Nancy Pelosi thought she was on top of the world.
But Pelosi and her allies may be in for some very bad news.
And that’s because Nancy Pelosi just said the eight words that she will live to regret.
Nancy Pelosi could hardly contain herself.
At the House Democrats’ weekly press conference, Pelosi took a victory lap in anticipation of the Congress sending the nearly two-trillion-dollar blue state bailout bill to Joe Biden’s desk.
“I’m so excited, I just can’t hide it,” Pelosi declared.
Speaker Pelosi claimed this bailout for Democrat Party constituencies was an even bigger deal than Obamacare.
“In the 33 years that I have been in Congress and up until now, the Affordable Care Act has been the most consequential legislation that I had been a part of. This is definitely on a par with that if not to exceed it in terms of its impact on many more poor people in our country,” Pelosi added.
Pelosi’s second-in-command—House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer—echoed the comparison between the blue state bailout bill and Obamacare.
“The Affordable Care Act was an extraordinary piece of legislation,” Majority Leader Hoyer told the press. “It took a long time for the American people to understand how much value it was to them and their families. But they’ve done that now. It certainly didn’t take that much time on this bill, where we have 70 percent of the American people think this bill ought to be passed.”
Democrats may want to be careful what they wish for.
Obamacare turned out to be a big deal, but not in the way Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi initially thought when they rammed the legislation through Congress.
Democrats lost 63 seats in the House of Representatives and six in the Senate after Obamacare helped generate the Tea Party wave of 2010.
Republicans then crushed the Democrats again in 2014 campaigning on repealing Obamacare.
In 2009 Democrats had a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, the White House and Nancy Pelosi reigned as Speaker.
By 2016 Republicans held their most dominant positions in Washington since the 1920s thanks to the voter backlash to Obamacare.
But this bill could be setting the Democrats up for a political defeat.
The blue state bailout bill gives smaller checks to fewer Americans than the initial relief package signed into law by Donald Trump.
To make matters worse, prisoners and illegal aliens that overstay their visas are eligible to receive stimulus checks that working Americans that make $80,001 per year are blocked from getting.
Democrats larded this bill up with pork to pay off favored constituencies like public employee unions.
Just like Obamacare, not one single Republican voted for this bill.
And just like Obamacare, the coronavirus bill was sold under false pretenses.
Obamacare was supposed to allow Americans that liked their doctor to keep their doctor.
That was a lie as a massive number of Americans were stunned to find out their health plans dropped them when Obamacare came online.
In that tradition, the blue state bailout bill was billed as a coronavirus relief package, but in truth only spends nine percent of the money on coronavirus relief.
The other 91 percent are spent on Democrat wish list items to reorient America towards a left-wing regime.
But will the blue state bailout bill invite a similar political pushback?
That is the question that is open for debate.
