Vice President Joe Biden says he's confident the Supreme Court will uphold the constitutionality of the healthcare law.

Biden says in an interview taped for CBS's "Face the Nation" that "we think the mandate and the law are constitutional and we think the court will rule that way."

Asked about the chances it would be overturned, he replies, "I don't believe it will happen." Biden says "I think we should focus on what is the law doing for people now and what would happen if Republicans should repeal it."

Biden has started taking on a greater role in arguing President Barack Obama's case for re-election, making an appearance on his behalf in the Midwest earlier this week. Excerpts of his Sunday interview were aired Friday on "CBS This Morning."
