Nancy Pelosi has come out with another illogical statement.
According to The Hill, the California Democrat had this to say:
“We should be afraid of this court. That five guys should start determining what contraceptions are legal or not … it is so stunning,”
There’s so much wrong with this short statement that it’s hard to know where to start. Let’s start with her concept that the Hobby Lobby decision determined what contraceptives (not “contraceptions,” Nancy) are legal. It. Did. Not.
Hobby Lobby employees can still buy the same contraceptives they could before the decision. It’s just that for four of them, they’ll have to pay out of their own pocket. That’s hardly making them illegal, Nancy. By your flawed logic, the fact that I have to pay for my own food means that food is illegal in this country. Now how stupid can you get?
Then there’s the “five guys” statement. Obamacare was signed by one guy and it has a lot to do with what is legal or not in the medical industry… should we throw it out because it was signed by a man? Your idiocy is what’s stunning here, Nancy.
Also worth noting is that this is exactly the same Court that upheld Obamacare. Does Nancy now think we should fear Obamacare, now that we’ve read the bill and know what’s in it?
