Speaker of the House--- Democrat, Nancy Pelosi , is telling people to quit their job and responsibilities?

"We see it as an entrepreneurial bill, a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care."

So they will have health care. Who will put gas in their car, pay the bills, and feed their family?

Is their a shortage in our nation of artists and musicians?

  • I am so not surprised! And... after they quit their jobs, they will not only get health care, but food stamps, and cash assistance to boot (if they have kids). Way to go Pelosi, you are nuttier than a fruit cake, but the people of this nation just let you run your stupid agendas anyway! What is up with that??

  • That is fine for those on a trust fund for the rest of their income who thought they needed a job to get health care, but what about those who won't eat without additional government assistance. I predict that you will see a rise in college students taking off a year to travel Europe too, since they won't have to qualify as full time students to stay of their parents health insurance. Wonderful benefit for those who have extra money laying around to do things like travel Europe. But how can a sane person stand up and say something like this to regular people? So disconnected from reality!

  • does anyone realize that most of the healthcare reforms dont go into effect until 2014? what are these people supposed to do until then? and does anyone realize that the government is not going to provide healthcare, but only regulate some prices and make it slightly easier for those with previous conditions to get coverage? not only that, but if you dont buy some sort of healthcare, they are going to fine you? thay havent made it better or easier, just manditory. one more loss of freedom. think people!!!! whats wrong with the way canada does it, by capping prices and doctors salary, to keep the cost in check. we need strict regulations on the fraud that goes on within the system, not to be forced to buy healthcare at the same exploded ridiculous cost! screw the government. and screw the ignorant majority for letting them do it, all of us ought to be ashamed of ourselves.

  • I would want to hear the whole context of what she said, but just that little snippet really reeks of irresponsibility. There is scarcely a thing this woman does that doesn't make my blood boil. And what happens when we don't have enough tax payers to provide health care coverage for those that are too busy developing their 'talents'? I wonder if medical professionals will start accepting starving artist paintings in lieu of payment for treatment? Somehow, I doubt it. Unless of course their own mortgage companies will do the same.
