Pelosi: Judge’s Ruling in Health Care Lawsuit ‘Astounding’
New York Times

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday she is astonished by a judge’s ruling that clears the way for a Republican challenge to President Obama’s health care law to move ahead.

Pelosi told reporters at her weekly news conference she’s confident that Wednesday’s ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer will be overturned. Collyer said the House can pursue its claim that the Obama administration violated the Constitution when it spent public money not appropriated by Congress.
