Obamacare Survives, but Political Playing Field Has Changed

Mitt Romney is campaigning on the promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act—the landmark health care law President Obama signed to expand and protect quality health care coverage. Take a look at just five of the ways Romney would hurt millions of Americans if he got his way. Millions of Americans could lose access to preventive services, including cancer screenings, blood pressure tests, and flu shots. [Source: HHS] Insurance companies could continue to deny coverage to as many as 129 million people with a pre-existing condition if they try to buy insurance on their own. [Source: HealthCare.gov] Young people could be kicked off their parents’ insurance when they turn 18 or graduate from college, instead of being covered until they are

Hmmm, let's see you're quoting a website from an administration who has politicized every aspect of the federal government from the justice department to the irs to HHS to homeland security. In short you're quote statistics from a tax payer funded campaign website....LOL amazing.

millions of Americans have lost access to preventive serivces because of obamacare. A big part of the law limits preventive services to once per year and deny them entirely for certain classes of people.

Who pays for those screenings, tests and shots? Taxpayers do, under obamacare.
Who pays for the consistent, large, unrecoverable costs for treating pre-existing conditions? (By the way, we're those conditions existent to the person trying to buy insurance or did that person put off buying insurance until the condition became a problem?). Tax payers and other insurance policy holders, of course.
Who pays the costs for young people to stay on their parents insurance until age twenty-six? That's right! You and I do.

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision upholding the Obama administration's health care legislation was a victory for the president, his administration and his party. Their most ambitious legislative achievement has not been nullified, and they are not left in obvious disarray.

But it is only a partial victory and in some ways not a victory at all, both in the short run electorally and in the long run in terms of the constitutional order.

Politically Obamacare, as its critics call it, remains highly unpopular. It's possible that the court decision will boost its support, but unlikely.

Most voters...
