"Pelosi: Lawmakers Should Sacrifice Jobs for Health Care"
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi urged her colleagues to back a major overhaul of U.S. health care even if it threatens their political careers, a call to arms that underscores the issue's massive role in this election year.

Politicians are elected to represent their constituents, not to follow the leader against the will of their constituents.
Now lets see how many Democratic politicians will indeed commit political suicide for Nancy Pelosi.
