Columbia Examiner: Pelosi, Hoyer Don’t Understand the Feelings of the People

Special Notice To Nancy Pelosi and Steny Hoyer: You and your liberal, ‘progressive’ cohorts have stated your case for government-controlled healthcare over and over again, ad nauseum. You admit that the idea has been proposed for over a century. We are tired of your lies concerning free market solutions and the ‘public option’ provision that is designed, ultimately, to drive private insurers out of business. We, the people, now wish to be heard. And THAT is why there is shouting at your townhall meetings. We do not want you to come to us with more lies. We want you to listen and acknowledge our concerns and our opposition to your proposals. If that makes us ‘un-American,’ then this does nothing but prove your absolutely worthlessness as public servants, highlighting the dire need of the citizens to rid Congress of your ilk.

In a stunning op-ed today in USA Today, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer stated that the attacks against their proposed government takeover of healthcare is ‘un-American.’

They further state that proposals such as the one they have approved in Waxman’s committee in the House have been around ever since Teddy Roosevelt, 100 years ago.

Isn’t that plenty enough time for the citizens of this country to decide they don’t want such snake-oil cures for a problem that a few minor adjustments will correct?

The fact of the matter is that Pelosi, Hoyer, and their Democrat colleagues, including the Blue Dogs, do not understand the feelings of the American people. We don’t want them to simply use townhall meetings to deliver the same Obama-mandated talking points that are designed to convince the public that we should give up our healthcare rights and let Washington make the most important decisions we will ever make.

No, Madame Pelosi, we want you to listen to us for a change!
