Pelosi: ĎIím Predicting Six-to-Three in Favorí for Health Care Ruling
The Blaze ^ | April 4, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

Posted on 04/04/2012 11:16:54 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she’s predicting a six-to-three Supreme Court ruling in favor of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.

“I have confidence that if we’re talking about the law of the land and our compliance with it that we will be OK,” Pelosi said during a private event at the Paley Center for Media in New York.

“Right now there are over 80 million people who are benefiting from the bill,” the California Democrat added. “We can’t roll that back, so we have to find a way to keep it.”

I wonder if she had a leak as well?

I never really thought about leaks from the Supreme Court, but you know the top dogs probably do know before big rulings come down.

Not only is she nuts but where does she get the 80 million figure from? Will anyone call her on it?

Seems like BS to me.

Unfortunately, this vote wouldn’t surprise me :(

After all, othe best arguements against this outrageous law, by the best minds, focuses on the Individual Mandate issue?
|
But, the most serious, impossible provision therein is that the law prevents USA citizens from purchasing personal health care, directly, with their own money ?????!!!!!!?????!!!
|
In other words, it enables USG to decide whether citizens have the right to _be_ healed; whether they are required to shut up and die when USG decides the treatment for their terminal health issue isn’t provided, ie., allowed. Neither We the People, nor the doctors are even allowed to choose a treatment if USG decides the procedure isn’t covered (allowed). Again, this is even if the people want to use their own money!

Duh, is all I can say anymore.

No one is leaking anything to anyone as no one is acting in any particulate manner that would either show total vindication or abstract defeat.

Why would any Democrat get out there and make a prediction only to look like idiots? Why would Obama get out there and threaten the court if he knew he won?

Well if Obama knew he lost then he would attack them.

Also I think they know he overplayed his hand when he challenged the court as unelected. So now they have to play make nice. The plan was to convince Kennedy to switch sides, but it may have backfired. Also Obama did say when the Supreme Court over tur....then he corrected himself. So He may actually know.

Now they are going to spin like it’s so obvious that it will be a 7-3 decision in support of the law.

The individual mandate will be struck down, the only question is will the rest of the Law be struch down as well, or will it die on it's own without the mandate.

No one is going to buy Obamacare willingly.

Well, if the decision goes Obama's way, it will make him look like he is so powerful that he was able to make the Supreme Court bow to his demands.

After all, everyone "knew" that the decision was going the other way until Obama stepped in to protect America from unprecedented judicial activism.

The press will talk about Obama's "clout," and what a strong and courageous leader he is to bring the court to its senses in such a commanding way.

I think they are trying to make it sound like the law is so “for sure” constitutional that when the SCOTUS overturns it there will be a huge outcry to Impeach those rascally conservative judges. If they can Impeach one, Obama (so sure of his reelection) will get to appoint another justice and tip the court for good.

Typical for libs to try to litigate big cases in the court of popular opinion. Problem is that they would lose by a huge margin based on current support for 0bamaCare versus the likely 5-4 or 6-3 in favor of tossing 0bamaCare.

I don't think so. The Obama team spends a lot of time thinking about how to shape the media narrative and the public perception. IF (and I say IF) he was certain that the vote would go his way, I don't think this is too far-fetched a scenario given what we've seen from them in the past.

If it seems far-fetched to you, that's because you don't think like a leftist radical.

I really think that’s what the “initial” vote was,
and that Kagan told her leash holder within minutes of knowing it herself,
and that this is why he’s trying to intimidate them into upholding his “signature domestic achievement”.

They are getting nervous and desperate. Just like the boxer who is about to get KO’d, they start to smile and bluster.
They are not fighting for their political lives here, they are fighting to stay out of incarceration.
They are all guilty of treason,they know it, and they can't afford to loose or else they could be blind folded and shot.
If more and more people start to wake up to this communist coup d'etat, then anything could happen. This could get ugly to the point of historic and hysteric proportions.

The answer: Any one of the other justices who feel that Obozo is pushing the court and they decide NOT to stand for it.

Could even be Ginsburg who decides, at age 80, that this "young whipper snapper" needs to understand he doesn't RULE.

Barky is pushing the envelope and it's about to push back.

That’s quite a leap. Passing an unconstitutional law doesn’t get you blind folded and shot. It gets you voted out of office (see 2010 results) and the Supreme Court making you look even more foolish.

I wonder if it is an impeachable offense to pre-maturely leak information from the Supreme Court.

Of course, that implies that an impeachable act would actually lead to an impeachment. It wouldn’t.

Let’s say it’s 5-4 or 6-3 against bozocare right now.

oBozo comes out and waves his ego around.
Ginsberg thinks - it’s going down anyway, and this punk is waaaay too big for his skinnybritches. She throws in and makes the decision so lopsided as to be a smackdown.
