Pelosi: Of Course I Read the Entire ObamaCare Bill

First, a flashback:

 

Now, the former Speaker has told the SF Gate's editorial board that of course she read the enitre bill after being asked about her comments by conservative Debra J. Saunders.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi came to the Chronicle for an editorial board meeting Wednesday. I used the opportunity to ask Pelosi about her most famous and quoted statement from 2010. On March 9, 2010, Pelosi said of the Affordable Care Act, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of controversy.”

What did you mean by that? I asked.

Pelosi said that the quote “was taken out of context” and it is most often quoted “by the far right.”

The health insurance industry, she said, spent “$200 million while we were debating the bill to lie about it. … I hate to use the word lie. I hate to use the word hate. I hate to tell you, they’re lying about it.”

“We’re in the trenches fighting this out,” she said. And: “We don’t even have a bill written yet. The Senate has not acted. And that really, the president really thought he was going to get a Republican vote in the Senate… You can’t say it’s in the bill, read it, ’cause there is no bill.”

Also, Pelosi said “we read the bill.”
