Perez Defends Pelosi Against Calls for Her to Step Down (The Washington Free Beacon)
Democratic National Committee chair Tom Perez defended House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) on Thursday against some Democrats who want her to step down from her leadership post.
On ABC's "The View," Perez praised Pelosi for her role in whipping Democratic votes to ensure the passage of Obamacare, also known as the Affordable Care Act.
"We're having this debate about the Affordable Care Act right now. And the person in the Congress singularly responsible for the passage of the Affordable Care Act was Nancy Pelosi," Perez said. "Thank God she was leading the House of Representatives during the passage of that."
