Nancy Pelosi

Sep 3, 2013 — The two House leaders agree that the U.S. should respond militarily to Syrian President Bashar Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. It's a rare bipartisanship.

Jan 4, 2013 — Four of the women who are members of the House were a little late to a group photo Thursday. So Pelosi's office digitally added them later. It's a "historic record of who the Democratic women of Congress are," the minority leader says.
Comments |
Nov 28, 2012 — The minority leader in the House says the two sides had already reached an agreement last year and they should simply return to it. "There's no mystery," she told NPR. "There's no new factor to enter into the situation."

Jun 29, 2012 — Back when President Obama was urging Congress to pass his health care law, he rejected claims that the penalty for not obtaining insurance would amount to a tax. On Thursday, Chief Justice John Roberts begged to differ — while using the tax classification to save the law. And Republicans pounced.

Jan 25, 2011 — Pelosi told Cantor she had already committed to Rep. Roscoe Bartlett, a Maryland Republican. Here's hoping she or an aide called Cantor or his people first so that he didn't learn about it on Twitter.
Comments |
Jan 5, 2011 — Ohio Republican John Boehner has been elected speaker of the House for the 112th Congress, as expected.
Comments |
Nov 18, 2010 — Nancy Pelosi's negatives place her in the neighborhood of the unpopular Tom DeLay and John Edwards, according to Nate Silver of the FiveThirtyEight blog. That's fairly shocking for an active party leader.
Comments |
Nov 17, 2010 — Nancy Pelosi, as expected, was once again elected to lead the Democrats in the House.  But this time the Democrats will be in the minority.  And 43 of her Democratic colleagues voted against her.
