Four reasons why Romney is “blowin’ smoke up …” (see photo)

Via: Think Progress

Responding to Thursday’s Supreme Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Congressional Republicans have scheduled a vote in the House to repeal the law and Mitt Romney pledged to undo the measure if he’s elected president in November. But unless the GOP wins a super majority in the Senate — a scenario no one thinks is plausible — it can do little more than weaken Obamacare’s regulations and defund some of its provisions. Here is why:

1. Romney has no authority to issue waivers.

2. Congress can’t repeal the full law through reconciliation.

~

3. Republicans have NOTHING to replace it with.

~

4.  Americans support Obamacare’s provisions.

While Americans may not like “Obamacare” — and the political process of passing it — they do support its major provisions and are likely to resist any effort by Republicans to take away their benefits.

A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll found that while 56 percent of Americans oppose the law as a whole,

 61 percent of respondents favored allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance plans until age 26,

72 percent wish to maintain the requirement that companies with more than 50 workers provide health insurance for their employees,

82 percent of respondents favored banning insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.

As MORE BENEFITS roll out in 2014, it will be increasingly difficult for Republicans to argue for their repeal.

It wasn’t just CNN, but NPR, Time, Fox News (big surprise there!); and I suspect the majority the American people.

personal thought:

Good for the Supreme Court, and GOOD for US!

Re-Elect Truman; no no, no, I mean Re-Elect Obama!

‘Victory for the American People!’ – yeah, but did ‘Boehner, Boner, whatever’, cry?

For the record: this was taken the day before the ruling.
