Pelosi’s grousing about author falls on deaf ears here

Author Peter Schweizer, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution, has researched the insider-trading of many members of Congress, Republicans and Democrats. But no one abused the system more than former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Her reaction to a devastating “60 Minutes” report based on Scweizer’s book, Throw Them All Out, was predictable: Blame the messenger:

“It is very troubling that ‘60 Minutes’ would base their reporting off of an already-discredited conservative author who has made a career [out of] attacking Democrats,” Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill said in the statement.

This is a one-time thing for Pelosi, being the object of the reporting of “an already discredited conservative author who has made a career of attacking Democrats.” But conservatives put up with “already discredited left-wing authors who have made a career of attacking Republicans” every day.

Reality vs. Projections

From The Weekly Standard comes the reality of Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office predicted more people would have employer-sponsored health insurance this year  than last year under Obamacare.  Wrong. From TWS’ blog:

Now, Gallup reports that from the first quarter of 2010 (when Obama signed Obamacare into law) to the third quarter of this year, 2 percent of American adults lost their employer sponsored health insurance. In other words, about 4.5 million Americans lost their employer-sponsored insurance over a span of just 18 months.
