True Irony Noted In Obamacare

With Obamacare to be reviewed by the Supreme Court come February, the outcome of the historic case carries dangerous implications for federal power. Ironically however, Obamacare may still leave a legacy of downsizing the government, regardless of outcome.

According to a recent report by Gallup, the American people favor the repeal of the Affordable Care Act 47% to 42%. This continues to coincide with other major polling agencies such as Rasmussen, which as found a median disfavor of 56% for bill since its original passage in 2009.

Regardless of the upcoming decision by the Supreme Court, one cannot help but note a certain irony also included in the Gallup report: the negative impact on the principle of government mixing with health care. To think that only five years ago, 69% of the people conceded "that to provide health coverage" was among the chief duties of government. Thanks to Obamacare evidently, this sentiment has dropped 19 Points, now at 50%.

The "third rail" of politics holds that certain "sacred" programs (such as Medicare) are politically suicidal to reform. Changes towards the general attitude of government involvement such reported here however, perhaps offers a new hope for those who have long sought to reform our government's ultimate spending program before its too late.

Could Obamacare's historical legacy be a tale of such backlash against government, that the people finally grew ready to reform programs that were already in trouble? Only time will tell, but it would be an true irony if such proved to be the case.
