Nancy Pelosi: Hey, quit your job. We got your back!

Nancy Pelosi spoke at the Asian American and Pacific Islanders Summit on Capitol Hill last Friday, informing them that because of the new health care reform, they would no longer be “job locked.” Here’s the quote:

“We see it as an entrepreneurial bill,” Pelosi said, “a bill that says to someone, if you want to be creative and be a musician or whatever, you can leave your work, focus on your talent, your skill, your passion, your aspirations because you will have health care.”

That’s right. Did you know that you could just… not work? Utopia! Sit at home and paint. Sculpt. Dance. Play your harp on SoCal streets naked. Live the dream! Those evil rich people will totally just pick up the slack, too. They’ve got an endless supply of cash, and they shouldn’t be reaping their own rewards anyway, right? Just raise their taxes! What’s another tax hike for the sake of art?

No, I’m not exaggerating. Watch for yourself.

Translation: Just give your soul to the Democratic party and you’re golden! No need for these silly jobs – we have no idea how to create them anyway!

Slip of the tongue? Moment of weakness? Pandering? No. It’s a theme. Princess Pelosi in March:

“Think of an economy where people could be an artist or a photographer or a writer without worrying about keeping their day job in order to have health insurance.”

Democrats don’t care about jobs. They care about owning people and controlling everything they can find a way to control. This empty “follow your heart, you deserve it, we got your back” talk is disgusting and manipulative.

Just to break it down: They forgot to figure out how to pay for Obamatopia in the “fog of controversy” leading up to the vote. You may not be able to quit your job… but count on the high taxes and increased unemployment. Again.
