Will declare victory if the SC rules the individual mandate unconstitutional. All those “repeal” calls will be nightmares come true. And for once, the Tea Party will have made a cogent point about the Constitution.
ha. This post is also my: I wish the legion or so of liberals I follow would stop moaning about this ruling.
The tea baggers are all talk. There will be a deal reached on this because an individual mandate is the only way to actually bring down health care costs, besides stupid gimmicks. this ruling should be seen as a good thing. the bill was inadequate and should be improved and here is the chance.
Health care companies are radically re-structuring to accommodate the new rules -and the millions of new customers- they will be very unhappy if a cold repeal were to happen simply reverting rules to 2009 like nothing happened.
Even if it were to happen, were I Democratic challenger I would LOVE to campaign on Republicans exploding Medicare by $700B, and how my opponent cheered our bankruptcy. not to mention how my opponent thinks sick people shouldn’t be allowed to have health care- it may start to resonate when 30 million people are abruptly removed from coverage.
This is, assuming Kennedy is going to vote with the conservatives and repeal the bill. the tea baggers may want to play craps but I don’t think BCBS wants to play craps. Most big companies I have worked for don’t like playing craps with real money. If they even decide to hear the case. or if one of them hasn’t died and Obama replaced them.
