House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said on Tuesday that Republicans were dishonoring God with their efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act.
Pelosi invoked God to appeal to Republicans across the aisle.
"I know my colleagues are people of faith,"Pelosi said. "They tell us that all the time."
"So, this is God's creation, we have a real responsibility to it," she continued. "To minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us."
Pelosi said Republicans were ignoring "those needs," and implored her colleagues to "look into their hearts."
"So from our faith, from our responsibility and community in our country to acknowledging that we are all one family in our country, it is very important that our colleagues not only read the bill, but examine their consciences and look into their hearts, and maybe look into the eyes of these families, and maybe make a decision in favor of what is right," she said.
