(CNSNews.com) – When CNSNews.com asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance--a mandate included in both the House and Senate versions of the health care bill--Pelosi dismissed the question by saying: “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
"Who gives a f*ck about the f*cking Constitution? What are you, a crackpot conspiracy theorist? I betcha you're a birther, too. And a racist, a Nazi, a mobster, an Astroturfer, plus your crazy question will lead to violence! How dare you mention the Constitution? Can't you see we're doing the progressive thing and trying to destroy America, and get rid of sick and old people via rationing? Forget the Constitution!"
Pelosi then shook her head before taking a question from another reporter. Her press spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, then told CNSNews.com that asking the speaker of the House where the Constitution authorized Congress to mandated that individual Americans buy health insurance as not a "serious question."Oh? Not a serious question? Ah. When non-leftists ask of the leftist regime about the constitutionality of something big and scary they're proposing, they get branded as "unserious". Next thing you know, they'll be simplistically, childishly derided as "birthers" or something like that. And there'll be a massive intimidation campaign to prevent people from asking the regime to prove that the Health Bill is constitutional.
“You can put this on the record,” said Elshami. “That is not a serious question. That is not a serious question.”
Just like they treated people who simply asked to see proof that Obama actually qualified to be President by proving that he was born on American soil. A fair demand, yet anyone making it gets publicly mocked and shamed.
They're going to do the same thing whenever people ask to be shown precisely where the Constitution gives the federal government the right to force Americans to buy something against their will.
Again, when the Left wants to nix something they don't like, they say "It's unconstitutional, so get rid of it".
But when someone asks for proof that the Left's stuff is constitutional, they get branded "not serious".
Double standard again. See? Oh, but it's ok, 'cause it's "progressive", and anything "progressive" is ok all the time, right?
Assholes. Throw them all out in 2010! Every single one of them!
