Is former Speaker Nancy Pelosi beginning to feel a sense of desperation about the future of ObamaCare?

The Weekly Standard prints an email that House Minority Leader sent to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee:

Friends –

This Republican circus has gotten out of control:

Led by Michele Bachmann, tonight Republicans will vote to repeal Obamacare for the 37th time.

We want to reach one million people standing behind Obamacare to show that Bachmann and House Republicans have lost the faith of the American people. …

The vote gets even more worthless when you consider that a real repeal would actually COST money rather than save it.

This is all just a petty ideological game and I know you are as tired of it as I am.

Let’s show House Republicans that their antics will get them nowhere.

Thanks for your support


The idea that repeal would cost more than a massive health care system for which the Secretary of HHS is actually trying to raise money from corporations—as if it were a charity!—is patently absurd.

But do I think Pelosi has new reason to worry that one day there will be enough votes in the House ansd Senate to repeal ObamaCare.

The IRS’s spying on conservative groups may ultimately jeopardize ObamaCare.

Under ObamaCare, the IRS will have even more information about our lives that it does now. Many people are waking up to this reality in the wake of the current IRS scandal.

So I don’t think it’s my imagination that there is just a hint of alarm in Ms. Pelosi’s email.
