    ...with all their hollow posturing about repealing it.

    They should remember prohibition.  Once you've given the public something, it's hard to take it back from them.  It doesn't work very well.  And, once Obamacare starts helping more and more people, they're going to remember who wanted to take it away from them.

    It won't hurt the GOP's base very much, because at this point the GOP's base are a bunch of theocratic morons who are only voting because they think the Republicans are the Jesus party, and they'll vote faith-based no matter what results they actually get.   I know plenty of Republicans at work who complain all day about things that happen in my state that they don't realize are caused by Republican policies, but even if they knew they'd still vote GOP because, quite honestly, they're dullards who are hung up on believing something no matter what the facts are.  But moderates who lean Republican are going to look unkindly on having something that's beneficial to them taken away.  It's going to make the Republicans in office look like they have very bad judgement.  Which, of course, they do.
