On Thursday, Nancy Pelosi held a news conference to celebrate the approximate 4th anniversary of Obamacare. Pelosi said that the issue is a winner for swing district Dems in November’s elections, though swing district Dems might beg to differ.

All the people who have not been adversely affected by the ACA packed the venue in anticipation of Pelosi’s speech:

Pelosi wasn’t at the podium in that picture, but watch the early wide shot in the C-SPAN video below and it’s a fairly accurate representation of how many people were present.

By my count, Pelosi said the word “affordable” 15 times in the just over two minute video, and tried to discourage use of the term “Obamacare.” The theory being if you say “water isn’t wet” enough you can dive into a lake and remain completely dry (but emerging with higher insurance premiums):

That’s Pelosi’s best impression of a private sector CEO she’d have insisted be hauled in for “false advertising” testimony to a congressional committee by now.
