Speaker Pelosi: Closet Republican??

The topic is “Deem and Pass”:

Tim Kaine, former Virginia governor and head of the Democratic National Committee:

“Everyone knows what this vote is about. It's about, is there a health care package or not. And I think Democrats will be very comfortable voting yes and then putting this system in place and being judged by how it does. And I think Republicans will be held to account for voting no and standing with insurance companies rather than trying to solve these issues."

Contrast that slant with Speaker Pelosi’s:

“It's more insider and process-oriented than most people want to know," the speaker said in a roundtable discussion with bloggers Monday. "But I like it," she said, "because people don't have to vote on the Senate bill."

So I ask you – is "deem and pass" then just a convoluted way for Speaker Pelosi to help out her Republican colleagues?
