A campaign promise to repeal the patient protection and affordable care act sounds a lot like a promise to get a swift kick in the pants come election time. In a world where health care costs always increase and employer provided health insurance is always a one economic downturn away from oblivion, it’s a hard sell to get mom and pop to support such a huge step backward–especially when it comes time to refill the cholesterol/blood pressure/diabetes/ADHD/can’t go to sleep/depression/heartburn/’insert ailment here’ medication at a higher cost than any other nation in the world (to subsidize lower prices everywhere else).
If the Supreme Court doesn’t invalidate the law, I’ll start printing my “Yes We Can, Again” T-shirts.
