Bill Nelson Expects Health Law to Survive Court Challenges

On ABC’s “Top Line” today, Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) was asked “what would happen if the Supreme Court tosses out the health care law,” The Note reports.

Nelson responded:

“I think that’s a possibility, but it’s not a probability. We were very careful when we crafted this law. It is going to pass constitutional muster. There might be parts of it that might be struck down. But there is at the end of it what is called a severability clause, that says if parts are stuck down, that doesn’t strike down the whole law.”
