The Blaze ^ | April 4, 2012 | Madeleine Morgenstern

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.”

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.

Why would Obama get out there and threaten the court if he knew he won?

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 know my jokes are bad, but I didn't think they are that bad!

This seems like a bit much just to engage in some sort of performance for the cameras.

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.

7-3, eh?

Yep, might as well predict this as anything else.

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 seriously doubt it. She’s just an idiot who spouts incorrect bullshit all of the time

You mean 80 million people have not already benefitted from free health insurance that doesn't go into effect until 2014?

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.

It will be 6 to 3 Nancy... ONLY AGAINST Obamacare.

She sounds like a friend of mine who said that Kansas would run Kentucky right off the floor. Doh!

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”.

Just read what I wrote and realized it made it sound like Thomas is a lib.

Which of the four uber libs on the court will join with conservative judge Clarence Thomas and vote against Obamacare?

“We can’t roll that back, so we have to find a way to keep it.”

That’s what Hitler said. “Continental Europe is ours now. You’ll just have to accept the new reality.”

She also predicted 400,000 new jobs immediately if Obamacare passed! Consider the source before actually believing anything she says.

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.
