Nancy Pelosi On ObamaCare Battle In SCOTUS: ‘I’m Predicting Six-To-Three In Favor’
The health care battle in the Supreme Court has been making headlines for a number of reasons, including one in particular: because President Obama‘s law is facing difficult questioning, causing many to ponder the consequences were the court to declare it unconstitutional. By contrast, Nancy Pelosi is more optimistic, predicting the Supreme Court will uphold the law in a 6-3 ruling.
During a private event at the Paley Center for Media in New York, Pelosi said, “I have confidence that if we’re talking about the law of the land and our compliance with it that we will be okay.” She added that the bill’s constitutionality is “ironclad” and it “will be upheld.”
She said the case could go a couple ways: “You could have one piece of it taken out and then you address it one way. That’s called severability, you sever one piece of it from the bill. Or they could say since this is in here we’re declaring the whole bill unconstitutional.”
“I’m predicting six-to-three in favor, so we we shall see,” Pelosi continued. “It’s a lesson in civics and I respect it, I respect the court and judicial review.”
The last comment seems to be on the cautious side in light of the uproar following the president’s comments asking an “unelected” group of people not to overturn the law in an unprecedented act of “judicial activism.”
