Obamacare Battle Is Far From Over (Townhall.com) December 13, 2012

Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.

With the defeat of Mitt Romney, Obamacare dodged a presidential repeal bullet, but serious threats to the sweeping reform of healthcare remain. Obamacare depends heavily on the states and—especially with 30 Republican governors—it’s not clear they’ll play ball. 15 states have said they will not establish healthcare exchanges and some 20 states haven’t decided whether to accept the Medicaid expansion, which is crucial to covering the uninsured.

… And the lawsuits are far from over: Catholic charities are still suing over the law’s contraception requirements. And federal suits in Oklahoma, Maine and elsewhere challenge key elements of the law. Individual employers aren’t sure they can afford it, and the House of Representatives can still defund parts of it.

No one should be surprised: When you pass the largest new entitlement in 50 years on a party-line vote—and the public opposes it, questions should be expected.
