In a video announcement on Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) declared her run for reelection and emphasized that her decades-long political career, in which she has become massively wealthy through shady Wall Street trading practices, has been driven by her concern for “the children.”
“Thank you for giving me the privilege to represent our city and our San Francisco values in the Congress,” she said in the video. “Human rights, reproductive justice, LGBTQ equality, respect for immigrants, and care for each other.”
When people ask me what are the three most important issues facing Congress, I always say the same thing: our children. Our children. Our children. Their health, their education, the housing and economic security of their families, a clean safe environment in which they can thrive, and the world at peace and where they are all welcome and in which they can reach their fulfillment. That is my life. Why I am in Congress. For the children. This is my story and this is my song.
As you hear me say, when you’re in the arena you have to be able to take a punch or throw a punch – For the Children.
That is her story and that is her song. Well, that and Wall Street corruption.
