Pelosi: ObamaCare Will Be Upheld 6-3, "Because I Know The Constitution"
realclearpolitics.com ^

Posted on 05/31/2012 12:49:10 PM PDT by tsowellfan

When asked why she is so confident the Supreme Court will uphold the health care law, Pelosi says, "Because I know the Constitution."

"This bill is ironclad," she continued. "It is ironclad. Nobody was frivolous with the Constitution and the health of the American people in writing the bill,” she said. “So, that’s where my confidence springs from, the merit of the bill and the nature of the Constitution. The makeup of the court, well, we’ll see."

Pelosi, delusional as usual. Anyone who ever voted for that whacked out commie beotch needs their voting privilege permanently revoked.

I’m wondering if she already knows the outcome. There were rumors of leaks of the outcome after the hearing on the bill. Also, Robertson made it known he might vote to uphold the bill just to avoid a 5-4 decision if the vote was already in favor.

The constitution is far, far, far above the diminuitive comprehensive ability of this ignorant sl*t.

Ask yourself what this idiot-ess would be doing had she not boinked a millionaire.

Nancy doesn’t know enough about anything to be a greeter at Wal-Mart (when they had greeters anyway).

I've been wondering that myself. After an initial flurry of threats and cajoling from the regime toward the Supremes, suddenly all went quiet.... now this. I'm thinking she already knows the score.

I hadn't heard that about Roberts... when did he make that statement? Is he just wanting to be on the winning side?

Nobody was frivolous with the Constitution and the health of the American people in writing the bill . . .

Yeah, I suppose that is why it had to be passed in near secrecy with little or no debate allowed.

Where does it state that people will have to turnover x amount of their money to people who do not want (as I know 6 people who don't want to buy health insurance for themselves due to their jobs) or is to lazy to get it!

“Also, Robertson made it known he might vote to uphold the bill just to avoid a 5-4 decision if the vote was already in favor.”

Justice “Robertson” while being the least known member of the Supreme Court does tend to cast the ghostly swing vote on the Court.

1. If it's upheld 6-3, then there was a leak.

2. I don't think she'd shoot her mouth off unless there was a leak.

This country is definitely doomed.

What will Ms. Piglosi have to say when the Supremes overturns Obamacare? Surely she has a fall back plan for her next press conference - deny she ever made this statement like she did with the CIA briefing her on “Torture”?

I believe she has it backwards.

It will be 6-3 against, not for.

If it isn’t, it will be 1860 all over again.

I think anybody with some intelligence who gets a leak would only say that the bill would be upheld. You would have to be a real Pelosi to leak the vote numbers and expose the whole charade. These clowns can’t control themselves.

This bothers me a little. The decision should be forthcoming next month, and she has left herself no wiggle room. Normally, you make those kinds of predictions far enough in advance so that people forget what you predicted by the time you're proven wrong.

She has to be aware of this, and that's what my concern is.

“.The makeup of the court, well, we’ll see.” ..

Ahhh the huge caveat! Cover your rear Nancy...cover it....

Lets see..... 70% of Americans don’t want it......It’s an economic/job killing disaster, AND it’s not Constutional ...... despite this moonbats pronounciations.

But heck, we can always blame it on “activist, extreme right wing judges” ....and when it’s overturned it will be a win for our side because it exposes the right and it’s un-American agenda!/s

********************************

After claiming that they’d have to pass it to see what’s in it, she now claims that they were very careful to make sure this legislation was Constitutional......LOLOLOLOLOLOL (when will the moonbat lies ever stop?)

“This bill is ironclad,”

She may be correct on the eventual outcome. Six to three striking the mandate but upholding the remainder of the legislation. The rest of Obamacare is implemented but with the inevitable funding crisis. Given such a crisis, Obamney will push for single payor to avert the crisis and of course the GOP-E will go along. Ultimate socialist goal achieved.

She also predicted, the week before the 2010 mid-term elections, that Democrats would retain control of the House of Representatives. Not only was she wrong, but that election was a blow out. So hard to put too much stock in what she says.

The Nancy Pelosi Constitution:

The End. Why would anything else be needed?

As everyone knows, she said the House had to pass the bill to find out what was in it. So she didn’t read it before voting. And, once passed, one suspects she felt no need to read it. And especially so, since she won’t have to live by its provisions regarding health care, having exempted herself.

Ditto the Constitution. This glorified bag lady would make the founders weep.

What you don’t realize is that no matter how foolish she looks to the rest of us, nothing she says will diminish her popularity in San Francisco. She has the luxury of making an outlandish prediction exactly because she won’t have to face a voter block that will scold her for being ignorant. Besides...all she is really doing is setting up the narrative to be played after this is struck down. You know, the one about “activist conservative judges”...my firm belief is that they have already given up and are setting the stage to try and rally their base for November with this new narrative.
