Today’s Delusional Moment Is Brought To You By…

…Speakeress Nancy Pelosi for her ramblings, as she walked in-a-gadda-da-vida, on what the world will be like once Obamacare is passed by fiat [as told to Mr. R. Maddow]:

[T]he more we talk about [abortion], the less we talk about innovation and prevention and wellness, about affordability for America’s middle-income families, about access for those who have not been able to access health care before; about holding the insurance companies accountable, ending any denial of access to health care because of preexisting condition, capping the premiums but not capping the benefits either annually or on a lifetime basis; about what it does for children and young people to stay on their parents’ policy until they’re 26 years old; about what it does for seniors, in terms of closing the [Medicare] doughnut hole.

If you’re not a senior, which you are not, but which I am, the closing the doughnut hole means it makes purchasing of . . . prescription drugs more affordable for them.

And if you are a woman, women have so much to gain from this bill. Right up until now, being a woman is a preexisting medical condition. If you’re a woman, if you’re of child-bearing age and you’ve had children, preexisting condition. If you can’t have children, it’s a preexisting condition. If you have a c-section, it’s a preexisting condition. A victim of domestic abuse, it’s a preexisting condition.

So you can’t — everybody has so much to gain from this. Small businesses, as I say, seniors, young people, women, our economy.

Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer, a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance. Or that people could start a business and be entrepreneurial and take risks, but not be job-locked because a child has a child has asthma or diabetes or someone in the family is bipolar. You name it, any condition is job-locking. Think of a situation where we can be internationally competitive because we don’t have this weight on us that other countries, that other businesses really don’t have in other countries because they don’t have this expense of health care which will all be reined in, those costs, under this bill.

We cannot afford the status quo. We will make this difference, and it will make a wonderful difference in the lives of our people, but also in the vitality of our economy. That’s what we want people to talk about, not about, you know who has that number of votes.

Wow, man, that’s some far-out LSD she’s on.  Got any more, man?  Don’t Bogart those tabs, dude.


If you’re going to San Fran-cisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair
If you’re going to San Fran-cisco
You’re going to meet a lot of gentle people there.

    Gentle people?
    As in “screw me gently with a chainsaw”, perhaps.

    “…being a woman is a preexisting medical condition.”
    She surely speaks of herself.
    Being an idiot is a condition of holding a democrat seat in this congress it seems.

    If I hear “pre”-existing once more my head will asplode.
