Hoyer and Pelosi two un-American frauds

No doubt yesterday you read that absolutely fraudulent and insulting opinion piece by Steny Hoyer and Nancy Pelosi in USA Today. Here is the statement that has gotten them in hot water:

These disruptions are occurring because opponents are afraid not just of differing views — but of the facts themselves. Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American. Drowning out the facts is how we failed at this task for decades.

I am truly beginning to wonder about the sanity of Nancy Pelosi. Has she forgotten that this is the YouTube era? Within minutes anyone can pull a clip proving what a two face hypocritical liar she is being with the above statement.

Even without YouTube, the facts speak for themselves. Just out yesterday also was the latest Rasmussen poll that shows:

Thirty-two percent (32%) of voters nationwide favor a single-payer health caresystem where the federal government provides coverage for everyone. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% are opposed to a single-payer plan.

Fifty-two percent (52%) believe such a system would lead to a lower quality of care while 13% believe care would improve. Twenty-seven percent (27%) think that the quality of care would remain about the same.

Forty-five percent (45%) also say a single-payer system would lead to higherhealth care costs while 24% think lower costs would result. Nineteen percent (19%) think prices would remain about the same.

And there is more:

As Congress has debated potential reforms, confidence in U.S. health care system has increased. Just 19% of Americans now rate the overall system as poor while 48% say it’s good or excellent.

Voters are fairly evenly divided in their views of those protesting the health care reform plans at congressional town hall meetings, but 49% believe they are genuinely expressing the views of their neighbors. Thirty-seven percent (37%) believe the protests are phony, encouraged by special interest groups and lobbyists.

With data like this, you are left with only one conclusion; Hoyer and Pelosi are two un-American frauds. Especially when they had the gall to conclude their offensive Op-ed like this:

Now — with Americans strongly supporting health insurance reform, with Congress reaching consensus on a plan, and with a president who ran and won on this specific promise of change — America is closer than ever to this century-deferred goal.

Only a complete fraud could say such a thing with a straight face.

It's super-easy for her to lie with a straight face: Look at all the Botox preventing it from doing otherwise.
