Another "You'll Have To Pass It To Find Out What's In It" bill from Pelosi. 1800 pages voted on by proxy. It's so smelly that 14 Democrats voted against it.

It's emerging just what is in the bill, such a money for illegal aliens, massive prisoner releases, outlaws voter ID, hundreds millions to local governments that haven't even requested it, billions to the postal service. The bill was essentially drafted by Pelosi without any hearings or discussions.

DOA in the Senate.

Pass it to find out? What an old fable. Even then, one had to see the real passed bill to cut the lies. I expect as much now.

Here is her quote from a text of her remarks. "But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

That is correct. The context is why she said that. Snopes: "Although the point was not made clearly or explicitly, the sense of Pelosi’s remarks was that the benefits (in her view) of the bill — rather than the contents of the bill — would only be fully revealed to the public after the legislation was passed and implemented.

Pelosi explained and defended her 2010 remarks in June 2012 during a meeting with op-ed writers, as reported by the Washington Post"

Gary, would you be agreeable to explaining how Trump's remarks about the virus being the Democrats new hoax were also taken out of context? Check Snopes.

Bosco - The Pelosi comment was taken so far with the seeming intent to prove that she never read the bill or the law. Trump's hoax comments were confusing to me until combined with other comments from his family and that only confused the matter

more. I see your point about remarks being taken too far by others, so if it were my call I would give some points to the POTUS. However, he is still talking about the issue and may clarify the issue in the future. It is open to discussion.
