Pelosi Attacks Founders

Nancy Pelosi demonstrates the left's contempt for the Founders by quoting "life, liberty and pursuit of happiness" while blatantly distorting the meaning of the words.

...what our founders put forth in our founding documents, which is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And that is exactly what the Affordable Care Act helps to guarantee.

The inspiration of the Founders was creating a government whose responsibility was to protect individuals from the government, not one in which the government guaranteed people positive outcomes.
