On eve of health ruling, Ruth Bader Ginsburg predicts 'sharp disagreement' By: Kyle Cheney June 15, 2012 07:23 PM EDT
With a wry smile, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg laid waste Friday to all those rumors about the fate of the Affordable Care Act in the Supreme Court.
Those who know dont talk. And those who talk dont know, she quipped Friday night at a conference hosted by the American Constitution Society at the Capital Hilton.
Ginsburg said she was responding to a "steady stream of rumors and fifth-hand accounts" about the court's deliberations on the law.

Careful not to tip her hand on the courts ruling expected in the next two weeks Ginsburg described the oral arguments in the case as unprecedented for the number of press conferences, prayer circles, protests and counterprotests that occurred on the courthouse steps.
Although she offered no insight into the tightly held decisions of her colleagues, Ginsburg did indicate that many of the courts decisions over the next two weeks which are also expected to include an FCC indecency ruling might be close.
The 21 remaining decisions, she said, were many of the most controversial cases that the court reviewed this term.
It is likely that the sharp disagreement rate will go up next week and the week after, she said.
Although the oral arguments on the ACA spanned six hours over three days, she noted that a case cited during those arguments McCullough v. Maryland featured oral arguments that spanned nine days over two months.

Where she is concerned, I’d rather have a dull, extended, eternal and decidedly deliberate and interminal disagreement!!!
Since Ginsburg has no respect for our Constitution, why is she speaking at a Constitution Society function?
The ‘American Constitution Society ‘ is a commie/living constitution/praise-be-to-Soros Democrat PR group.
I reiterate my prior prediction- Eight votes to kill Obamacare, Ginsburg the lone dissent.
Expect a 5-to-4 ruling.
That’s one butt-ugly rodent!
What kind of animal is that other one on the right?
Lying SOB’s, all of them.
“With a wry smile,” the story says.
That worries me.
Remember the temper tantrum this sourpuss threw after Bush v. Gore?
But I’m hopin’ you’re right...
Any other differences?
Isn’t Kagan a given yes being that she was Obama’s solicitor for it?
Thanks for filling us in Ruth. I thought it was going to be a unanimous decision. [/sarc]
Since she's talking...
The one on the left cuts cheese. The one on the right eats cheese ... Any other differences?
Yeah ... the one on the right is smarter ... better mannered ... more charming ... sexier ... more likable ... more qualified ... doesn't prefer South African law over the U.S. Constitution ... and doesn't kill unborn babies.
Is Zzzz Ginsburg related to Woo Woo Ginzburg?
I am assuming they are going to release the decision on the 29th since the next week is the 4th of July and everyone will want to get out of town.
Isn’t the “American Constitution Society” the group that the Rosenberg children(who go by another name) work with?
One word comes to mind and it starts with a B and ends with ITCH! Stuff it you old bag.
