A solicitor general represents the presidency before the Supreme Court. Elena Kagan represented the Obama Administration as Solicitor General. She has maintained that she would decline to participate in deliberations that she worked on while she was the Solicitor General, but refuses to indicate whether that included challenges to the Obama Health Care Law.
Constitutional challenges to the Health Care Law were raised for several months preceding President Obama's nomination of Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Multiple states filed suit to stop the the Obama Health Care Plan. Ms Kagan insists she did not participate in conferring with the White House on the health care bill.
Senator Jeff Sessions the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee, expressed a logical reaction to the inevitable sequence of events:
"It is all but inconceivable that, when the states challenged the new health care law in March 2010, Ms. Kagan did not participate as counsel or adviser to the administration on the matter, or express her opinion on the case's merits at that time,"
Mr Sessions and six other Republicans on the Judiciary Committee wrote a letter, asking Ms Kagan detailed questions concerning her involvement in discussions concerning the law. During her confirmation hearings, Ms Kagan stated that she was asked briefly about the issue, but insisted that she had not expressed an opinion on the legislation or the challenges; a rather odd statement, since it is precisely her job description to represent and advise the White House on the viability of such legislation in respect to the Constitution and the legal challenges.
Recently released Justice Department Documents are in contradiction to her confirmation testimony: forty-nine Republican Congressional House members have beseeched the House Judiciary Committee to "promptly investigate" Supreme Curt Justice Elena Kagan's role in preparing a defense for Obama's health care law while she was Solicitor General.
Forty-nine house Republicans wrote a letter last Tuesday to committee Chairman Lamar Smith, a Republican from Texas and the committee's ranking Democrat, John Conyers Jr., from Michigan, it read that recently released Justice Department documents have placed Kagan's testimony in doubt:
contradictory to her 2010 confirmation testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, actively participated with her Obama administration colleagues in formulating a defense
The House members maintain that the documents raise "serious questions" concerning Kagan's ability to "exercise objectivity" in any and every case involving the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that comes before the Supreme Court. The question of honesty and integrity should also be addressed, but Americans have no faith in the moral integrity or the honesty of the Obama White House and the Holder Justice Department.
Rep. John Fleming, Louisiana Republican:
Determining the extent of Justice Kagans involvement is imperative for Americans to have confidence in the impartiality of the Supreme Court, said Mr. Fleming, a doctor. Americans have a legitimate right to know the truth.
If Obamacare is such a great law, like President Obama claims, then why are there dozens of lawsuits pending in the courts against it? he said. The reason is the law is fundamentally unconstitutional, and it is just a matter of time before it begins to unravel.
If the Holder/Obama Justice Department is used as an example, we may assume that honesty and objectivity in the court is no longer considered to be a fundamental part of the process and that Kagan may have been selected solely on her opinions regarding the Obama Health Care issue and the American public should prepare to be railroaded once again by Chicago Machine tactics. What conclusions are Americans expected to draw if a Supreme Court Justice lies during confirmation testimony.

She’s a leftist. Of course she’s liar.
Everything this Administration does is a lie...including the “and” and the “the”.
It’s July 4, 2011. It is time to draw a line in the sand and take back our country. The 2012 election is crucial for ALL of us.
Even if she was videoed saying she did participate as counsel or adviser to the administration on the matter, then look at the camera and say, “SO WHAT”, she would still get off.
Agreed. Normally, I don’t think things are usually that simplistic, but in this case, it is true.
Wasn’t it a given that all communists/Democrats lie?
This is a trick question,right?
all the 5 - 4 decisions reflect and amplify the above point.
She is a dim... so the conclusion is forgone.
Does anyone know what's in these documents? I wonder how strong they are. And I wonder if Kagan knew they existed at the time of her confirmation hearings.
Is Kagan a liar?
Do her lips move when she talks?
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Is Kagen a liar?
Is Rosie O’Donnell a fat ugly Dyke?
If she was under oath during her confirmation hearings, she is guilty of perjury, a common Democrat affliction. That should be grounds for impeachment.
It appears that way. How would she not realize that the truth would be found out and her credibility lost.
Of course she's a liar.
The only way the scumbag lefties can impose their fascist brand of communism on Americans is through a web of lies and deceit since there's no way normal Americans will accept it out in the open.
I don’t think they care much about credibility. Power yes, truth no.
Is Kagan A Liar?
