As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was unveiling the Affordable Health Care for America Act Thursday morning on the steps of the Capitol, someone started apparently heckling her through a loudspeaker.
With Democratic members of the House of Representatives standing in rows behind her, Pelosi had just stated, “Today, we are about to deliver on the promise of making affordable, quality health care available for all Americans, laying the foundation for a brighter future for generatrions to come.”
At that point, muffled sounds coming from a distance interrupted her words. Although the identity of the heckler or even what they were saying wasn’t clear, Pelosi had no hesitation in responding.
“Thank you, insurance companies of America!!” she announced loudly, as the members of Congress behind her laughed appreciatively.

Trump busted for doubling down on his racist rants before Mueller speaks: ‘He’s scared’
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," a former adviser to Bill Clinton said that he expects ex-special counsel Robert Mueller to make a some blunt statements about President Donald Trump in his upcoming appearance before a Congressional committee that will cause voters to turn on the president.
According to Guy Smith, who advised former President Bill Clinton during his impeachment ordeal, Mueller's own words will carry tremendous weight with voters who have no idea what is in his report on the president.
"Well, what we're going to see is people who have never read the report, which is most everybody, and they have only heard President Trump and the attorney general say he's been exonerated. It does not," he told host Christi Paul. "So, what's going to happen is that they're going to be hearing Robert Mueller in his own words say that the president obstructed justice. The American people have not read this thing."
Trump ramps up new Twitter attack on four female Democratic lawmakers — raging they are ‘weak & insecure’
Faced with a continuing firestorm over last Sunday's racist Twitter attack on four Democratic lawmakers -- who all happen to be women of color -- President Donald Trump was again returned to Twitter to attack the women instead of letting the issue die.
Moments after he used Twitter to attack the Washington Post for reporting on the turmoil he created -- which has been unversally condemned by Democrats and conservatives alike -- the president thought it was a good time to add fuel to the fire.
Trump launches furious attack on Washington Post for new report about his racist tweet debacle: ‘Presidential harassment!’
President Donald Trump launched yet another attack on the Washington Post on Sunday morning, accusing the paper of "Presidential harassment!" for reporting on the fall-out from his racist tweets and his equally racist rally in North Carolina.
Responding to the Post's report that Kellyanne Conway was forced to tell the president that he had set off a firestorm last Sunday with his tweets attacking four Democratic lawmakers, the president pushed back using his old stand-by: "Fake News."
