HANNITY: Do you think any of these constitutional challenges that are out there about the employer mandate, individual mandate, or any of the other challenges -- do you think as they work through their way to the courts, any of that will be effective? What do you think about the process? The Senate is saying through reconciliation that there's a lot they can stop, although they didn't get one ruling with the Senate parliamentarian today.

GINGRICH: Well, I don't know what will happen at this stage. And I don't know whether they can just force reconciliation through. I suspect, given the style of this administration, they call in the Senate parliamentarian and said there are two futures. Change your position or get fired. And so he decided as a career enhancing move --

HANNITY: Well, Joe Biden could override him as the president of the Senate anyway, so -

GINGRICH: Then you have to appeal the president's ruling and they'd probably lose that fight. But my sense is -- first of all, I'm glad to see that some 13 attorneys general around the country --

HANNITY: Are going to sue.

GINGRICH: Have sued. Based on a 1992 Supreme Court decision which said that the federal government cannot punish you for failure to do something. I think that there's an outside chance the suit will hold up. And that that will stop the individual mandate at the federal level. But I don't think people have fully read the final version of this bill, not to mention the final version of reconciliation. And there may be a number of places where this legislation is open. Plus, you know the left is going to sue and the executive order on abortion.
