Gibbs: Supreme Court ‘Likely To Uphold’ Health Care Law

Robert Gibbs, a senior campaign adviser to President Obama, predicted Sunday that the Supreme Court will uphold the Affordable Care Act.

“I don’t know what the impact would be on either side [if the court were to strike it down],” he said on CBS’ Face The Nation. “I think that if one listens to the full argument that was made in front of the Supreme Court, that they’re likely to uphold the health care law.”

Gibbs said upholding the law would be especially important for those with pre-existing condition.

A ruling is expected by the end of June.
