But on Representative Pelosi’s 75th birthday this Thursday, it would appear that she was suffering from a small case of memory loss as now she claims that Obamacare was really “All about value”:
“What a way to celebrate a birthday than with a wish coming true that we could work together to get the job done for the American people.
