After clearing out potential challengers to her second stint at Speaker of the House, House Minority Leader had a little fun this past week when she made appeared on the TV game show “Jeopardy.”

One of the topics in the game was Govt. Abbreviation.

When  the last entry in this topic was picked, Pelosi popped up in video to pose the question.

Q: Putting more money in people’s pockets. In 2009 I led House passage of an economic stimulus bill called ARRA, or American Recovery & this act.

A: Rehabilitation

The correct answer: Reinvestment

The American Recovery & Reinvestment, or Stimulus Act of 2009, helped spur on the Tea Party movement, which led to Democrats losing the U.S. House of Representatives in 2010.

Senator Marco Rubio’s historic Senate campaign against then-Governor Charlie Crist was anchored on Crist’s support for the Stimulus Act.

Rubio won.
