Somewhere there is a padded room missing its mental patient.
Former Speaker of the House and current Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told an audience of more than 600 college students last week that President Obama has signed many “expansions of freedom” into law since he took office in 2008.
Pelosi, speaking at a youth conference hosted by the George Soros funded Campus Progress, said the President’s work with health care best illustrates his agenda to increase civil liberties for American citizens.
“Central to all is the Affordable Care Act, which we think is about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” said Pelosi. “A healthier life, for liberty, to pursue your happiness.”
The former Speaker also listed new laws pertaining to hate crimes and Don’t Ask Don’t tell as examples of legislation that has expanded American freedoms.
However, others are skeptical of Pelosi’s claim that President Obama has increased civil liberties for Americans.
