Will Obamacare Be Repealed?

Elections have consequences.


The Supreme Court is the Law of the Land.

U.S. Constitution

August 14, 2011 - Now that the Iowa Caucuses are over, we can turn to questions of more serious import. Will Romney or Perry be the GOP candidate? Will either defeat President Obama in 2012?

I have no idea, but I do know the Atlanta Appeals Court 2:1 decision last week declaring the individual mandate unconstitutional was a serious setback for PPACA,the Health Reform Law of the Land.

The decision paved the way for a Supreme Court decision on the matter. This will probably occur in the summer of 2012, before the Presidential election. The decision will rank right up there with Gore vs. Bush, and will have the same election consequences.

If the Court declares the mandate unconstitutional, Obamacare goes down. Obama loses. If the Court decides the mandate in constitutional, Obama wins.

Which leads to this bit of doggerel.

Everybody knows,
That in Iowa, tall corn grows.

That in Iowa the caucus.
Will always be raucous.

That the caucus does not pick President winners,
But winnows out the amateur political beginners.

That Obama's fate depends on the Supreme Court’s direction,
And its effect on the November 12, 2012 Presidential election.

That it comes down to Obamacare and the economy,
Not to Perry, Romney, or political astronomy.
