From the mouth of idiots - ah, from the mouth of the Speak of the House of Representatives - comes this gem:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was in San Francisco on Tuesday, celebrating the passage of healthcare reform.
She received a standing ovation from the crowd at the Mark Hopkins Hotel...
The Speaker compared it to the enactment of social security, medicare and the civil rights act.
And while she said it may not be perfect, it’s a bold step in the right direction.
”It’s like the back of the refrigerator. You see all these wires and the rest,” said Pelosi. “All you need to know is, you open the door. The light goes on. You open this door, you go through a whole different path, in terms of access to quality, affordable healthcare for all Americans.”
Nancy assumes that, because she uses a refrigerator without understanding it, we should accept her health care reform, without understanding it.
Hmmm....but if your refrigerator broke, you would call an expert repairman to fix it, one who understood where all the wires went and what they did. Is Nancy Pelosi claiming that she is such an expert on health care that she should be entrusted to reconfigure and manage the whole system? Based on what? The fact that once put a band-aid on her grandkids? Would she trust me to fix her refrigerator, based on the fact I know how to change a light bulb?
Nice to see the condescending attitude she has towards average Americans. You're too stupid to understand how a refrigerator works, how can you comprehend the entirety of health care? Leave it to me, and just be grateful that you can get a doctor's appointment at all....
But even the layman can see when they've hired someone who is simply fiddling with the wires, changing the screws, and making it up as they go along, with no real clue of what makes the massive machine run. So it is with Pelosi and the national health care system.
What do you do with such a "repairman"? Fire them, and show them the door. Are you smart enough to get that analogy, Nancy P.?
