SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she's confident the House will pass health care legislation, while dismissing Republican criticism that she did not have enough votes for the measure.

The San Francisco Democrat spoke Saturday afternoon at the edication of the renamed Lim P. Lee Post Office in San Francisco. The post office is now named after the nation's first Chinese-American postmaster.

Pelosi declined to discuss when House members would vote on a health care bill, or how many votes that she had secured.

Pelosi was responding to comments made by Rep. John Boehner, a Republican from Ohio, who said that he did not think that House Democrats had enough votes for the bill.

House Democratic leaders are pressing for a vote on President Barack Obama's bill as early as this coming week.
