A former Obama administration communications advisor tried to slam the GOP…
But instead ended up shredding Obama instead!
The advisor tried to reem the GOP on the new health care bill, by accusing them of not revealing what was in the bill before passing it.
The BIG problem is that Democrats did that, when Nancy Pelosi famously said, “we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

“General rule of politics: If you have to rush to pass your bill before people find out what is in it, you will regret passing that bill,” Pfeiffer tweeted.

But as history goes, Democrats broke that rule in one of the most infamous and contentious legislative battles in American history: when they passed the Affordable Care Act — otherwise known as Obamacare — without a single Republican vote.
Not only was the passage of Obamacare partisan and rushed, but then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) wanted it to be passed before it was read.
“We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it,” Pelosi infamously saidduring a conference in 2010.
Indeed, more than seven years after the law was finalized by a divided Congress, Americans continues to feel the effects of the failed law.
Premiums have skyrocketed, health insurance providers have left marketplaces often leaving consumers with just one or two insurance options, people lost their doctors, many are stuck on Medicaid, others have been burdened with a tax for going uninsured, while many others are stuck with unaffordable plans that are often usable due to extremely high deductibles.
It leaves many to question whether the law would have passed if it would have been read by the lawmakers who voted for it, given the extreme consequences it has had on the American marketplace.
