Conservatives have a dilemma. Much of the hated Affordable Care Act has been well received by Americans not on the Kochwhore payroll. Even Scott Walker almost flubbed up on this.
Conservatives face two conflicts. The first is they don’t have anything to really replace popular provisions like not being able to deny preexisting conditions or kids being able to stay on their parents insurance until age 26. The ACA was based on conservative solutions cooked up by wingnut think-tanks like the Heritage Foundation and put into practice by Mitt Romney, there’s nothing substantial to the right of it. The other is the one component they have bet the farm on striking down, the individual mandate, is the part that gives CEOs that dreamy eyed-look normally reserved for steep tax cuts and a well endowed mistress.
If the Supreme Court strikes down the mandate, it also closes the door on a bunch of other things Wall Street loves and millions of people have already begun to depend on. Watching Romney bots scramble to keep all those flaming swords in the air will be almost as funny as hearing them explain at length why states are allowed to violate the Constitution of the United States.
