Something to consider while we wait to get rid of Obama.
Check it out:
Beginning at the 27:08 mark in the following video, Gruber says, “….If the mandate is struck the law basically caves in….If you get rid of this mandate, this law becomes much less effective.”
“The second threat is the election,” he continues:
Despite what candidates will tell you, Republicans can not come in and repeal this law overnight. Certainly not if they don’t have close to 60 votes in the Senate, even if they did have close to 60 votes in the Senate, they can not do that.
What they can do, is they can essentially kill it from the inside, because this is such a complicated transformation that fundamental leadership is required at the federal level, and that leadership has to come from the president and the administration, in terms of financing decisions, and just sort of cheerleading as this thing gets implemented.
The lack of cheerleading and financial support could cause the implementation to go terribly and cause this thing to crater in on itself.
So there is enormous risk the entire law just craters if there’s not someone in the White House who cares about making it work.
So you don’t need active repeal. You just need ignorance, ignoring the law, and letting it wither on the vine. That may be enough, and that’s real threat, that’s the major threat I think the law faces.
