Despite the problems with the rollout of Obamacare, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday: “Democrats stand tall in support of the Affordable Care Act.”

Pelosi made this statement in response to host David Gregory’s question: “So final point: Democrats won’t lose seats next year over Obamacare?”

She also said she stands by her famous words in March 2010, when she told the American people, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.”

“What I was saying there is we are a House and a Senate; we get a bill; we go to conference or we ping-pong it, and then you see what the final product is. However, I stand by what I said there. Yeah, when people see what is in the bill, they will like it, and they will.

“And so while there’s a lot of hoopdey-doo and ado about what’s happening now — very appropriate — I’m not criticizing. I’m saying it took a great deal for us to pass this bill. I said as we go up to the gate and the gate is locked, we’ll unlock the gate; if we can’t do that, we’ll climb the fence; if the fence is too high, we’ll pole vault in; if we can’t do that, we’ll helicopter in, but we’ll get it done.”
