Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made a stunning admission during her press conference on Thursday, slamming the President’s executive order on healthcare just before admitting she has no idea what the new law actually states.
The House Minority Leader was fielding questions from reporters when she was asked to weigh-in on President Trump’s new actions on healthcare; opening interstate markets and permitting small companies to band together to negotiate better premium costs.
“Can you respond to what we know about the President’s executive order on healthcare that they’re putting out today, and what your take is on him doing anything by executive order after failing to get anything through Congress on healthcare?” asked one reporter.
“Well I don’t know what he’s putting out today, but I do know it’s a sabotage of the affordable care act,” admitted Pelosi. “And quite frankly, a great disservice to the American people, many of whom voted for him.”
“We do know that there is bipartisan support, even some of the high-ranking Republicans in Congress have said we should do the cross-sharing funds that are there. We have to take matters into our own hands as to having be navigators ourselves, to say to people this is the time to sign up,” she rambled.
“The President, not having seen what he has to say, but just judging from what he has said, knows very little about healthcare legislation,” Pelosi added.
