This is the same woman who said you have to pass ObamaCare to see what’s in it. This latest absurdity comes as part of the Democrat Civil War, and she tosses Chuckie Schumer under the bus.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says fellow Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer’s (N.Y.) recent comments on ObamaCare are “beyond comprehension.”
Schumer caused a stir last month when he said Democrats “blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in 2008 by focusing on healthcare out of the gate instead of on measures to boost the middle class.
In an interview with The Washington Post published Monday, Pelosi noted that Schumer wrote the 1994 assault weapons ban that was blamed for Democratic losses that year.
Democrats also rammed through what was then the largest tax increase in history in the summer of 1993. She voted for that.
She hit Senate Democrats for distancing themselves from President Obama in the midterm elections, and the party ended up dealing with heavy losses.
“Some senators even walked away from the president. That, I don’t get,” she said.
Pelosi said House Democrats found themselves in a nationalized election and were unable to present a distinct message.
“We have to analyze it brutally, honestly, about what works and what doesn’t work, and not assume that there’s going to be some overarching national message that’s repeated and echoed,” Pelosi said.
She has tasked Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.), who ran the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee this election cycle, with strengthening the party’s messaging.
“It’s no use having a conversation unless you have data, unless you have analytics, unless you see what happened,” she said. “I really have an attitude that some may not agree with: You have to know what you’re talking about.”
Talk about living in an alternate reality.
