Pelosi On Obamacare: "We Wrote Our Bill In A Way That Was Constitutional"
At her weekly briefing today, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) was asked to opine on the Supreme Court proceedings on the Constitutionality of the health care law passed in 2010 when Democrats were in control of the House.
"I'm a supporter of judicial review, I honor the Constitution in that regard," Pelosi said to reporters. "That's why we wrote our bill in a way that was Constitutional. I still feel pretty confident about it. And if and when -- this game is not over. In March Madness, what happens when your team doesn't win one -- well wait a minute, let's have the game."
"I have confidence in our Solicitor General and his arguments, from what I can see from the transcripts. Mr. Conyers was pretty confident yesterday, but then again he went to the Court," Pelosi said.
Pelosi said the House Democrats she sent to watch the proceedings were "inspired" and "impressed" by our democracy.
"I was to pleased to send a number of members, representative of our caucus and they were all impressed by our democracy and how the system works. And then the substance, we'll she what the decision is. But they were inspired. It was lovely to see the reaction, people were so grateful to have the opportunity to go there," Pelosi said.
