Obama Predicts Victory On Health Care Law

President Barack Obama says he is confident the Supreme Court will uphold his health care overhaul. He says his administration is “not spending a whole lot of time planning for contingencies” in the event that the law is struck down.

The president was asked about the future of the law, which faced a skeptical reaction from conservative justices during oral arguments before the Supreme Court last week.

Obama told newspaper executives at the annual meeting of The Associated Press that he doesn’t expect the court to strike the law down because, in his words, “they take their responsibilities very seriously.”

Obama says the nation’s high court has exercised “restraint” and “deference” to Congress in economic cases in the past. He expects it to handle this situation the same way.
