Pelosi Claims O-Care Will Create Four Million Jobs

From the Daily Caller:

Pelosi won’t run on Obamacare: ‘While we’re proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to jobs’

By Brendan Bordelon | April 1, 2014

While Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi took an Obamacare victory lap Tuesday afternoon, she appeared hesitant to make the law the central plank in her party’s push to win in 2014, telling reporters that “while we’re proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to jobs.” …

“Well let me just say, those of us who fought for this knew what we believed in and really don’t think we needed any vindication,” she responded. “We just had to protect it from those ideological anti-government people who didn’t want to see it succeed — for ideological, or political or whatever those reasons are.”

Naturally, no one who opposed Obama-Care did so out of concern for our country or our freedom.

“Taking the heat on something like that — well, that’s what we do,” she bragged. “That’s like, all in a day’s work.” …

If they can’t blame Bush.

And regarding Obamacare’s power to help Democrats in 2014? “We’ll see,” she shrugged. “I think the fight for the election — elections are always about jobs. So I think that while we’re proud of the Affordable Care Act, we now pivot to job creation.”

Because extending federal unemployment benefits, raising the minimum wage, granting amnesty to (at least) 11 million illegals and Obama-Care will all help create jobs.

“Which is — you know, the bill creates — will create 4 million jobs,” she added. “This is a jobs bill — we never advertise that — it’s a deficit reducer, it’s a job creator. And again, it is affordable, quality care. So maybe it just clears the air a bit so we can have a fuller discussion of jobs. And that’s a place where Republicans have been totally bankrupt in terms of their suggestion.” …

Ms. Pelosi sounded practically unhinged here. Obama-Care will create four million jobs? We have never heard that claim before. In fact, we have heard just the opposite.

And how will Obama-Care reduce the deficit? We have added 4.5 million people to Medicaid. And we are going to give the vast majority of those 7.1 million who signed up for insurance taxpayer subsidies. The deficit is going to explode.

How can our country survive with such people as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in such important positions of power?
