Seems to me the Supreme Court would be doing Republicans no favors by tossing the President’s health insurance program. Even if Mr. “Romneycare” is their nominee they plan to rally the troops against Obamacare in November just as they did with success in the 2010 congressional elections.
If by June the justices wipe out the program it would eliminate a major talking point for the GOP. Even worse, the party would suddenly have to start talking about solutions of its own – and so far those are non-existent, other than giving the private insurance market even more power over the nation’s health care.
Some Democrats would mourn the loss of Obama’s signature achievement, but politically speaking the momentum would shift their way.
Denouncing the anti-health reform Republican-held Court and House of Representatives could be a driver for getting voters fired up in Senate and House races. Add that to the GOP drive to gut Medicare and you’ve got some effective TV ads to fling out there.
The bottom line is that if Americans lose benefits they are now getting under Obamacare, such as coverage for young adults and pre-existing conditions, Republicans get the blame and Democrats can campaign on restoring them if they win big majorities in Congress — assuming the Court strikes the whole program because it found individual mandates unconstitutional.
If the Supreme Court restores the status quo of our unpopular health insurance system, Republicans take the hot seat.
