Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi told an audience yesterday that it was necessary to pass the health care bill to see what was in it away from what she termed the “fog of Washington”.
Does Pelosi actually think that she can convince the public that if they take Washington out of the equation they will like what they see in the health care bill? Where is the transparency in that?
She knows that she really needs to explain what is in the bill but doing so would be its undoing so now she is on a campaign that in essence is a trust me you’ll like it effort at a time Congressional approval ratings are in the tank.
This is either a move born of deperation or delusion or both, but in either case it is bound to fail.
