Pelosi Predicts 6-3 Supreme Court Ruling in Favor of ObamaCare

Posted by on Apr 04, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Let this be a lesson that too much Botox can cause severe brain damage. Well, with the all-out war on the Supreme Court led by “constitutional scholar” Obama and his band of misfits, leave it to Stretch Pelosi to at least provide us with some comic relief.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday predicted the Supreme Court will uphold the health care law on a 6-3 vote, saying she and her colleagues “wrote the bill in an ironclad way.”

“I’m predicting 6-3 in favor,” Mrs. Pelosi told the Paley Center for Media. “We shall see. It’s a lesson in civics, and I respect it.”

She didn’t say which six justices she thought would uphold the law.

I’d lay money she couldn’t even name six of the Supremes. Oh, and if six of them do rule in favor of this abomination, are they still considered unelected? Or are they the good ones?

    Noting that Pelosi had also wrongly predicted that she would still be Speaker at this time, Pelosi unsurprisingly isn’t aware that previous generations of justices have already reflected on the limits of Congress’s Commerce Clause powers, clarifying that Congress doesn’t have the constitutional authority to address public healthcare issues. Note the terms “health laws” and “medical practice” in the following excerpts from case opinions.

    “State inspection laws, health laws, and laws for regulating the internal commerce of a State, and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c. are not within the power granted to Congress.” –Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
    Note that Justice Barbour referenced the above excerpt in New York v. Miln, expanding it as follows.
    “Inspection laws, quarantine laws, health laws of every description, as well as laws for regulating the internal commerce of a state and those which respect turnpike roads, ferries, &c., are component parts of this mass.” –Justice Barbour, New York v. Miln, 1837.
    And before Constitution-ignoring socialist FDR nuked the Supreme Court with activist justices, Constitution-respecting justices had reflected on the excerpts above by clarifying in Linder v. United States that the states have never granted Congress the constitutional authority to stick its big nose into intrastate medical practice.
    “Direct control of medical practice in the states is obviously beyond the power of Congress.” –Linder v. United States, 1925. (But evidently not obvious to Obama, Reid and Pelosi.)

    It’s kinda sad to see what passes for leadership these days. This vague, somewhat unhinged certainty is unnerving. But then, they’ve managed to go three years without even trying to compose and pass a budget, and they’re all employed and enjoying their perks. So much so that these people fight to stay in these jobs until they die. Go figure.
