Pelosi used to want to pass bills before reading them - but not when they come from Republicans

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) had some interesting comments yesterday on the health care bill that was just passed today by the House.

Today on "Pure Opelka," Mike Opelka noted that although Pelosi had told the American people that Congress had to pass Obamacare to see what was in it, it's clear she took the time to read the Republican counter bill.

She said that the Republican claim that their plan provides coverage for pre-existing conditions is not true. Mike countered that it is, though the amount of coverage may end up changing on a state by state basis because of the MacArthur amendment.

Pelosi also quoted Robert Graboyes, a health care expert at the Mercatus Center, who said that the $8 billion allocated to high-risk pools is "a fifth of a pittance." Mike observed that it seems she only reads health care bills of people with whom she does not agree.
