Nancy Pelosi "Mandate Not Delayed" Claim An Attempt to "Deny Reality"

Not a part of the reality-based community

The big news on ObamaCare these past two weeks has been the administration's announcement that it will delay by one year the requirement on businesses to provide health insurance. 

Nancy Pelosi, though, had a curious take on the whole thing. Actually, she instructed reporters, "The mandate was not delayed." 

The House Democratic leader used some creative reasoning to make her case—she claimed the administration really only delayed the requirement on businesses to report insurance coverage details. 

But The Washington Post fact-checker on Friday shut it down, effectively ruling that Pelosi is trying to "deny reality."
