A Legal Victory, but a Likely Political Headache

Congratulation liberals. You have your health care law.

Too bad you had to lie to get it passed.

A tax is a tax, is a tax, is a tax after all.

While conservatives might not like the way the ruling came down, how the hell do Democrats now defend on the stump that what they just spent three years fighting and defending what may just end up being the grandest tax increase in the history of the republic.

In the meantime, the Romney campaign if having a moneybomb of Ron Paul proportions thanks to the ruling.

Am I disappointed in the way the chief justice ruled?  Yes but, like Charles Krauthammer, I think he’s also telling Congress and those opposed to the law that they have an avenue for repeal — New President, New Congress — and it’s not the court’s job to handle public policy.

(In a way, I feel today is a lot like when conservatives were shocked McCain-Feingold was upheld when it first went to the high court.  They have the right argument, just not the means or the avenue to get the job done until the opening Citizens United gave them.)

It’s now up to Republican and conservative candidates to campaign on full repeal, to highlight the Dems and Obama just jacked their taxes $1,200-plus person, and have the policy wizards actually have to come up with an alternative.  The “Hey, we’ll think of something once we have the Senate and the White House” idea is great in theory, but eventually you have to deliver.

Conservatives can win this debate against the liberal argument of “Health care is a right!,” because the left’s argument is weak when put past the emotions.

ObamaCare is a horrid law. The opinion polls confirm that.  So, it’s all about what happens next.

Conservatives have a real opportunity here and it is in November.  That’s because when people look at the American health care system now, they see that it is broken and that the same folks who gave us the IRS and the Post Office are not the same ones who ought to be running what their doctor tells to do when they get sick.  They must offer a real alternative, one that works, and one they can capitalize on in November.

Because the biggest political headache the White House now faces is that they’ve just reawaken the very giant which took down the Democratic House in 2010, and it looks like it might be open for a repeat performance in 2012.
