The problem for Republicans is this: The actual provisions of the law, apart from the individual mandate, are quite popular. In the polls that show that 60% of the population is opposed to it, you have to take into consideration that about 15% of that are liberals who don't believe Obamacare goes near far enough. While a relative handful of people might see their premiums rise (Brief aside: If Kirsten Powers was only paying $160 a month with a $2500 deductible, her insurance was practically worthless anyway), a much larger number of people will get affordable quality insurance for the first time. That is going to be popular, and the apocalyptic bent of the commentary in conservative circles is going to work against them in the long run.
