Pelosi sees Roberts helping uphold U.S. healthcare law
Reuters ^ | June 27, 2012 | Thomas Ferraro

Posted on 06/27/2012 4:48:51 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the U.S. Supreme Court prepared to announce a decision on President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law, one of the legislation's chief supporters predicted that it would be upheld by a 6-3 vote.

Nancy Pelosi, the House of Representatives' Democratic leader, said she can see Chief Justice John Roberts siding with Obama in an anticipated divided Supreme Court ruling on Thursday.

"I believe 6-3," Pelosi told the Reuters Washington Summit on Wednesday.

She reasoned that a decision upholding the law would require the support of Justice Anthony Kennedy, a moderate conservative who often controls the outcome of the court's rulings since the justices frequently are split in their decisions.

"If you get Kennedy, I don't think that Roberts would want it to look political" and oppose it, Pelosi said, alluding to the fact that Roberts has said he favors unanimity on his court.

Anybody know if either she or her staffers ever read it? I know they didn’t before she voted for it.

So, Pelosi admits it isn't about the Constitution. No surprise!

On some level, this photo is a big reason I want to see SCOTUS send Obamacare into the wood chipper. The look on the face of this tyrannical, anti-American, demonic crone enrages me to this day.

Yeah, but did the biatch even bother to "find out what was in the bill" after her and her communist comrades shoved it down our throats?

The old loon mentioned Roberts switching his vote? This concept really really bothers me (I have a hunch he did it on the immigration case). Why are justices just switching their vote for cosmetic reasons? That is something congress does, but a court? The law is the law, so there should be none of that crap. If Roberts is not interested in upholding the constitution, maybe he should hand the CJ job to Scalia. I am also worried Roberts may be drifting slowly to the left; he seems too wishy washy.

I’m sure the decision has been leaked, but I’m really surprised it hasn’t made the mainstream or alternative press.

Yes, and he is also holding hands with a man while carrying said purse. And, come to think of it, “Steny Hoyer” just sounds really gay.

“...I agree to this Constitution, with all its faults, if they are such... and believe further, that this is likely to be well-administered for a course of years, and can only end in despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other...”

if Sandra Day Oconnor has taught us anything, it's that the Court can conjure up any opinion they want, and I don't trust this court at all...

the elites have wanted to saddle Americans forever with paying more money to the govt coffers and now is their chance to do it by making a SS type taxation system that we can't get out of ....except the favored few...unions, govt workers etc...they'll probably all be exempt....and of course the Congresscritters...

they'll probably tear the Constitution to bits just to please their political hacks....

be very afraid...

I must correct myself. Some people voted. Many didn’t. Many shouldn’t. It certainly isn’t helping though.

Fun thought about the purse, but Steny is holding John Lewis’ hand. The other hand is empty. The partially pictured woman next to Steny is carrying the purse.

remember all....we had a chance at the Senate in 2008....but we lost because people voted for a third party candidate in Minn and in other places where just enough voted third party to edge out the pub...

not saying the pubs would not have knuckled under to bamey , but it would have at least been a fight...

consider that when you vote...every vote has consequences....and we're paying for the consequences of having too many throw their vote away...

still angry about the Perotist....I hated George the Sr and Dole was really just an old man, but would have taken them both over a crook rat liberal like Clinton...who spent 8 yrs appointed crooked liberal judges...

Damn, you're right. But I'm going to ignore it and make up a story, just like those leftist congresspeople did when they said they were spat upon and called racist names while making that walk. Yep, Steny's holding a purse, and John Lewis is humming It's Raining Men. Pelosi is telling a little girl in the crowd that she'll get her and her little dog, too...to feed to Obama for lunch.

.....and here I foolishly thought that the court's decisions were made based on the rule of law.
