A Plague to Americans?

Rep. Clyburn and Speaker Pelosi respond to the Plegde:

House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn said if the GOP plan is implemented, it “will visit a plague on Americans.

“Just imagine what plague would be visited on your family if we were to repeal the patient’s bill of rights,” he said.

A spokesman for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an e-mail, “Congressional Republicans are pledging to ship jobs overseas, blow a $700 billion hole in the deficit to give tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires; turn Social Security from a guaranteed benefit into a guaranteed gamble; once again, subject American families to the recklessness of Wall Street; and take away patients’ rights.”
