She's At it Again. Nancy Pelosi Now Attacking Insurance Companies

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday went off on one of her now famous rants attacking insurance companies accusing them of trying to derail health care reform and prevent.  Rep. Pelosi told reporters the following Thursday.

"It's almost immoral what they are doing.Of course they've been immoral all along in how they have treated the people that they insure.  They are the villains. They have been part of the problem in a major way. They are doing everything in their power to stop a public option from happening."

Nancy Pelosi has never been known for her intelligence or her willingness to tell the truth.  Her attack on insurance companies is just a ploy to take the attention of the people away from the real problem, which is a health care reform bill being pushed through Congress that the American people do not want.  The American people do not trust Washington to run a government health care plan.  If the government handles health care the way that it has the "cash for clunkers" program they have a reason to be nervous.  Lets face it, if the government can't run a used car lot, how can they run a hospital.

The fact that Nancy Pelosi can stand before the American people and accuse anyone of unethical behavior is the height of hypocrisy.  Again, here is another Democrat attacking an American business that provides jobs to citizens and adds to our economy.  The medical insurance industry is not perfect, but this is due in part to having to work within the tightening hands of government regulation.  And that is the issue.  Pelosi and the Democrats do not care about providing insurance coverage to all Americans, they care about the power that universal health care gives them over our lives.  That is immoral.

If the Democrats really wanted a real health care plan that would protect Americans against the cost of health care they would present a universal catastrophic care plan.   That would protect Americans against the expense of hospital bills and we would in turn be responsible for our general health care coverage.  Insurance cost would go down because the insurance companies would not have huge pay-outs to cover hospital expenses and the cost to the government would only be a fraction of the behemoth bill being endorsed by Democratic leadership.

Nancy please, do us all a favor.  When you see a pet project blowing up in your face because you are trying to pull something over the American people, don't blame insurance companies, oil companies, or whoever you are targeting this week.  Be honest and tell us that you want your way no matter what we think.  Better yet step away from the microphone and, as Tyler Perry's Mabel "Madea" Simmons character would say, "put the shut to the up".
