Pelosi predicts 6-3 victory for health law

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday predicted the Supreme Court will uphold the health care law on a 6-3 vote, saying she and her colleagues “wrote the bill in an ironclad way.”

“I’m predicting 6-3 in favor,” Mrs. Pelosi told the Paley Center for Media. “We shall see. It’s a lesson in civics, and I respect it.”

She didn’t say which six justices she thought would uphold the law.

Unlike the White House, which said it is not thinking ahead to what happens if the court strikes down part or all of the law, Mrs. Pelosi did grapple with that question, saying Congress will have to find a way to make sure that the benefits she said are now going to 80 million people must be preserved.
