RUSH: We have the Pelosi sound bite. It was from her weekly press briefing in Washington this morning.
PELOSI: Pretty soon we’ll all be leaving for the Fourth of July recess. Next week when we celebrate Independence Day, we’ll also be observing health independence. This marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” The Affordable Care Act offers just that: A healthier life, liberty [to] pursue [a] person’s happiness, to be free of constraint, the job locked, uhh, because they’re policy locked. So, if you wanted to be a cameraman, a writer, you want to be self-employed, if you want to start a business, if you want to change jobs — whatever is you want to do — you are free.
RUSH: And that’s what you’re supposed to give thanks for next Fourth of July. That’s the same sales pitch that she used, and it’s bogus as it can be, before this thing was signed. “If you want to be a cameraman or writer — if you’re gonna be self-employed, start a business, change jobs, whatever you want to do — you’re free because you’re covered because you’ve got Obamacare,” if you don’t pay the fine.
Hee-hee-hee-hee-hee. According to Pelosi, if you wanted to be a cameraman, a writer, you want to be self-employed, if you want to start a business, if you want to change jobs — whatever is you want to do — you are free! That’s because you’re going to have health insurance, or you’re gonna have to pay a fine, unless you’re an illegal immigrant. Happy Independence Day!
