The former Speaker of the House was certainly singing a different tune two years ago when she helped ram the monstrosity down our collective throats. But now, not so much. On the Constitutionality of Obamacare, Nancy Pelosi said she “has no idea” whether or not the Supreme Court will uphold the individual mandate to purchase health insurance.
On October 22, 2009 CNSNews.com asked Pelosi, “Madam Speaker, where specifically does the Constitution grant Congress the authority to enact an individual health insurance mandate?”
Pelosi responded, “Are you serious? Are you serious?”
Her press spokesman, Nadeam Elshami, then told CNSNews.com that asking the then-speaker of the House where the Constitution authorized Congress to mandate that individual Americans buy health insurance was not a ”serious question.”
Right, not a serious question. Because the Supreme Court only takes up issues that aren’t very serious. When it comes to Nancy Pelosi, “I have no idea” is probably the most honest thing you’ll ever hear her say into a microphone.
