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.

The same RBG who once wrote a paper advocting that the age of consent for sex between an adult and a minor be lowered to 11 years old.
Sl*t, child molesting preverts.
ANY kind of smile from a leftist has me worried!
I don’t know if the ruling will matter. Obama will just send out an executive order. Make no mistake, this recent stunt was a test run.
At her age it could be gas.
She should keep her damn mouth shut!
She looks familiar.
Did she play in a show back in the early seventies called Laugh In?
Don’t worry, they will make sure she’s replaced with a commie even if they have to schedule her demise.
Those who know dont talk. And those who talk dont know,
Dang, how does she come up with these gems?
Ruth Buzzi’s clone is still around? Who knew?
Worries me too.
She should STFU but since she can’t, give her a Top Secret/SCI security clearance and put her in the White Hut. /s
No...I think she was actually referring to the.......I’m not going to read the whole damn thing which was said by one of the justices....So I think she was saying that they wouldnt’t do it piecemeal...and that Congress has to go back to the drawing board and deal with the insurance companies. It’s like the contraceptive issue....does the government have the right to say you MUST...because MUST means taking away rights.
