And Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said this:
You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other. But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket. Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting.
But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.
One would think that being members of Congress, they would have some sort of inkling as to what went in the bills to begin with.
As for what she meant by prevention and diet and how it will be exciting, anything will be speculation on my part on how she thinks she can control the dietary choices people make.
The 'Two Heartbeats Away' is a bit inaccurate. I should have said a heartbeat and a brain aneurysm away. That's the safe money bet.
