Plouffe On HCR: ‘We’re Confident That It’ll Be Constitutional’

One day before the Supreme Court begins hearing arguments on the health care reform law, White House senior adviser David Plouffe predicted that it will be upheld. 

“Well, you’ve seen jurists appointed by both Democrats and Republicans in lower courts uphold this law,” Plouffe said on Fox News Sunday. “Two very important conservative jurist offering very strong opinions. So we’re confident that it’ll be constitutional.”

“We’re going to continue to implement this law smartly,” he added, “and inform people of the benefits that are available to them.”
