House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi put out a statement Friday that she told her colleagues in private earlier this year that if Hillary Clinton had won the election, she would have retired. Looks like Pelosi can’t wait to leave Washington, D.C. after the Chistian Science Monitor breakfast in D.C.. Pelosi opened up to reporters about what her plans were if Hillary had become president.
“If Hillary had won, I was ready to go home,” Pelosi told reporters.
The Minority Leader said she felt she had to stay to protect ObamaCare. Had Hillary won the election she would ‘defend and expand Obamacare’ passed while Nancy Pelosi was Speaker of the House in 2010.
The 76-year-old cleverly beat Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan and retained her job as House Minority Leader last November. Pelosi has propelled herself to the top when she was first given the position of House Minority Leader in 2003. Later, in 2007, she became the first female Speaker of the House.
Pelosi has been a fighter for Obamacare before it was passed. She is most well known for her memorable line as Speaker of the house.
“We have to pass the bill, so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy,” she said in March 2010 during a debate leading up to the passage of the Affordable Care Act.
Pelosi won’t let go of her hold on Obamacare. She told Democrat House colleagues in a closed-door meeting last month, that she had an obligation to stay and protect her signature legislative achievement as Speaker.
“If Hillary had won, [Pelosi] probably would have been offered the Ambassadorship to Rome and lived happily ever after,” Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., told Politico during an interview.
Pelosi will not say whether she plans to run for re-election in 2018, but did say that she’s taking…“one day to the next.”
