Ok, maybe some of you will take issue with the tense of the verb, but this woman clearly has lost use of her faculties.
Pelosi says healthcare is happening no matter what.
I didn’t embed the video (you’re welcome)…but the link is there if you want to see it for yourself. But here’s what she said…
So if Brown wins, what does that mean for the health care bill?
“Certainly the dynamic would change depending on what happens in Massachusetts,” Pelosi told us and our notebook-toting brethren Monday in San Francisco at an MLK event. “Just a question about how we would proceed. But it doesn’t mean we won’t have a health care bill.”
She went on to say that Brown has said he want to go back to the drawing board on health care. Not in my House, Madame Speaker said.
“There is no back to the drawing board,” Pelosi said. “The Republicans in Congress have said we will kill health care reform. They are the handmaidens of the insurance company.”
“Let’s remove all doubt, we will have health care — one way or another,” Pelosi said. “Back to the drawing board means a great big zero for the American people.”
Maybe she’s read some sort of classified weather report on a blizzard that will only prevent Republican voters from voting Tuesday in Massachusetts, but Pelosi didn’t want to go too crazy until the votes were counted.
“It doesn’t matter what the poll says,” Pelosi said. “It matters who votes.”

Now I sincerely we have some meaningful reform, but nothing that looks anything like what has come out of the House or the Senate.
