Trump is demanding the passage of a bill without any knowledge of what it contains. What does that tell you?

Freeze frame this response because it perfectly illustrates Trump's entire approach to the presidency. Furrow one's brow, threaten and bully, DISREGARD THE AMERICAN PEOPLE'S MANDATE and - voila! - success. Except - oopsy - it doesn't work. Hubristic, imperious idiot.

Didn't the Dems DO the SAME thing? Remember Nancy's comments, or is your memory selective?

Oh boy...Christ's mouthpiece gohogs is about to bear false witness against his neighbor by quoting Pelosi out of context.

What fun!

gohogs....About " Remember Nancy's comments"....Are you referring to the common conservative falsehood that she said, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it"? If so, allow me to expose your falsehood to the light of truth and honesty.
*

Review the entire speech and quote the exact text.
In the speech she is explaining to the public in great detail what is in the bill: the jobs it will create, the costs that will be cut. She also tells of the benefits it will give to those less fortunate. People who are wiped out by medical bills, people who are becoming the new poor of America, and the insurance companies who profit from it.
Then she says, 'You've heard about the controversies within the bill'....(and this is the one that has been changed around), 'But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.' The key phrase that keeps getting cut out is 'away from the fog of controversy'.”
*
The "fog of controversy" to which she referred was the propaganda, disinformation, misinformation, lies, distortions, spin, falsehoods, red herrings, logical fallacies, non sequiturs, and prevarications spread like manure in a garden of gullibility by the right wing propaganda machine. You know, the "death panels"--designated "Lie of the Year" by Snopes---microchip implantation, costs, etc.
*
Let's visit just a few of the "fog of contorversy" myths.
Claim: 8.2 million Americans can’t find full-time work partly due to Obamacare.
FactCheck.or g says: False.
*
Claim: The law is a job-killer.
FactCheck.or g says: Overblown.
It’s true nonpartisan economic analyses have estimated a “small” loss of mainly low-wage jobs because of the law. But as one expert told us, there hasn’t been much analysis of this impact of the law because, he believes, economists think the impact will be minimal.
*
Claim: You won’t be able to choose your own doctor. Claim: The government will be between you and your doctor.
FactCheck.or g says: False.
*
Claim: Those applying for federal subsidies can lie about their income without facing verification.
FactCheck.or g says: False.
*
Claim: Congress is exempt from the law.
FactCheck.or g says: False.
*
Ann Coulter said: “no doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.”
*
Eric Cantor said:“The IRS will have access to the American people’s protected health care information.”
*
Obamacare provision will allow "forced home inspections" by government agents.
*
Obamacare "will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally."
*
A hidden provision in Obamacare taxes sporting goods as medical devices.
*
ObamaCare allows the establishment of Dhimmitude and Sharia Muslim diktat in the United States. Muslims are specifically exempted from the government mandate to purchase insurance, and also from the penalty tax for being uninsured.(Bachmann)

googoo: Show me where I quoted Pelosi out of context. You can't. And thank you for saying I'm Christ's "Mouthpiece", I feel very honored. Thank you.

Bingo to djigoo, now for the fellow who bears false witness( regardless of his self righteousness or public piety ) bearing false witness is still bearing false witness.

cabinetmaker: Tell me, Sir, how I have borne false witness? I await your response.

Well, gohogs, I asked "Are you referring to the common conservative falsehood that she said, "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it" ?
*
If not that, to exactly what "Nancy's comments" were you referring?
*
I mean since the article is about passing a bill without knowing what is in it, and you posted "Didn't the Dems DO the SAME thing?" in regard to that topic......isn't it disingenuous of you to now pretend you weren't referring to that Pelosi misquote?
*
You say "googoo: Show me where I quoted Pelosi out of context." You didn't provide ANY quote......but you did refer to "Nancy's comments".
*
By all means supply us with some other Nancy quote that is topical. We're all munching popcorn, laughing at your disingenuousness, and waiting patiently.

23caliber: Keep waiting, stuff your face with popcorn, and drink vodka with your communist buddies...and be patient. Enjoy yourselves. :)
