Reporter: Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
Pelosi: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
It is unbelievable that when asked where in the Constitution an individual mandate to buy health insurance is authorized, she responds with an “are you serious?” Talk about one of the most ignorant responses to a quesiton about the Constitution by a Speaker in history. Nancy Pelosi clearly has either not read the Constitution or the Federalist Papers or her own power is more important to her than the law of the land.
The people who voted for her should be ashamed of themselves for electing someone who is as foolish and uninformed as this woman. Her interest in power over the people of the United States trumps all concern for freedom, liberty and the Constitution.
