Okay, she's not everyone's favorite, but I think Nancy Pelosi is a great politician. A reminder comes with this: "Democrats would tattoo Medicare right to their foreheads in an effort to seize back control of the House from Republicans."Driving home the point: "What we think is at stake is Medicare, Medicare, Medicare, because it will not exist if they win....Infinitely more important to me than the results of the election is whether Medicare survives. And it will not survive if they were to win.Maybe it's her Baltimore upbringing! At Politico.
