Rep. Nancy Pelosi talked about women, healthcare and Social Security to the crowd Wednesday night at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.
Here are some quotes from her speech:
- "This election offers the clearest choice of our time. Many names are on the ballot. So, too, on the ballot is the character of our country. Why is that? Medicare is on the ballot. Democrats will preserve and strengthen Meidcare. Republicans will end the Medicare guarantee. It's just plain wrong. When you go to the polls, vote for Medicare. Vote for President Obama."
- "Social Security is on the ballot. Democrats enacted it, Democrats will fight to preserve it. Some Republicans want to replace the guarantee of Social Security with a gamble of private accounts. It's just plain wrong. When you go to the polls, vote for Social Security. Vote for President Barack Obama."
- "We believe in a government of the many not the privileged few. When you go to the polls, vote for democracy. Vote for President Barack Obama!"
