Washington — As tough questions swirled about President Obama’s healthcare reform law, White House officials said Wednesday that they aren’t making plans for the possibility that the Supreme Court knocks some or all of it down.
The White House expects that the law will be upheld, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said, and is focused on implementing the healthcare law.
“There’s no contingency planning going on,” Earnest told reporters. “We remain fully confident in the belief that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.”
Senior administration officials also defended the work of Solicitor Gen. Donald Verrilli, after a spate of critical assessments rendered by left-leaning writers in the wake of Tuesday’s oral arguments.
