility issue. I guess Kerry was for Assad before he was against him. How is it that Kerry goes from an intimate dinner for four to calling him the Hitler of our time. Really? I mean seriously, how many get to dine with Hitler? And this is the guy who is trying to sell us on attacking Syria?
Once again we see John Kerry, reporting for duty or is it reporting for dinner?
An astonishing photograph of John Kerry having a cozy and intimate dinner with Bashar al-Assad has emerged at the moment the U.S Secretary of State is making the case to bomb the Syrian dictator’s country and remove him from power.
Kerry, who compared Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein yesterday, is pictured around a small table with his wife Teresa Heinz and the Assads in 2009.
Assad and Kerry, then a Massachusetts senator, lean in towards each other and appear deep in conversation as their spouses look on.
A waiter is pictured at their side with a tray of green drinks, believed to be lemon and crushed mint
The picture was likely taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus, when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss finding a way forward for peace in the region.
Well, I personally believe that — I mean, this is my belief, okay?” Kerry said. “But President Assad has been very generous with me in terms of the discussions we have had. And when I last went to — the last several trips to Syria — I asked President Assad to do certain things to build the relationship with the United States and sort of show the good faith that would help us to move the process forward.”
Looks like John Kerry has protesters at his home telling him “Hands off Syria” and it does not look like a Tea Party rally.
Hey, and go to Patterico’s Pontification … look who is shaking the hand of Assad, it is none other than two faced Nancy Pelosi. I guess she had to shake his hand in order to see what a miserable, murderous dictator he was.
Nancy Pelosi says, I Don’t Want to Be Speaker Again … it’s not my bag, baby.
Nancy Pelosi, otherwise known as SanFran Nan, told the National Journal that she was not interested in being the Speaker of the House again, been there done that. We can only hope that Pelosi or any other Democrat for that fact does not become Speaker in 2014 or in the next decade. It was Pelosi and the Democrat controlled House and Senate along with President Barack Obama who brought us the train wreck known as Obamacare and the disastrous job recovery. Good grief, do we really need more of, “we need to pass the bill in order for you to find out what is in it.”
NJ It’s become something of a pastime in D.C. for people to feel bad for Speaker John Boehner for having an unwieldy caucus. Do you feel for him?
PELOSI I don’t comment on their caucus, their leadership, or the rest of it. He’s the speaker of the House. I respect the job. The position that he holds is a very exalted one. I wish his members would respect his position as much as I do. But if the purpose of your call is for me to get in sniping at the Republicans on how they do their business, I will talk about how it affects the American people.
NJ Do you want to be speaker again?
PELOSI No, that’s not my thing. I did that.
Remember when Nancy Pelosi sang the praises of Obamacare?
UPDATE I: The Hill is reporting that Pelosi’s office is pushing back on the reports that the former Speaker does not want the gavel again. I beg you America, do not let this woman or any Democrat near the Speaker’s gavel.
National Journal ran an update Friday afternoon indicating that the actual question was worded slighted less directly — “Do you wish for the chance for the Speaker position again?” — but the publication did not change the text of the article.
“The recorded audio file supports the edited transcript,” the magazine said.
Pelosi’s office said the difference in wording is significant, and Hammill argued that Pelosi was somewhat dismissive of the question because it suggested she was fighting to win back the majority for individual gain. The fight, Hammill said, is much larger than her.
“Leader Pelosi is working hard to win back a Democratic Majority and has long answered press questions by saying what’s important is Democrats winning the House back,” he said.
Easter Sunday, a Day of Rest … Not For Democrat as Obama, Pelosi, McAuliffe Issue Easter Sunday Fundraising Appeals
What ever happened to separation of Church and State?
The Democrats just have no shame and no understanding that there needs to be a day of rest from their political begging for money. Sunday, a day of rest from the political beg for money? Nope, not for Democrats. Then again, they believe that Democrat party politics is a religion. As reported at the Washington Times, at least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday. They went so far as to have the DCCC send out an updated fundraising email from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter … “We could really do this! If we can hit 200,000 donations before tonight’s FEC deadline, it would send a blistering message to Speaker Boehner and the Republicans. Donate $3 before MIDNIGHT and your gift will be triple-matched.” Good grief, give it a rest. What would Jesus say?
Easter Sunday is not a day of rest for the Democrats’ moneychangers. At least three top party officials dispatched fundraising emails Sunday in their bid to reach loyal Democrats in between church and Easter dinner.
It’s just the latest sign that politics and fundraising have become as regular as shopping at Sears or Walmart, which also open on Easter.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Sunday morning sent out an updated fundraising note from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi that didn’t even mention Easter.
Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) says Democrats are “in the red” and are broke. That’s ok Debbie, thanks to Barack Obama and Democrats, so is America.
