Did you automatically think of Nancy Pelosi when you read the title? I’ll bet you did…and you’d be right! The runner-up for bizarre behavior is the Democrats on the House floor chanting like high school kids (seen video below)
Pelosi held a fear mongering press conference where she claimed Republicans would have a “scar they would carry with them”…Well, ok…She then said Republicans will “glow in the dark”…Huh?
Her hands were shaking the entire speech…very bizarre indeed
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., warned that Republicans who vote to pass the American Health Care Act today will have a “scar they will carry” from that vote, and that they will be “forever identified” with the vote.
“They have this vote tattooed on them. This is a scar they will carry,” Pelosi said when asked if the House bill could be improved in the Senate. “It’s their vote, not the Senate vote. It’s their vote they are taking. So that is really a poor choice… cowardly, I might add. Why would they vote for it if they don’t think it’s worthy of support because the Senate will change it?”
Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren called the House GOP’s plan to repeal and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act a “cruel” way to enrich the wealthy and cut insurance from many Americans.
Warren said too many Republicans are treating the bill like it’s a game:
“This isn’t football. It’s not about scoring points. #AHCA will devastate Americans’ healthcare. Families will go bankrupt. People will die,” she tweeted.
House Democrats had a message for their GOP colleagues after the narrow 217-213 vote to trash Obamacare — kiss your seats goodbye.
While Republicans celebrated, Dems responded by singing “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye (video below),” the classic-rock anthem chanted at losers and drunken miscreants escorted from sports arenas across the country.
Democrats had predicted that GOP lawmakers would pay at the polls for voting to repeal and replace Obamacare by passing a bill that had not even been scored by the Congressional Budget Office.
But President Trump was ready to party.
“If victorious, Republicans will be having a big press conference at the beautiful Rose Garden of the White House immediately after vote!” he tweeted just before the vote.
For Democrats, the song was payback.
Republicans sang the same song TO them in 1993 when then-President Bill Clinton’s tax hikes passed.
Democrats lost both houses of Congress the next year.
The song was a 1969 hit by the Bridgeport, Conn., one-hit wonder band Steam.
Meanwhile, protesters outside the Capitol had a chant of their own for Republicans as they left the building — “Shame! Shame! Shame!”
Why would the Democrats yell “shame”? They should feel ashamed for passing something that was such a disaster for Americans and was such a boondoggle. That’s the shame in all of this! Republicans are just trying to fix a collapsing healthcare system that the Democrats put in place.
