The House Minority Leader is fine with outside groups in politics as long as they are promoting the Democrats agenda.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) both praised and criticized outside money in politics during a press conference introducing “New Democracy Reform Legislative Package,” on Tuesday.
Before taking questions, Pelosi praised the 2002 McCain–Feingold Act saying, “we want a government of the many, not of the money. We want a government where people chose their elected officials, not elected officials choosing their voters.”
A reporter later asked Pelosi what the chances were of Democrats working with Republicans to fix the problems with Obamacare.
During Pelosi’s answers, she praised outside groups for their work in helping defeat the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.
“The outside groups weighed in with not political organizing but with story telling of people and what the Affordable Care Act means in their lives, and what taking it away would do to the health and well beings of their families,” Pelosi told the reporter.
It seems that Pelosi’s criticism of outside money in politics doesn’t extend to groups who help promote the Democratic agenda.
