    hate Change.  And the insurance Powers are very, very Powerful.  And rich.  Don't forget rich.

    Obama DID manage to make some changes that will be very hard to take back.  Let's see how much damage the Court does, and then deal with it.  It will be REAL hard for the insurance companies to take back the pre-existing condition coverage or the extension of parental policies to young adults.  The latter is really in their best interests, as it gets them the opportunity to charge for covering the people least at risk of actually needing medical care -- JUST what they like.

    I'd give at least 50/50 that the expansion of Medicaid will stand.  The arguments for shooting that down aren't exactly convincing given legal precedents, nor are they unpopular except with partisan Republican state administrations that know they can't pay for it without raising taxes that they have pared to the bone.  Let's see what happens, and then . . . SNEAK.  SNEAK.  Stop crusading and SNEAK.  We all know that Republicans in general are ignoramuses who don't read the actual laws.  Why don't we use that to our advantage?
