TRY UNKNOTTING THAT TANGLE:

Pelosi: Lawmakers Should Sacrifice Jobs for Health Care (AP, 2/28/10)

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.

Lawmakers sometimes must enact policies that, even if unpopular at the moment, will help the public, Pelosi said in an interview being broadcast Sunday the ABC News program "This Week."
"We're not here just to self-perpetuate our service in Congress," she said. "We're here to do the job for the American people."


Passing her health bill will cost them their careers because the American people are so opposed to it but they are obligated to do it for the American people?
