Pelosi predicts court will uphold health-care reform
Daily Democrat

House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday that she expects the U.S. Supreme Court next month will uphold President Obama’s signature legislation: the Affordable Care Act.

“We believe that this bill constitutionally is iron-clad,” she told a crowd of about 550 at a Commonwealth Club event in the Fairmont Hotel. “I expect a 6-3 ‘aye’ verdict from the Supreme Court.”

Pelosi, whose discussion with the club was meant to commemorate her 25th anniversary in Congress, said the bill is among her proudest legislative accomplishments.
