Nancy Pelosi, makes some very good points in this article. Too bad they are only talking points. The same chronic, systemic issues she describes here are the stuff legends are made of. As the former Speaker of the House, and a veteran career politician, she has had ample opportunity to be the needs of Indian country in a higher priority than it has been, but yet, chose not to. I have never seen her champion nor weigh in on any fight for Indian country. Nancy needs to be reminded that words are empty when not accompanied by a corresponding action. But then again, it's an election year. I doubt she has ever lived in an economically depressed area, hauled water, used an out-house, managed to survive with 5 people living in a 2 bedroom single-wide trailer, or waited hours for police services.
