Nancy Pelosi says the Healthcare bill will be bipartisan, even with no Republican votes:
The top House Democrat appears to be signaling that her party has all but given up any hope of achieving meaningful bipartisan support for a health care reform bill.
“Bipartisanship is a two-way street,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declares in an interview airing Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union.
“But let me say this,” Pelosi continues, “The bill can be bipartisan, even though the votes might not be bipartisan, because they [Republicans] have made their imprint on this.”
While I’ll admit that she raises a good point, it only reinforces how weak the Dems are on this. Even with full support, they aren’t able to make it what they want.
