    Rep. Nancy Pelosi predicts Supreme Court will back healthcare law



    By Kim Geiger April 4, 2012, 11:17 a.m.


    Reporting from Washington—

    Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi predicts that the Supreme Court will rule, by a 6-3 vote, to uphold the healthcare law that she helped enact in 2010, though she acknowledged that “you never know what the court will do.”

    Speaking Tuesday at a luncheon at the Paley Center for Media in New York, Pelosi criticized Republican opponents of the law for asking the court to overturn it when the GOP typically objects to judicial intervention.

    “They were not big fans of the courts … until now,” Pelosi said. “Now, they support judicial review.”

    Pelosi, a California Democrat who is now minority leader, said she was confident that the bill could withstand the challenge because “we wrote the bill in an ironclad way.”

    Gee, Nancy...maybe if you'd given us a good piece of legislation in the first place...something that actually brought down the cost of health care for Americans...then we wouldn't be having to FIX the load of crap that you did give us?

    California GOP loses an up-and-comer in Nathan Fletcher - Los Angeles Times


    The tipping point for Fletcher came last fall when he negotiated with Gov. Brown to eliminate a corporate tax break that rewarded companies for not building facilities and creating jobs in California. The $1-billion savings would have provided tax breaks for small businesses, buyers of manufacturing equipment and income tax payers who don't itemize. Republicans blocked the bill.

    GOP colleagues told Fletcher, he says, that "'it may be the right thing to do, but we can't let Jerry Brown get a win,' which is just dumb."

    In "On the Waterfront," the Brando character, an ex-boxer, bemoans that "I coulda had class."

    Fletcher had it and still does. But the GOP has lost a contender.

    Pelousy is an idiot.

    Putting her SCOTUS prediction to the side, she also just lies.

    How could she have written the bill in an allegedly iron-clad way when she forgot to insert even a perfunctory "severability" clause?

    And how could she know if she had written an allegedly iron-clad bill when she said it would have to be passed before they could know what was in it?

    She's a stupid lying hack.

    Furthermore, Republicans (generally speaking) have never taken much issue with judicial review. She's another lying twit who cannot distinguish between judicial review on the one hand and judicial activism on the other hand.

    Pelousy is a lying, drooling , senile, rancid piece of shit.

    And she can't blink.

    Actual image of Nancy Pelousy TRYING to blink ----> :eek:
