Democrats are confident the health care law will withstand the scrutiny of the Supreme Court, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
The law is legally “ironclad” and supporters remain confident heading into next week’s three-day examination, Pelosi said.
“We knew that what we were doing when we passed this bill was iron-clad constitutionally," Pelosi said yesterday during an event to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the law. "What happens in the courts is another matter, but we believe that we're in pretty good shape. I have faith in the courts and I have faith in the bill."
She added that without President Obama, there would be no bill.
“We’re very grateful to the president for his leadership,” she said.
