As we usher in a new era for the Dems, let’s revisit some of Nancy Pelosi’s worst misdeeds

End of an era. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday that she will not seek another Democratic leadership position after her term as speaker ends in January.

Although he is no longer the leader of his party, he will continue to serve as a member of Congress representing California’s 12th Congressional District.

It was very difficult for Pelosi. He served as Speaker of the House for two four-year terms and was a thorn in the side of Republicans.

Nancy Pelosi has spearheaded some of the most expensive bills costing American taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars. He’s also given Republicans plenty of comedic fodder over the years. Sometimes you have to laugh to not cry.

It’s time to take a look at some of Nancy Pelosi’s greatest hits — in your wallet, that is, if you’re a taxpayer.

Why we had to pass Obamacare

In her first term as speaker, Nancy Pelosi was instrumental in passing the Affordable Care Act, like Obamacare. Pelosi’s wheel-and-deal began in November 2009, and in March 2010, she garnered enough votes to pass the House.

The Obamacare episode produced one of his most famous quotes. In fact, it’s probably one of the most famous political quotes in America at this point.

Before Obamacare passed, in an effort to shove all 906 pages down Americans’ throats, Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what’s in it.”

At the time, Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL) responded to Pelosi’s ignorance of how the process would work: “I think America would prefer to know what’s in there before a bill is passed and becomes law.”

During the 2008 financial crisis, Pelosi also made sure to vote for a $700 billion bailout of Wall Street financial institutions. At the time, Pelosi characterized the bill as a “bailout” rather than a bailout. Right.

One of the main points of the bill limits the so-called “golden parachutes” for executives. Ironically, while making money on Wall Street, Pelosi declared “the party is over.”

More recent escapades of Nancy

Among Nancy Pelosi’s recent notable developments is the passage in August of what many economists say will do anything but reduce inflation, billed as the “De-Inflation Act.”

Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden have mentioned that they can fund all their favorite things like taxing corporations that pass their costs on to consumers, hiring 87,000 IRS agents, and “energy-focused climate programs.”

Pelosi said the bill, which mysteriously morphed into a “climate, tax and health care” bill, was “life-changing legislation.”

But perhaps nothing better described Nancy Pelosi herself and how she works than what came at the end of President Donald Trump’s 2020 State of the Union address.

As the audience rose to applaud, Pelosi, in the height of Trump Derangement Syndrome, very methodically began to tear up a copy of the President’s speech in front of the television cameras. When asked about it, he said it was “a polite thing to do given the alternative”. There was no explanation of what the “alternative” might be.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Democratic Whip Jim Clyburn (D-SC) also announced Thursday that they would not seek leadership positions in the new Congress.
