Nancy Pelosi: GOP ‘Had to Stop Me, Because I’m Effective’


Because I’m effective. They had to put a stop to me because we were effective in passing health-care reform, which the health insurance industry wanted to stop; Wall Street reform, which Wall Street wanted to stop; [reforms of] students loans for taking the money out of the banks and giving it back to the taxpayer and to families. I’m one of the most effective fundraisers that the Congress has had … because I believe in something. It’s why they had to do it.” —Nancy Pelosi, who announced yesterday that she’s running for House Minority Leader, when asked why Republicans attacked her so fiercely and dethroned her during the midterm elections.
