Pelosi: GOP 'Maliciously Attempting to Destroy Healthcare'


By    |   Thursday, 04 May 2017 01:04 PM

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., ripped into Republicans for pushing ahead with a vote on the GOP healthcare bill.

"They have this vote tattooed on them," she said of House Republicans. "This is a scar they will carry. Republicans are maliciously again attempting to destroy healthcare and coverage for the American people. I would hope they would realize this is very bad for the country."

And she warned: "Let's face it, as important as we think we are in Congress, most people don't even know who their Congressperson is in many places. And now they'll find out."

She claimed GOP House members who vote for the bill will be marked for the rest of their terms.

"Whatever happens down the road, the members of the House, the Republican caucus, will be forever identified with the worst aspects of the bill they passed," she said.

The Hill reported the Congressional Budget Office has not completed its analysis of the latest changes of the bill.

"What is important is the consequence of it," Pelosi said. "The American people will not know at the time of this vote what the costs of it is in terms of coverage and in terms of their out-of-pocket. . . .

"[But] we have to stay focused on the substance of it, and not the process. Transparency is a big thing."

And she once against cautioned Republican lawmakers: "We're going to make sure people back home are aware of the inconsistency of it all."
