Obamacare

Nancy Pelosi on Health Care: "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it."

Try it! You'll like it, I promise.

Like a Tupperware container full of smelly mystery meat, Nancy Pelosi says that the only way we can find out exactly what's in the health care bill is to try it:

You've heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other.  But I don't know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket.  Prevention, prevention, prevention—it's about diet, not diabetes. It's going to be very, very exciting. 

But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy. [emphasis added]

The slightly better version of this argument, which is that voters will like ObamaCare better once it's passed and they get used to it, isn't very convincing either. (Link via Brooke Oberwetter.)
