1. Most likely not



At the time, the law had relatively few beneficiaries—people under 26 covered by their parents’ health plans, a small population of people with pre-existing medical conditions. But some of them had already used their new coverage to finance the kinds of life-saving treatments that would leave them in need of chronic care for the rest of their lives. Take away the health law, and most of these organ transplant recipients and other patients would have become unable to afford their medications, and some of them would die.

Since then, millions of people have gained coverage under the law, and that group of chronic care patients has grown much larger. But despite the fact that the Court upheld the law, and President Obama won reelection, the ACA isn’t out of danger.

On Friday, the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case that will determine whether the federal government can continue to subsidize private ACA coverage in states that didn’t set up their own insurance exchanges.

That case is King v. Burwell, but the issue at stake has come to be defined by a comparable case called Halbig v. Burwell.

2. They will, of course, be told to blame Obama. And that's what they will do.

5. Exactly. Somehow Faux will convince the sheeple that Obama did it.

3. Jennifer Causor faces a Death Panel


She is referenced in your op. her story is at the below link.

If this five old men sucking up my tax dollars for their health insurance decide AGAINST this woman's life -

I won't support any Democratic Candidate in 2016 who doesn't refer to those five as the Death Panel.

Candidates don't have to be precise - they need to spark passion and anger. Taking Death Panel away from Republicans and using her death or bankruptcy as a tool to pummel them with those words - I will completely support.

4. Anyone who votes Republican deserves whatever they get, and worse.

They deserve the suffering they heap on everyone else through their venal stupidity.

6. They'll be told it was Obama's fault

and they will believe it and die early from lack of medical care again.
