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 Obama’s 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 you’ve expressed pretty high confidence – I think you said 6-3 – but I’m 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, I’m 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. That’s 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, 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 said.

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.

The only thing she knows about the Constitution is how she uses it as toilet paper everyday of her evil existence.

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.

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.

BECAUSE at least half of America have no clue - she is a nice grandmotherly type and they take whatever she says as the gospel.

America is sooooo doooomed...........We either take it back on Nov 6, 2012 or listen to ElRushbo tell us where to move to.

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:

1. She is crazy.

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 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 has become an expert on the Constitution in her mind (just don't ever ask for specific sections of the Constitution) every since her only way to deal with this question was the very embarrassing “are you serious? are you serious?” response (because she had no idea what else to say.)

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.com’s Matt Cover’s October 22, 2009 article about Pelosi curtly dismissing the Constitution’s 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?”

Pelosi’s 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.

I believe she's right. I believe she has been tipped off by Obama, who was tipped off by Kagan.

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.
