Tony Perkins: “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) seems intent on being the butt of health care jokes with ridiculous statements. Adding to her growing list of immortalized quotes, the former Speaker told reporters that ObamaCare was the Founding Fathers’ dream. ‘[The law’s critics] have not been an obstacle to the American people having healthier lives that our Founders wanted for them – like a healthier life, liberty, the freedom to pursue their happiness.’ I can hear them now – ‘Give me ObamaCare or give me death!’ ‘Four score and seven million enrollments ago…’ In all honesty, ObamaCare represents everything the Founders opposed.
