Asked About Where the Constitution Forces Americans to Buy Health Insurance… Speaker Pelosi Responds: "Are You Serious?" (Video)
How dare you ask Speaker Pelosi if her plan to nationalize health care is constitutional!
Asked by a reporter where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance the outraged Speaker responded, “Are you serious?”
CNSNews.com asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance–a mandate included in both the House and Senate versions of the health care bill–Pelosi dismissed the question by saying: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
Pelosi’s press secretary later responded to written follow-up questions from CNSNews.com by emailing CNSNews.com a press release on the “Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform,” that argues that Congress derives the authority to mandate that people purchase health insurance from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.
The exchange with Speaker Pelosi on Thursday occurred as follows:
CNSNews.com: “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
CNSNews.com: “Yes, yes I am.”
Pelosi then shook her head before taking a question from another reporter.
Or, in other words, the Pelosi-Obama regime can force you to buy burnt monkey droppings if they want to.
They are your leaders. Don’t question their authority. They know what’s best for you.
