Now while I may not know what it is, exactly, that Nancy Pelosi has been smokin’, snortin’ or shootin’ up, what I do know is that her remarks from earlier in the week would definitely seem to indicate that whatever it is it most certainly is some pretty potent stuff. So what was it that she said that makes clear she’s on drugs? Well, it was when this leftwing dingbat rather boldly declared, “Democrats are for securing our borders.” She made those remarks in the context of attempting to make the argument for why Americans should support her in opposing one of President Trump’s primary immigration policies, the building of ‘The Wall.’
Pelosi made those remarks about the border and immigration policy in a statement that started out by making the case against an op-ed by President Trump that was published earlier this week in USA Today opposing the “Medicare for All” plan. And it was in trying to back up her idiotic statements about immigration that she did what so many in her party have done before her, by invoking President Reagan. In her statement she said, “On immigration, Democrats are for securing our borders, protecting Dreamers, opposing the Trump Administration’s family separation policy and passing bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”
And it was from there that she went on to say, “As President Reagan said in his last speech as President, ‘Thanks to each wave of new arrivals to this land of opportunity, we’re a nation forever young, forever bursting with energy and new ideas, and always on the cutting edge, always leading the world to the next frontier. This quality is vital to our future as a nation. If we ever closed the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost.’” But what Reagan was talking about was those who wish to come to America and become ‘Americans’ not those who willfully break our laws by sneaking into our country in search of a free ride.
And then on the subject of “Medicare for All” that’s something spelled out a bill sponsored by that self described socialist, and failed presidential candidate, Bernie Sanders. And it’s on his website that old Bernie says: “The only long-term solution to America’s health care crisis is a single-payer national health care program.” Yes, because such a thing has worked so well in Canada and Great Britain, as well as in so many other countries. And so what follows here is the full text of Pelosi’s statement about President Trump’s position on “Medicare for All” and her position on immigration. You can judge for yourself if she’s telling the truth:
“President Trump’s USA Today Op-Ed is the latest pronouncement of dishonesty from Republicans desperate to hide the truth about the past two years of GOP attacks on Medicare, on protections for pre-existing conditions, and on affordable health care.
The facts are these:
President Trump’s Justice Department is in federal court backing a Republican lawsuit to strike down protections for 130 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.
Every year of his presidency, House Republicans’ budget proposals have called for approximately $500 billion in cuts to Medicare and at least $1 trillion cut from Medicaid, which seniors rely on for long-term care.
And while the Affordable Care Act endures because of the outcry of the American people, Republicans have done everything they can to sabotage Americans’ health coverage, driving up premiums across America, and have refused to take action to address the rising cost of prescription drugs.
Because they know they cannot defend their abysmal record on the health care and other kitchen table issues that matter most to hard-working Americans, Republicans want to distract and divide with false attacks on Democrats’ positions. On immigration, Democrats are for securing our borders, protecting Dreamers, opposing the Trump Administration’s family separation policy and passing bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform. As President Reagan said in his last speech as President, ‘Thanks to each wave of new arrivals to this land of opportunity, we’re a nation forever young, forever bursting with energy and new ideas, and always on the cutting edge, always leading the world to the next frontier. This quality is vital to our future as a nation. If we ever closed the door to new Americans, our leadership in the world would soon be lost.’
Republicans are for the special interests. Democrats are For The People: lower health care costs and prescription drug prices, increase pay through strong economic growth by rebuilding America, and clean up corruption to make Washington work for the American people.
In order to achieve health care for all Americans, Democrats will build on the foundation of the Affordable Care Act for quality, affordable and accessible health care, and fight efforts to cut Medicare and Medicaid. And we will continue to fight the Republican assault on a healthy America.”
So are we to believe Pelosi that she and her fellow Democrats are actually in favor of securing our southern border? Because I gotta tell ya, if you’re willing to buy that garbage then I’ve got some prime oceanfront property in Arizona that I can let you have real cheap. But let’s say, just for the sake of argument, that Pelosi is right? Wouldn’t that mean that Democrats are racist? Because I distinctly remember hearing, more than at least a thousand times, that anyone who is in favor of stopping border crossings is nothing short of a full-blown racist, and essentially a closet member of the Klan. There can be no other explanation.
And I find it a rather remarkable feat that she was able pack so many lies into what was a relatively small amount of words. It takes an exceptional liar to pull something like that off, even for a Democrat. She puts forward the claim that “on immigration, Democrats are for securing our borders.” Now while I mean no disrespect to Pelosi, that, my friends, is a…LIE! And she claims Democrats are for “protecting Dreamers.” But that too is a lie, at least in part. Because when President Trump tried to help the ‘Dreamers’, which I opposed, the Democrats wanted no part of it. If they were serious about this, they would have been willing to work a deal.
All kidding aside about how it may be drugs causing Pelosi to blatantly lie about how the Democrats are now supposedly in favor of strengthening our southern border, I think most intelligent American realize that her claim is based on something much more basic. That being, of course, nothing more than politics. And as we get nearer to the midterm elections we need to be prepared to hear all manner of lie and not just from Pelosi but from any Democrat running for higher office. And not just about immigration or ‘Medicare for all.’ After all, if we have learned anything from watching these people, it’s that they will lie about everything.
