President Obama’s Healthcare Legacy Sealed Thanks to Two SCOTUS Victories (Photo Credit: Donkey Hotey)

President Obama’s healthcare legacy is sealed, thanks to two major SCOTUS victories. Both were aided by conservative-leaning Chief Justice John Roberts, which has enraged Republicans.

Los Angeles Times:  “With two Supreme Court victories in the past three years, Republicans lacking a serious alternative and millions of previously uninsured Americans now in health plans, the Affordable Care Act is about as firmly ensconced as a law can be in a politically divided country.”

“In the decision, Roberts explicitly blessed the law’s sweeping system for guaranteeing coverage, noting that the model succeeded where previous attempts had failed. And although many Republicans kept up their rhetorical attacks in the ruling’s immediate aftermath, the prospects that the GOP would take away coverage from the more than 20 million Americans who have come to rely on the law have all but evaporated.”

While President Obama is taking his victory walk, the Republican presidential candidates are vowing to repeal and replace Obamacare. Um, really? With what? Do they really think it’s that easy to undo the Affordable Care Act and toss millions of people out of their coverage?

The GOP freakout will hit a fever pitch if the Supreme Court rules for same sex marriage. That ruling is imminent and could come in a matter of days.
