House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently decided to weigh in on the GOP health care reform bill in the Senate and her statement has conservatives across the country chuckling.

Back when Obamacare was being debated in Congress, Pelosi infamously said the bill needed to be passed before we could know what’s in it.

It appears she’s now changing her tune.

According to TheBlaze, One of the most famous lines in recent political history came in 2010 when then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Congress needed to pass Obamacare “so you can see what’s in it.”

The Democrats’ fight to pass the health care reform bill was already arduous and divisive, but Pelosi’s famous line made a complete mockery of their efforts. Many Americans thought Pelosi’s remark exemplified career politicians: They care only about passing legislation to say they’ve done something, no matter the effects of that legislation.

On Tuesday, Pelosi’s famous remark came full circle when she took to her Twitter account to advocate that Senators first read a health care reform bill pushed by Senate Republicans before passing it.

“.@SenJohnMcCain calling out Republican hypocrisy is music to my ears. Americans deserve to know what’s in the bill,” Pelosi wrote, adding the hashtag “#TrumpCare.”

Of course, Pelosi is right about this. We do deserve to know what’s in the bill, however, we also deserved to know what was in Obamacare as well, but unfortunately she didn’t possess the view she currently has on the matter.

The Internet also took note of the hypocrisy:

The only way to help keep lawmakers accountable to the promises they make is to look at the legislation they craft to ensure they’re living up to their word, which is impossible to do if we don’t have access to the information.

Transparency is a good thing, but unfortunately, there’s far too little of it in modern politics.
