Nancy Pelosi Has Resolution Honoring Her Edited; It Didn't Honor Her Enough
"You think I'm kidding," Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.
First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was "why she went to Congress." Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her "accomplishments for equality," mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" in December.
"Finally, since, as she said, 'I'm not going anywhere,' she wanted to add, in the final 'whereas' clause, '...and will continue the fight for America's working families,'" Christine Pelosi said.
Nancy Pelosi would also like to change the part that says "former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi" to "current Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi." And add some something about how her favorite sandwich is turkey on wheat. Thanks.
Wait, she got a paper cut one time on the House floor. Put that in there.
WAIT. She had this really cool ottoman in her office for a few years. Make sure that gets a mention. Okay, done. [Politico]
