Nancy Pelosi: screw the majority!

You go, girl!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue’s massive role in this election year.

Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program “This Week.”

“We’re not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress,” she said. “We’re here to do the job for the American people.”

Whether the American people want it done, or not!

That was snark, that was. And it was appropriate snark, given the liberal “progressive” tendency to treat Americans as though we are children, who need the government to do things for us. To give us things we need. Because we can’t possibly be expected to do for ourselves.

And if we oppose their beneficence, we do so out of ignorance, or childishness, or because we just don’t understand.

We’re children, see.

But. Pelosi is absolutely right. If Democrats really believe in government-run, “universal” health care — if they honestly believe it’s the right thing to do — then they should do it, and November be damned. That is, I believe, what conservatives wanted from Republicans in 2008.

Pelosi is that most dangerous of political animals: the true believer. Unusual, in such a lofty position as Speaker.

And while I think the Pelosi Doctrine would bring good things for Republicans, electorally, I’ll be far happier to have ObamaCare fail — completely fail — and have fewer Republican butts filling Congressional seats when January comes around.
