Pelosi: “We Don’t Have a Policy Problem. We Have a Website Problem”

Only a liberal progressive could be this stupid.

If you lack the competence to execute your policies, that’s a policy problem. Government is not the proper tool for selling insurance. It’s barely the proper tool for selling people anything.

A policy that depends on government trying to go Amazon is a policy problem.

House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other party leaders discussed options for a bill with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just before McDonough arrived to address the full caucus. She is trying to help the White House stem a tide of House Democrats who are leaning toward voting for a GOP bill, due on the House floor Friday, that would address the cancellation issue in much broader fashion than Obama would like.

“We don’t have a policy problem,” Pelosi told her Democrats in the private meeting, a defense of the law written by Congress. “We have a website problem.”

Much of the backlash actually now has to do with the cancellations, the website has become icing on the cake. But Pelosi is predictably too out of touch to know that.

But it takes a liberal progressive to think that policy is the ideal and that problems that take place in the realm of the real don’t affect it.

To Pelosi, policy is an idea that remains legitimate no matter how badly the implementation is flubbed. This is why the left still thinks Communism can work. The implementation was the problem. Not the idea.

    To say clueless would be an overstatement implying that she ever had a clue. I wish that the damage this dumb broad inflicts was limited to San Francisco that keeps on electing her.

    Poster child for term limits in Congress

    Seriously – does she have dementia or some medical condition? How the hell does she breathe with her head so far up her behind?

    I wish the (R)s would stop trying to ‘fix’ this travesty that is the ACA. It’s the greatest gift the Dems could have given us as we head into the 2014 elections.
    The second greatest gift, is having Pelosi and Wasserman Schultz in front of live cameras screeching about how faaabulous it is…

    If Pelosi’s lips are moving, she is lying. She is a very typical unhinged radical Marxist!

    Obama to this day still hasn’t come completely clean about the nature of the massive fraud he perpetrated on the American people, as he still claims falsely that he is sorry it ended up being that way when talking about people losing their previous health insurance policies. Nevertheless, that’s a very deliberate lie as the national registry proves unequivocally that the regime debated coming clean in 2010 about the millions of people that would necessarily have to lose their health insurance policies in order to institute Obamacare, but the regime rejected being honest at that time and instead decided to perpetrate a massive fraud upon the American people. Furthermore, it was that massive fraud that also led to Obama’s second term reelection. Thus, his presidency for all intents and purposes is illegitimate and because Obamacare was passed on a fraud and strictly along partisan lines, as every Republican voted against it, the American people should rise up and reject it outright!

    Moreover, what the Obama supporters misrepresent as being substandard policies are in reality policies not laden with all kinds of unnecessary mandatory coverage’s, like maternity coverage, mammograms, and birth control pills, that everyone universally must now purchase thanks to the Dhimmicrat elites deciding what is best for us in order to make all of us equal, as in all of us all equally poor with the exception of the political elites, of course, as they are all exempt from Obamacare.

    In any event, without forcing millions of people off of their policies, despite Obama’s false assurances to the contrary, there would have been no one to signup at the exchanges. They had to kick millions of people off their policies or otherwise there would have been no Obamacare. Like so-called immigration reform, this isn’t reform; it’s sheer lunacy and pure utter insanity! These people all belong in psycho wards, not in government.

    And the people of her district keep voting in this dumb cun* ! I truly fear for this nation and what is going to happen, and when the whole thing crashes, I wonder where this abortion is going to run too?

    I find it hard to believe that Pelosi believes all the crap that comes out of her mouth, But then she is an idiot.
