Bad news today as House Minority Leader, Nancy Pelosi was reported to be hospitalized in Rome. It is being reported that she is in good shape now. Nancy Pelosi is one of my heroes because she is a true fighter. She has been demonized by the right for being good at her job. So good in fact that when she served as House Speaker she was one of the most effective House Speakers in history. Under Nancy Pelosi's leadership we got the Lilly Ledbetter fair pay act for women, credit card reform, student loan reform, the stimulus, wall street reform and a new consumer watch dog agency, cash for clunkers, the children's health insurance expansion, the saving of the auto industry, expanded benefits for veterans, a major land conservation bill, new hate crimes law, 25 separate tax laws and health reform. Get well soon Nancy! We need you in Washington!
