It Could Be Worse
The recent Supreme Court decision on health-car insurance taxation is not the worst possible outcome. The worst possible outcome would be stopping the individual mandate while continuing the regulations prohibiting discrimination against “pre-existing conditions.” That would be a gradual death sentence to independent health insurance. (In the final stage, it will be accompanied by rhetoric condemning crony capitalism.) To make matters worse, it might not be possible to repeal the partial law. As far as I can tell, the average voter is dumb enough to be in favor of banning the discrimination while still be dubious about the individual mandate.
It's also worth recalling that the Left has lost many potential allies by trying trying to insult people back into the fold. Let's not make the same mistake.
