These past few months, it was revealed that sexual harassment is a significant problem in the Congress. They have been using the taxpayer money to pay off settlements, which is an issue. But when looking at the case of Rep. John Conyers it also becomes clear another deep problem. And that is the competence of older members to do their job in Congress, particularly among the Democrats.
Many Democrats have been there for more than 30 years, many are in their late 70s, and some even in their 80s, like Conyers.
And Conyers is not the only question.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi has had some issues for a long time now. What is happening exactly it’s not clear. Whether it’s age-related illness or something else.
She was preaching how evil the GOP tax bill is and how Republicans only want to harm the everyday American.
She arrived at the stage with a huge sign “GOP tax sham” but, as she was walking she looked over her shoulder to search for the very same sign.
When she realized it was to her right, she pivoted and announced, “Here it is: the GOP tax scam.”
Then she started attacking the tax bill, but her speech was incoherent, she was repeating, slurring and inventing words.
She twitched, stumbled and stuttered the whole speech.
“It will unravel the ACA,” she said, using liberal terminology for what everyone calls “Obamacare.”
The Senate version of the tax reform would repeal Obamacare’s individual mandate.
“The sneaky ACA ref .. reform,” she then repeated. “Repeal … sneaky ACA repeal.”
“It’s a lethal attack on the middle class, on America’s jobs … on Americans’ jobs,” she later said.
She also refers to “ever-veterans,” whatever that may mean, and congressional “bri-partisanship” about the attempt to pass DACA.
She also talked about President Trump and the dispute they had been having lately.
“How can you judge — judgment be respected if you don’t even know what you’re talking about?” she uttered.
And this comes from a woman who said “you have to pass it to see what’s in it” about Obamacare.
This isn’t the first time that Pelosi has had problems with incoherence in her speech.
