A previous article on this site posited the question of what lies ahead for The Affordable Care Act, or ObamaCare, since it has had so few successes.
Well, it now has one less.
The Supreme Court recently ruled that The Affordable Care Act cannot mandate contraceptive coverage. The Obama Administration has changed or delayed ObamaCare more than 30 times. This is another change, from the Supreme Court, this time. It is likely that there are more ahead for The Affordable Care Act as there are other judicial challenges.
So much for Obama knowing the law well from being a Harvard Law School graduate and adjunct professor at the University of Chicago School of law!
The Supreme Court decision lowers more the confidence level in ObamaCare. This is not the first time it has lost in court. When a law is changed by its creators and the highest court in the land, there is naturally a loss of confidence in how effective it will be.
That has certainly been shown in the elections where ObamaCare has been an issue.
In every election this year, the ObamaCare supporter has lost. That includes the special election for the 13th District of Florida. That district went for Obama in 2008 and 2012. Florida went for Obama in both 2012 and 2008. The Democrat who supported The Affordable Care Act, Alex Sink, received widespread media support and strong backing from Hollywood.
She still lost to an opponent who opposed The Affordable Care Act.
The Supreme Court ruling is another setback for The Affordable Care Act that diminishes its effectiveness. Whether it was the disaster that was HealthCare.Gov, the Federal Government website, or Obama not telling the truth about Americans being able to keep their health insurance if they liked it, the support or The Affordable Care Act continues to decline.
According to recent polls, that will show up even more in the mid-term elections in November!
