Skip to comments.Pelosi: ObamaCare Will Be Upheld 6-3, "Because I Know The Constitution"
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, 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."

You have to read the Constitution first, to know what’s in it Witch!
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.
Look up clueless socipath in the dictionary and her pic is there... pathetic

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?
Yeah, I suppose that is why it had to be passed in near secrecy with little or no debate allowed.
Plousy doesn’t know which side of her a$$ faces out in the morning
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.
2. I don't think she'd shoot her mouth off unless there was a leak.
This country is definitely doomed.
Roberts remarks were reported here on FR after the hearings were over. Sorry I can’t provide a link.
There is no Justice Robertson on the Supreme Court.
“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, 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.”
I swear these people thinks they can speak things into truth. It’s laughable. They think they are gods.
“Are you serious? Are you serious?”
Individual Mandate to be ruled unconstitutional by US Supreme Court The US Supreme Court to rule individual mandate unconstitutional before midnight ET 31 Dec 2012
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.
The bill you rammed through congress before anyone read it? Idiot.
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.
I agree - - somebody gave her the inside scoop and she could not keep her f’n mouth shut. Looks like we are going to be at the St. Louis Home for the Totally F - - - - d!!
Obama didn’t threaten SCOTUS if he didn’t know Obamacare was lost.
pelosi’s “knowledge” of the Constitution:
“blah blah blah blah promote blah welfare blah blah blah blah...”
she is so full of crap it’s coming out of her mouth.
She has to be aware of this, and that's what my concern is.
“.The makeup of the court, well, well 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?)
Nancy predicted that she would be Speaker of the House in 2010. I take everything that this idiot says with a grain of salt.
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.
“Anyone who ever voted for that whacked out commie beotch needs their voting privilege permanently revoked.”
In her district she’s considered a “moderate middle of the roader” LOLOLOLOLOL! Welcome to OZ!
“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” - Nancy Pelosi
“First we will make the revolution, and then we will find out what for.” - Tom Hayden 1968
Talking trash again ....... That senile old moonbat. She’s just trying psyche out the Supreme Court and intimidate them.
It's the nature of the Constitution that's important. Wasn't that made clear back when clinton ruled?
LOL! Pelosi got her ‘Constitutional Law Degree’ from the same place Obama did....from the inside of a pack of matches.
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.
Remember that pubs and independents both HATE Obamacare.
If SCOTUS upholds, the RNC has TWO issues this election (economy and healthcare).
Congress shall have the power “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.”
The End. Why would anything else be needed?
That was the link I included in my reply. That woman is clueless.
Nancy got her BS in poli sci. That, her mafia daddy and rich husband make her an expert on the Constitution. She know how to weasel her way around it. Nancy is special.
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.
I am on the side that she knows..or maybe this is a trial balloon so someone can see the response.
