Nancy Pelosi Is Lying

From The Hill:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) suggested Tuesday evening that Democrats would have the votes to pass healthcare legislation if it were taken up today.

Pelosi, in an interview with Bloomberg and PBS host Charlie Rose, hinted that she could pass Democrats' healthcare plans through the House if they were brought up this week.

"Yes," Pelosi said when asked if she believed the House would end up having the votes to approve healthcare.

"If we took it up today, yes," the Speaker quickly added.

Horse puckey.

If La Nancy had the votes today, she would be calling a vote... today. She wouldn't be waiting one second longer than she absolutely had to.

She doesn't have the votes, and the CBO estimate she's allegedly waiting for is not going to generate any new "yes" votes for this monstrosity.

UPDATE: Michael Barone essentially concurs.
