Pelosi was for three-day “read the bill” rule before she forgot it on Obamacare

There are two ways to view this video of a 2005 floor speech by then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, condemning Republican leaders for not allowing members three days to read “a bill of thousands of pages” before voting on it.

The video is posted on Breitbart TV and is well worth watching in the aftermath of Speaker Pelosi’s legislative blitzkreig of the past week to gain passage of her version of Obamacare at all costs. It was done with not even a token nod in the direction of allowing the sort of legislative transparency she promised voters during the 2006 campaign enroute to becoming House Speaker.
