On Meet the Press this morning, Nancy Pelosi was shown a video of her own words from June of 2009: “What we’re talking about is affordable, quality, accessible health care for all Americans. It’s about choice, if you like what you have and want to keep it, you have the choice to do that.”

Called on it, Pelosi then re-framed what she said and tried to explain why her statement was not incorrect:

Pelosi also said Dems will “stand tall” behind Obamacare next year:

“I don’t think you can tell what will happen next year [at the polls],” she said, “but I will tell you this: Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act.”

Except the ones facing tough re-election battles next year, because 90 percent of Dems who voted for the Upton bill fall into that category.

Pelosi must be planning to give “I heart Obamacare” Pez dispensers pre-loaded with Paxil to all Dems up for re-election next year.
