Pelosi, Democrats prepare to relinquish power in the House

(CNN) - Nancy Pelosi, who made history as the first female Speaker of the House, ends her tenure this week as a new Republican majority prepares to take power Wednesday.

Led by incoming speaker John Boehner, the GOP has pledged to roll back many of the reforms implemented by the Obama administration and Democrats, including health care reform, which were outlined in the Republican "Pledge to America."

    Nancy Pelosi is a fine woman and will be known in history as the best Speaker of The House,in modern times.A lot of people who actually know nothing about her,said mean things about her. The real facts are that,Ms.Pelosi has been in the corner of the poor /and middle class,fightng for our rights. She will be sorely missed as Boehner,McConnell an Cantor continue to bring this country,and the middle class who have made our nation great,completely down.Lets hope sense prevails and these guys and their ilk,are voted out ,and President Obama voted in again in 2012. He is the only hope the bottom 98%of Americans have left,no doubt about it.
