Pelosi on health care: 'We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it...' 

This comes from Speaker Pelosi's speech today before the Legislative Conference for National Association of Counties. The boldface is mine:

“You’ve heard about the controversies within the bill, the process about the bill, one or the other.  But I don’t know if you have heard that it is legislation for the future, not just about health care for America, but about a healthier America, where preventive care is not something that you have to pay a deductible for or out of pocket.  Prevention, prevention, prevention—it’s about diet, not diabetes. It’s going to be very, very exciting. 

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy."

Americans are precisely worried they will find out, the hard way, "what is in it," after it's been passed. Whence "the controversy."
