REVEALED: Nancy Pelosi Blocked Credit Card Reform While Investing Millions in Exclusive Visa Stock Offering

(By Wynton Hall, Big Government) - Former Speaker of the House–and current Minority Leader–Nancy Pelosi apparently bought $1 million to $5 million of Visa stock in one of the most sought-after and profitable initial public offerings (IPO) in American history, thwarted serious credit card reform for two years, and then watched her investment skyrocket 203%.

The revelation appears in 'Throw Them All Out', the new book by investigative journalist and Breitbart editor Peter Schweizer, which was the focus of '60 Minutes' on CBS this evening, and which is featured in this week’s issue of 'Newsweek'.
