House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is taking a different tone than the president with regard to the Supreme Court and the health care law, but she expresses similar confidence that the law will be upheld.
“I’m predicting 6-3 in favor,” Pelosi said, as quoted by the Washington Times. “We shall see. It’s a lesson in civics, and I respect it.” Pelosi didn’t name the six justices she thought would uphold the law, but the likeliest breakdown in that scenario would be Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Anthony Kennedy voting with the court’s liberal bloc.
Then Speaker Pelosi’s response to the intial constitutional questions has not been improved upon by subsequent liberal commentary: “Are you serious?”
