Pelosi: Obamacare Will Be Upheld 6-3, Because I Know the Constitution By Elizabeth Harrington May 31, 2012 Subscribe to Elizabeth Harrington's posts
(CNSNews.com) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said the Supreme Court will uphold the constitutionality of President Barack Obamas health care law, predicting a 6-3 decision because, as she remarked, I know the Constitution.
At a Capitol Hill press conference on Thursday, a reporter asked Pelosi, Madame Leader, the Supreme Court is getting ready to rule in the next month or so on the health care bill, and youve expressed pretty high confidence I think you said 6-3 but Im just wondering if Democrats and the Democratic leadership have had any discussions or meetings to plan for any sort of contingency plan given the possibility that the court could strike provisions from the law or the whole law, Im wondering if Democrats are having any meetings to discuss contingency plans?
Pelosi, in reference to how the nine-judge court will rule, said, 6-3. Thats it. 6-3.
She was then asked why she was so confident about her prediction.
Because I know the Constitution, Pelosi said. This bill is ironclad. It is ironclad.
Nobody was frivolous with the Constitution and the health of the American people in writing the bill, she said. So, thats where my confidence springs from, the merit of the bill and the nature of the Constitution.
The makeup of the court, well, well see, Pelosi said.

What a vacuous, delusional hag.
Hey Nancy, it will go down 6-3 or 7-2 because in passing this mess it shows that you do not know the Constitution.
And, she also predicted she would still be the speaker of the House after the 2010 elections.
Maybe Kagan or Sotomayor have told her what the result will be. I hope not, but to make such a bold prediction seems a bit crazy to me.
Simple - today’s media is largely nothing more than the propaganda arm of the DNC.
It’s a shame all of the Supreme Court Justices don’t know the Constitution.
This is the same Idiot that said “well, we have to vote on the bill to see what’s in it”.
This country needs some kind of divine intervention when ignorant voters keep electing retards like this. Making us all suffer the effects.
I’d settle for a eathquake along the San Andreas Fauilt that takes that Commie infested state into the ocean as a good start.
Someone should get that over sized gavel that Nazi has and bop her on the head every time she speaks nonsense in public.
Nancy dear, you have to read the Constitution to know what’s in it!
She spells Constitution: worthless piece of paper.
Nancy reads SCOTUS opionions before they are issued like she votes on stuff before they vote on it to see whats in it....her whole district ought to be dumped off Fishermans Wharf and left to fend for itself...
I had to check if this was Satire,...
*sigh* It’s not.
Dear Airhead Pelosi, You don’t know jack!
You have to parse what she’s saying.
Don’t assume she means the US Constitution. Like most of her reality, it does not, nor could it exist, so she lives in a delusional fantasy land where a naked Obama rides his pet unicorn across rainbows.
And she certainly doesn’t mean the “Bill of No Rights”, by Libertarian Lewis Napper:
one too many botox onjections...it hit her brain....
Good Gawd, she is so full of shit
Pelicanosi can say anything, because when she is proven wrong the fifth column media will not report her errors. She ain’t stupid, she’s just evil.
and the pint is???
Is she serious? Is she serious?
ooops I meant to say and the point is but I think I like the typo better
Would it be wrong to pray to God that he put this woman(?) out of her misery?
Oh! Oh! I know!....
Half a quart?
2. It is the game of expectation in order to row-up the base when expectations are not met.
3. It is wishful thinking based on a faulty left-wing premise that the it be 5-4 and Roberts will cast the vote in favor to make the decision “Nonpartisan”.
We need a new amendment that says if a politician makes a statement like this, when they’re proven to be incorrect they have to resign and everyone who voted for them has to sit out the next 2 elections.
I think we have discovered another member of the Choom Gang, however, she has moved on to smoking crack!
I don’t care what the article says. The headline is a Lolzapalooza!
Not only is the woman a Catholic Theologian, she’s a Constitutional Scholar to boot!
So if it turns out the other way will you publicly admit you don’t know the constitution?
Someone should have reminded her that they had to pass it to see what was in it.
I really believe they say this stuff because they have been tipped off.
Hope not. But I can’t believe liberals on the court don’t leak stuff.
Nancy is a mental lightweight (as is Patti Murray in the Senate and many other Dems.) They talk a fair game as long as they stay on scrip, but once they are required to think on their feet they fail.
The following are the relevant portions from CNSNews.coms Matt Covers October 22, 2009 article about Pelosi curtly dismissing the Constitutions relevance to ObamaCare:
When CNSNews.com asked House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday where the Constitution authorized Congress to order Americans to buy health insurance—a mandate included in both the House and Senate versions of the health care bill—Pelosi dismissed the question by saying: Are you serious? Are you serious?
Pelosis press secretary later responded to written follow-up questions from CNSNews.com by emailing CNSNews.com a press release on the Constitutionality of Health Insurance Reform, that argues that Congress derives the authority to mandate that people purchase health insurance from its constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.
A pint’s a pound the world around?
She knows the Constitution like she knows Catholic theology.
I believe the individual mandate will be struck down, but that the courts will leave the rest alone, so as not to appear too reaching. I believe it goes like this:
5-4 kill the mandate
6-3 leave the rest of the bill.
Of course, without the mandate, there IS no bill, but Obama will crow that it is a victory nonetheless.
Are you serious? Are you serious??
Maybe this is divine intervention. Which is more of a curse, a plague of locusts or Nancy Pelosi? I rest my case:)
But Nancy, you have to READ it before you UNDERSTAND it!!!
She’s such a tool, it’ll prolly come back defeated by that amount.
It would not surprise me if it is upheld.
