Are they saying "Our Home, Not Mexico's?"

They were saying "Our homes, not nursing homes."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi shouted over vociferous protesters Tuesday as she tried to assure attendees at a progressive conference that Democratic leaders will get the country back on track.


About 20 members of the disability rights group ADAPT began shouting just minutes into her speech, creating an uncomfortable atmosphere for Pelosi, who came to speak to a sympathetic liberal audience.

The group is calling for the passage of the Community Choice Act, which would make it easier for the disabled to receive care in their own homes instead of at nursing homes. Pelosi paused to listen to their message but decided to continue the rest of her talk anyway.

"You have made your point," she told them. "I'm going to make my speech over your voices."


The protestors didn't relent, chanting "our homes, not nursing homes," again and again over the next 20 minutes.


A second group of protestors also held a banner right right in front of the stage which read "Stop funding Israel terror."


Other audience members at the "America's Future Now" gathering in Washington who were sitting close to the stage stood up during the speech to show their support for Pelosi, clapping again and again as the speaker kept speaking.


"Listen, I'm used to noise," she quipped. "I talk to the Democratic caucus every single day."


When she finally settled into her speech, Pelosi blamed the exploding national debt on the Bush administration and said Democrats' push to invest in education, job creation and health care would bring America out of its financial troubles.


"President Obama and the Democratic Caucus have saved this country from a financial crisis created under the Bush administration," she said.


She blamed Republicans for deregulating big oil, assuring the receptive crowd that BP would be held accountable for its handling of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.


And she had harsh words for Wall Street, as the House and Senate get set for a final conference committee on a financial reform bill.


"No longer will recklessness on Wall Street be able to cause joblessness on Main Street," she said. "No longer will those on Wall Street be able to privatize the gain and nationalize the risk, send the bill to the taxpayer if things don?t go their way," she said.


She said the oil spill crisis highlighted the difference between Republicans' and Democrats' approach to problem solving.


"It seems to me the choice is clear," she said. "Democrats want to rein in Big Oil, the Republicans say no. Democrats wanted to rein in health insurance costs, the Republicans said no. The Democrats are reining in Big Banks and the Republicans are saying no."

Nancy was Speaker when the financial crises, so, did she save it from herself also? Where did this country get the idea, that the President is this god like figure who is all powerful over all things that are of interest of the media?

Bush was evil, so we had to do away with him then everything would get better.

Well, we did away with him and things are worse, so, suck it liberals.

:clap: THIS!! The Congress is more directly responsible for the economy than the President is. The fact that these guys took over in 2006 is what the Dems want you to ignore. Obama has only been in for just under 2 years, but the Dems have been directly in control of congress for almost 4 years. Deflect away Libs!! ROFL

Oh, 'heckled'. I thought it said 'tarred and feathered and drug behind an American-made pickup truck then made to ride a city bus while Jr. sang "Country Boy Can Survive" until she ran off in terror never to be heard from by the American people again'.

And I was excited.

But ,but,but to hear Zach speak, things are better now since Obama took control of things.

Congress is to blame, it has been the Dems fault since 2006, Yes they backed Bush, which was a mistake on many levels, but the country was safe during those times. You can't have your cake and eat it too ya know,No wait, the Dems & Liberals want it that way.

Even at that it's a phantom recovery because GDP is based on spending, spending, spending and not growth. We're growing govt. There was a recent poll by close to 5k people on what ideology/group was the ignorant on economics. The left won hands down.

She is the embodiment of the Democratic Party. The very face, the soul, and the spirit of the new progressive Democrats. That should be in front of the public day and night. She Reid and Obama are one and that is how we got here and what must be corrected to move the country back to its rightful path.

America is an exceptional country, blessed with resources no other country can match and the people to make it exceptional once again. Obama expressly wants American Exceptionalism to be destroyed. What he, the radical left, and the Pelosi's and Reid's fail to grasp is the America they envision is not one that will overcome the will and strength of the American people.
