Minority leader Nancy Pelosi says House Democrats are happy to debate dismantling Obamacare, but repeal is unrealistic.

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press" slated to air Sunday, Pelosi says Republicans from Mitt Romney to members of Congress are "being the mouthpiece of the healthcare industry" when they talk about reversing the Affordable Care Act.

Pelosi says the act puts people "in charge of how they receive coverage and healthcare."

She said Republicans "will ask for repeal, repeal of all the things . . . that help children, help young adults, help seniors, help men or women who may have prostate cancer, breast cancer, whatever it is, any precondition. And everybody will have lower rates, better quality care and better access."

"So that's what they want to repeal," she said. "we're happy to have that debate."

The Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul in a highly anticipated decision issued on Thursday.

The House is scheduled to vote to overturn the law on July 9. The vote will largely be symbolic since the Democrats control the Senate. But it will put lawmakers on record for the upcoming political campaign.
