Nancy Pelosi Orlando Townhall Meeting

Nancy Pelosi makes the case for Medicare and Medicaid at a Orlando townhall meeting. Pelosi details how Republicans feel about the sick and needy.

"In my remarks on the (House) floor, I said to the Republicans, 'Do you realize that your leadership is asking you to end Medicare as we know it? Do you understand that you are voting to abolish Medicare?' and they did," Pelosi told a mostly partisan crowd of about 60 people who attended the event at the L. Claudia Allen Senior Center in Orlando. "But the fact is, they think they can do this without the public being aware of it," she added.

The creator of the Republican House budget is Rep. Paul Ryan. This is the reason Ryan got into government.

"The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand."

Rand wrote "The Virtue of Selfishness: A New Concept of Egoism." Rand actually preached that selfishness was a virtue.

Below is an interview Rand did with Tom Snyder. Rand told Synder that selfishness leads to being a "morally virtuous person."

SNYDER: "...happiness comes from making other people happy."

RAND: "Who hasn't heard it and that's the trouble. Let's aim for the day when people will not hear it anymore. Because it isn't true. It isn't justifible and the first question you would have to ask is why? Why is it good to want others to be happy but not yourself."

What person in their right mind would have this horrible woman be his role model?

Horrible woman? I think you misunderstood. Happiness comes from making others happy is bull. Why then do people tell you that you have to love yourself before you can love others? The basis of being able to help and love others is first being able to help and value yourself. You are no good to anyone when you don't put yourself first.
