The House Democratic leader is predicting the Supreme Court will uphold the constitutionality of the health care law by a 6-3 vote. Pelosi didn't say how she thought individual justices would vote in her appearance Friday on "CBS This Morning," just that they would.

"I think we are ironclad on the constitutionality of the bill. We believe in the Constitution. We believe in judicial review," she said Friday.

"It would be really hard to see them roll back (provisions) that the public has become used to," she said, adding that supporters should continue to "to herald what many of these things are, so they will have staying power."

Still, the California Democrat said her party is "prepared for any eventuality," including the possibility the high court may overturn some or all of the law.

The high court is expected to rule in the case in the next two weeks.

"The whole world knows that President Bush got us into this fix in the first place."
