Healthcare Reform: Not So Fast (Townhall.com) October 19, 2010Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.
Six months ago, President Obama signed what some hailed as the most
important piece of domestic legislation since Medicare in the 60’s or Social Security in the 30’s. But opposition to the new law is louder than ever—and I would not rule out the possibility that some or all of it will yet be overturned.
Federal lawsuits are proceeding in both Virginia and Florida, with observers more optimistic than before about judges finding at least part of the law unconstitutional. Meanwhile opinion polls are still negative, with Democrats running away from healthcare and Republicans running on a platform to repeal it. Meanwhile states are finding they have neither the money, nor in some cases the legal authority, to implement it.
Obamacare has become a political dividing line in America—and it’s not over yet.
