David Nather: “The Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature achievement, may be headed back to the Supreme Court after a conservative federal judge in Texas struck down the individual mandate as unconstitutional last evening.”
“This could be a nightmare for Republicans in suburbs and swing states.”
“The midterms proved that the ACA has gotten more popular since the GOP started trying to repeal it — especially the protections for pre-existing conditions.
If the law goes away, that goes with it. This is not the fight Republicans want to have.”
