Speaking to the Paley Center for Media, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi predicted that the health care law would be upheld by the Supreme Court. After claiming that over 80 million people have benefitted from the law, including younger Americans staying on their parents’ insurance until age 26 and people who can no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions, Pelosi said of the impending court decision, “Me, I’m predicting 6-3 in favor.” While criticizing Republicans for shifting their position on the idea of judicial review, Pelosi said that Democrats have “always respected judicial review and the Constitution, and we wrote the bill in an ironclad way in terms of its constitutionality.” Watch:
